In addition to the great return of the prestigious Akhal-Teke, another breed with distant origins is one of the most eagerly-awaited at Fieracavalli: Friesian horses.
Have you also been utterly won over by their regal poise and docile, collaborative character? The Friesian Horse Italy Association, in keeping with tradition, will ensure a chance to admire the finest "Black Pearls", learn more about their history, characteristics, breeding rules and versatility.
There will also be animations and shows thanks to the Friesian Talent Show 2017, now at its third edition, during which national and international horse and rider pairs will once again thrill audiences with displays combining spectacle, technique, fine equitation and scenography.
Taking part in this talent show is free for those who have booked their own space during Fiercavalli with AFHI, while a small entry fee will be charged for others.
The competition is scheduled to start on Saturday 28 October in Area A at 12 noon.
