INTERVIEW WITH  GIULIO DI RENZO  VON FREYMANN

Where it all started

I WAS BORN IN A HORSE-LOVING FAMILY. MY GRANDFATHER MICHELE AND MY PARENTS USED TO ENJOY LONG WEEKENDS IN THEIR COUNTRY HOUSE NEAR ROME TO RIDE IN THE BEAUTIFUL SURROUNDINGS OF THE "PRATONI DEL VIVARO"(LEGENDARY OLYMPIC  EVENTING LOCATION  OF ROME 1960) AND ENJOY  LONG WALKS IN THE WOODS. I WASN'T SURPRISED AT ALL  WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT PRESENTED WITH A CHOICE BETWEEN A NEW RING AND A HORSE MY MOTHER CHOSE THE LATTER AS A WEDDING GIFT.

HER FAMILY TOO COMES FROM A CENTURIES OLD  TRADITION OF CAVALRY..... LONG STORY SHORT WHEN I WAS BORN EVERYONE AT HOME RODE HORSES. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO START AGED 6 IN ONE OF THE OLDEST CLUBS IN ROME THE "ROME PONY CLUB" WHERE I SET OFF FOR A LIFE LONG JOURNEY I STILL HAD NO CLUE  I HAD EMBARKED ON

Love at First Sight

WITHIN FEW YEARS I WAS ALREADY JUMPIMG IN NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL PONY SHOWS WITH THE FENOMENAL PONIBOY DE LETREQUERCE, MY INSEPARABLE COMPANION AT THE TIME. TOGETHER WE TOOK PART IN THE  ITALIAN NATIONA CHAMPIIONSHIPS MANY TIMES AND EVEN MY FIRST EVER CSIO

Germany, a Life changing Experience

FROM THE AGE OF 14 TO 16 I HAVE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF RIDING IN SEVERAL STABLES NEAR VERDEN, GERMANY, HEADQUARTER OF THE WORLD FAMOUS STUD BOOK "HANNOVERANER".

IT WAS DEFINITELY A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE, NOT ONLY HAD I THE CHANCE TO LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE AND CULTURE, BUT ALSO  I'VE HAD THE CHANCE TO WITNESS AND SOME TIMES TAKE PART AS WELL IN, THE PREPARATION OF BOTH YOUN HORSES AND EXPERIENCED JUMPERS WITH EXCELLENT GERMAN RIDERS.

How did you and Candy Girl meet?

CANDY GIRL WAS RAISED AT HOME, SO SHE WAS ALWAYS AROUND.... HER CHARACTER IS QUITE  RESERVED THOUGH AND AT THE BEGINNING HER CONTEMPT FOR  SNUGGLES  MADE HER SEEM LIKE A WALLFLOWER IN THE STABLE. IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME, THE LONGER WE SPENT TOGETHER THE MORE I WAS HELPLESSLY FALLING IN LOVE WITH HER. TRUE, SHE IS A HORSE OF HER OWN, SHE POLITELY REFUSES TO BE TREATED LIKE A NORMAL HORSE, BUT SHE TURNED OUT TO BE THE BEST COMPANION I COULD WISH FOR.

SHE IS BRAVE AND CONFIDENT IN THE ARENA, CALM AND POLITE OUTSIDE.  APPARENTLY SHE TAKES A CERTAIN PRIDE IN LEAVING THE COMMISSION SPEECHLESS AT HORSES INSPECTION WITH HER REGAL, YET POLITE, ATTITUDE.  THROUGH THE YEARS SHE HAS JUMPED 150 LEVEL SUCCESSFULLY IN CSI***, CSIO**, HORSEFAIRS, NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS, AND EVEN THE PRESTIGIOUS PIAZZA DI SIENA.
