Tribute to the most successful Italian driver of all time: Carlo Mascheroni

Sep 23rd 2022

Carlo Mascheroni, 82, the most titled Italian driver of all times, was celebrated today, at the Pratoni del Vivaro, with a career award presented by FISE President Marco Di Paola.

The entrepreneur from Brianza, who in his sporting career has collected no less than four World Equestrian Games participations (1994 The Hague, 1998 Rome, 2002 Jerez, 2006 Aachen, 2014 Caen) has truly demonstrated that the practice of equestrian sports has no age.

He entered the arena to receive the award at the head of his four-horse Dutch team, which he masterfully led in a highly applauded presentation at the end of the FEI Driving World Equestrian Championship 2022 dressage test.

Mascheroni has gained international recognition in over 30 years of activity, not only for his skill but also for his extraordinary personality. He first attracted media attention in 1985 when in Sandringham, Great Britain, he won the elegance competition, beating Prince Philip of Edinburgh in the standings.

Born into a dynasty of saddlers, over the years he has transformed the family workshop, where his grandfather and father used to hand-sew leather harnesses, into one of the most appreciated companies for supplying saddlery and equipment for the horse world.
