Toscana Endurance Lifestyle makes dreams come true
Fabio's is really a beautiful story ...
Born in 1968 and blind since age 30 because of glaucoma, Fabio fell in love with horses only eight years ago, but the hustle and passion that characterizes this great athlete has quickly brought him to challenge the normal horsemen entering in the top ten of the Tuscan Regional Championship.
Fabio is the only blind-sighted rider who compete in the endurance with all the other competitors, led by his instructor, Francesca Gentile, through a microphone in the helmet as the riders do when they communicate with the boxes. On his Indagato di Gallura, "who suffers from the lack of my eyes," Fabio says, "challenge the" regular "people on the 30 kilometers and sometimes beat them. My best result in the ride was last year: seventh in the ranking of the Tuscan Regional Championship.
Thanks to its participation at Toscana Endurance Lifestyle 2016, Fabio came into contact with Gianluca Laliscia - CEO and Chairman of the organizing company sistemaeventi.it - ​​which this year on occasion of 2017 edition has presented him to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai.
A valuable meeting place for Fabio who is also a source of great pride for the organizing committee of the event because it represents another big step toward the future of paraendurance, an important opportunity for the less fortunate people to enjoy the emotions that this sport gives every second to men thanks to the horse.
