CSIO5* Rome Piazza di Siena 2023

This year CSIO Rome - Piazza di Siena celebrated its 90th anniversary with some of the sport's best horse-and-rider combinations competing at one of the most beautiful and historical venues in the world. In this photo special, we take a last look back at this stunning show! 

The military paraded in many prize giving ceremonies and were a big part of the celebrations.
