The 2023 season of the Italian Champions Tour – the national team show jumping circuit sponsored by Fieracavalli in collaboration with the Sicilian Region – officially concluded this weekend with the Italian Champions Tour Master, the unprecedented individual competition with a height of 145cm.
After two days of fierce competition, fought on the edge of seconds, the first position – and the prize of €30,000 – goes to the Carabiniere from Catanzaro, Bruno Chimirri, riding the gray Samara. With zero penalties and a time of 39.60 seconds, he managed to outpace, by a few seconds, the excellent performance of Roberto Previtali, riding Come On Semilly. The third position went to Giuseppe Carrabotta from Catania on Hangover (clear in 46.57 seconds).
The green obstacle course of Palermo’s La Favorita – the competition ground for the prestigious Coppa degli Assi – was thus the stage for the final event of the Italian Champions Tour year: a national circuit designed and built to bring the magic of great horsemanship to professionals and enthusiasts alike, with the goal of putting teamwork back at the forefront of this sport.
Now, all that remains is to await 2024 when new teams will be ready to challenge each other, stage after stage, to accumulate the highest possible number of points and claim the cup in the fourth edition of the Italian Champions Tour.
