Tell us who you are…
I’m Neri Pieraccini, I’m 19 years old and I’m an Italian show-jumper. I come from Rome but at the age of 14, I moved to Belgium to pursue my dream of becoming a professional rider.
Which horse have you brought?
I’m here with Adamo, an 8 years old horse. Together we jumped to a class of 135. He’s a good horse.
What did you learn during the two-days training?
We participated in class about different topics. We made physical training with Costantino (the CTLab trainer). Apart from the sport, we attended a marketing lesson about social media which gave us an interesting perspective of how we should promote ourselves as riders.
Did you enjoy riding training?
It was an amazing experience with Scott Brash. He helped us a lot and he gave me personally some tips that none ever told me before. This pleased me and I’m going to work on them for sure.
Today being a good rider only is no longer enough. What gave you participating in educational training?
Of course, the things to understand and learn are many. As Scott says you can always learn at any level in this sport. You can learn from anybody and you need to stay humble.
Are you an athlete?
Yes, I am. I think the technical training and preparation is underestimated in our sport. I don’t do anything myself but during this CTAcademy I learned how important it is and we should take care more about it.
Would you suggest participating to the CTAcademy?
Yes, of course, it’s been an amazing experience. I’d suggest everybody to participate!
