The organization of the competition bore the signature of Gianluca Martino on behalf of Arabians VIBE SRLS. Hotel Globus facilities showed their value by fully satisfying all requests by ANICA; the beautiful aperitif and welcome briefing was the visiting card and the prologue of the quality of service offerings.

The program of events in the Forlì International Horse Fair was very rich in contents and catchy indeed. As an event inside of the event, the show ‘Angels and Demons’ placed itself at the heart of the ‘Grand Gala’ scheduled on Saturday night from nine to midnight. An entire District open for moments of intense emotion given by almost thirty equestrian artists under the direction of Omar Selvi. In the ring set up in Hall C, the performance of famous South African violinist Catilin De Ville, electric violin virtuoso, literally sent the public audience into raptures. The artist has already performed in 28 foreign countries in concerts and performances with a very wide repertoire, ranging from rock to pop music. Also present at the Gala was British actress Susan George, who is also known to be a breeder of high genealogy Arabian horses and award-winning international champions. Among the most anticipated guests of this marvellous exhibition was Sheikh Saleh Muneea Al Matrafi, owner of the champion filly SS Esenia, who flew to Forlì from Saudi Arabia. What left everyone in suspense was the entrance in the ring of Royal Colors (True Colors × Xtreme Wonder), top stallion producer at Dubai’s Arabian Horse Stud. With him, present at the show, Mr. Abduleziz Marzooqi Stud Manager of Dubai Stud who arrived directly from Dubai; Paolo Capecci and Woody Gubbiotti who have always followed this beautiful specimen anywhere he goes. The audience at the ‘Forlì International Horse Fair’ also found on display very particular highlights, maybe not directly linked with the world of horses and horsemanship, but always associated to the emotion they can generate in the human being: some extraordinary Harley Davidson motorcycle models, still not in the marketplace, arrived in Forlì directly from the United States. And then American vintage cars and other “cult” objects and items that occupied the wide premises of the Punta di Ferro Fairgrounds. The new Fair in Forlì started with an ambition of renewing the success and satisfactions for the public once belonging to the historic ‘Horse Show’ that used to hold court in Romagna about twenty years ago. Therefore, the most heartfelt thank you go to Mr. Paolo Cicognani, Manager of the entire Horse Fair who, after years and years of absence from the circuit, has been able to give fresh impetus to a historic fair for the Mercurial city, showing great enthusiasm and passion for the horse. Special thanks also go to the many sponsors that made this great event come true. Last but not least, the success of the International C show affiliated ANICA and ECAHO, and organized by Gianluca Martino and his staff, confirmed an operating model worth replicating also at upcoming events.
