Paralympics… a possible dream

“Tokyo 2020 Paralympics – Emotions that mark”. This is the claim that the Italian Equestrian Sports Federation wanted to use to accompany the para-dressage athletes engaged in another exciting adventure in the coming days that will once again unite the whole country and, in particular, the entire world of equestrian sports.

Taking part in an edition of the Olympic Games or Paralympic Games is certainly every athlete’s dream. Sara Morganti, Francesca Salvadè, Carola Semperboni, and Federica Sileoni have an excellent task and probably more than one: not only to enter the Equestrian Park rectangle and represent Italy, but also to act as a reference point for many Paralympic athletes and for equestrian sports enthusiasts.

The four blue athletes are real idols of equestrian sports. Some of them have already represented Italy in London and Rio de Janeiro; Sara Morganti is the reigning World Champion (technical and freestyle) in Tryon and has, among other things, a gold and silver medal at the WEG in Normandy.

The blue of the Italy Team of Paradressage will therefore be a model to follow for a movement, including integrated sports and assisted interventions with the horses. Italy, within the FISE, sees numbers in significant growth. About a thousand members practice assisted interventions with the horses divided between the centers authorized to practice this type of activity: from integrated sports to Paralympic riding. The number of technical figures specialized in these particular areas is also constantly growing.

Getting to play an edition of the Games is undoubtedly the result of years and years of training and sacrifices. Yet, this dream may come true for our four athletes as they preparare for Tokyo. So go girls!
Italy is with you!
