The season 2003/2004 opens with news of high technical and human profile: first of all, the arrival of the competition rider Mario Maini as instructor, adviser, competition rider and friend.
M. Maini, who was born in a family of riders, begins the activity of competition rider as a four years old boy. He got his first victories at the age of 8, and from 1950 onward, he participated to many national and international competitions.
He won more than 70 prizes for potence. The French defined him “great competition rider, competition specialist and excellent horse trainer”. In the 1970s the Germans called him “the best competition rider of the moment”. The A.N.I.E. gave him in 1999 a prize to the career. In the FISE memorandum he appears among the five best Competition riders, with the most part of victories, of all times. He participated to 7 editions of the Siena’s Palio Horse Race and afterwards, as the big eclectic man he is, Maini passed with ease from Piazza del Campo to Piazza di Siena, gaining a great success for more than five years. A bad motocross accident in 1960, precluded to Maini the possibility to participate, in the best period for himself and for the Italian Horsemanship, to the Olympiads of Rome.    
The master Federico Nizza with Rampichino.
What to say about him? An inimitable competition rider, he brought to the “Due Laghi” his unique style, besides the power of a strong charisma and a sublime technical and didactic skill.
Seeing him riding and teaching makes one reflect: the art lives in the heart and, there’s no doubt, for great men, neither time nor age count.
Who better than him can be the testimonial of the forthcoming programs of the “Due Laghi”?
