An amazing two week competition in Arezzo Equestrian Centre in Arezzo, Italy for all the Greek Riders from children class to senior class. Parents, children, friends and fellow riders has combined vacation with the intensity of the competition.

Approximately 30 greek riders and around 80 horses from different Clubs has joined together to represent Greece in Toscana Tour 2016. You will see how everyone supported each other physically, mentally and emotionally in and out of the arena. It only proves that we Greeks will always work as one with the smile on the face no matter how hard the challenges comes their way. They also honoured us by dedicating us  two of their prize giving ceremony in which our very own Grace Antoniou has given the prize to two Greek Riders in the same arena. One of them is our only Junior Class rider, Antonios Antoniou and another Junior Rider from different club and a very close friend of us Konstantinos Papathanasiou.

A huge thank you to  Arezzo Equestrian Centre’s staff and organiser in which is lead by Mr. Carlo Bernardini and his daughter Chiara Bernardini president of Arezzo Equestrian Centre has been very hospitable and welcomed us all as one of their own. They have showed us how warm and happy they are having us all Greek Riders in their place.
