Big show jumping weekend at the Cittadella di Alessandria in the city of Alessandria in Piedmont province, Italy.
This time around it is the Concorso Nazionale Tipo A **** Featuring some of the best show jumping horses in Italy as well as their committed riders. This is also a venue for the Olympic show jumping team selection.
I think it is just grand that we have such a spectacular equestrian event here in Piedmont. So, if you are bored this weekend and want to see some high flying horses negotiating the courses, then head on over to Alessandria. And while you are there, you can tour around the magnificent fortress. See my earlier post about this massive structure.
Don’t miss it! This coming weekend June 23, 24, 25 and 26.
