CONCLUSION We will definitely remember them as two sensational days those we spent in Vermezzo, in the province of Milan, on the occasion of the third stop on the 2019 Italian Show Tour. Undisputed protagonists, our beloved Arabian horses many of whom managed to arouse the curiosity and a discreet interest of renowned breeders and experts in the sector. The feed-back from the participants was overall unanimous and very positive, therefore, this fourth edition passed with flying colors. During a short interview, the event’s organizer, Claudio Mazza, said: “This year we have worked even harder than last year, and in different possible ways, so to ensure that everything was going to be great. The central idea was to offer Italian breeders, but not only them, an event to remember. Every person of the staff has been fundamental in setting up the show, and everyone worked with great passion, professionalism and motivation”. Among the attendants of the show, there were also many foreign breeders while many others had the possibility of watching it via web streaming thanks to the cameras of ArabianEssence. The Gala dinner on Saturday evening at the “Assunta Madre” restaurant was a moment of great conviviality and interaction between fellow breeders and numerous guests who joined in. A lot of nice food along with the performances by Milanese singer-model Greta Ray enlivened the party. Therefore, our deepest thanks go, first of all, to Mrs. Barbara Morali & Co., whose hard work, great dedication and passion made it possible the availability of a fantastic equestrian facility like the MVR Pala Show Jumpers Asd. in Vermezzo.
