For the first time in dressage history-THIRD place for the Italian Junior team at the European Championships 10-15 July 2007.

Truly a result for the history books.

One which I can confirm that at the end of the competition Massimo Petaccia, Head Chef D'equipe for the Italian squad, was visibly touched after we beat other national competitors like Denmark and Austria, who until today had always finished with the best results.
 
The  two girls in Team Carapia - Charlotte Lindstrom riding Escobar and Chiara Biliotti riding Dentano, both rode Impeccable tests. Both girls kept their calm throughout, confirming their talent shown by their qualification results. And most deserving of the final percentage they obtained, in this competition.
 
An unforgettable experience! Exclaimed trainer Riccardo Carapia, "Finally we are rewarded with the fruits of our labour!"
 
Congratulations to everyone of the two squads.
