The Longines Fei WorldCup: The carriage
Before the Grand Prix, Longines has organized a fabulous carriage ride through the streets of Verona, on this occasion I wore the Longines Conquest Jumping watch, made especially for riders, its precision is infallible, essential accessory to time the riders performance.
The grand Prix was held on the final day, Sunday 13 unfortunately my favorite rider Edwina Tops-Alexander was not able to access to the barrage, ending her race with 4 penalties, meaning one barrier on the ground.
Longines Fei WorldCup Verona: The Golden Gala
Another unmissable show was the Golden Gala, an evening of wonder and talented artists from all over the world to perform together with their companions, the horses.
Breathtaking was the show of the “Circus Performers” that started “pirouetting” on galloping horses.
The fanfare, where skilled riders were playing trumpets and drums.
There were also many other shows with special effects with the aim to emphasize the harmony and symbiosis that can be created between human and horse.
