Present very often Cats Got Freckles is the Open Division in the Non Pro because I enjoy it so much, it’s a passion for me and then I try to enjoy the most of these moments. Although I come from a family with a long tradition of equestrian, I began to mount with the western saddle in 1989, first with Tonino Achenza and then with Paolo Duchi, as I walked in the United States every year for a fortnight. I decided then to go to the cow horse because I consider it the most comprehensive and difficult discipline of western riding, so I turned to Samuel Poli who meanwhile had grown a lot professionally. The show of Ca ‘Masiero I loved, the cows were good, the place nice and the people very friendly and helpful. Who could ask for more! ”
