I'm Ignacio Astolfi Lopez. I am 20 years old, and I belong to the Spanish show jumping team Young Riders. In the past I have also been part of senior team for Nations Cup in Vilamoura. I am currently studying, but my passion is for horses, and I ride between five and seven horses per day. I am the grandson of the Olympic rider Luis Astolfi Pérez de Guzmán, until now he has been my only trainer. All the horses I have owned have been competed by me since I was young, as the only option for me to ride at a high level is to produce my own horses.
I heard about YRA from Miguel Bravo, he suggested me to absolutely enter the selection as the program is definitly worth the try.
Now I am very excited about this opportunity because I well know it will give me the chance to enjoy and learn from the best professionals ever, and I am really looking forward to it.
