British-based Italian rider and trainer, Francesca Pollara is leading an urgent relief effort to help farmers whose livestock is in danger in the South of England as a result of devastating flooding. Francesca explains that this is not a short term exercise given the extent of the damage. We also hear about the recent threat to the future of Pratoni del Vivaro, the well-known Italian equestrian venue and site of the 1960 Rome Olympics and 1998 World Equestrian Games as well as other major championships.
