CSIO5* Rome is about to start

19 May - CSIO5* Rome is about to start. This international horse show is 82 years old and still going strong. Known simply as 'Piazza di Siena', the show’s charm remains unchanged as does its role of excellence in the world of show jumping.

The Italian Equestrian Federation and the Organising Committee have decided to pay homage at Piazza di Siena to two extraordinary riders who recently died and who here wrote the greatest chapters in the history of Italian equestrian sports and the event will be called the 'D’Inzeo Brothers Masters'.

The event, with its Nations Cup now part of the ‘Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping Series’ – Division 1', will be held in the Villa Borghese from Thursday May 22nd to Sunday May 25th and, as always, will be attended by the best riders in the world ranking.

The countries that can pick up points at the the third leg of the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Europe Division 1 series  are the hosts, Netherlands, Sweden, Great Britain and Spain. Most of these teams all send extremely strong riders to Italy so it will be an exciting leg unfolding at Piazza di Siena. In addition, Belgium, Qatar and Switzerland have teams in Rome.
