AMERICANA 2021: Marco Salvatori claims Non Pro Go round European Championship Cutting

What a high class field of horses and riders: 34 horse-rider combinations competed in the Non Pro Go round of the European Championship Cutting. The first three places remained in the hands of the Salvatori family. Marco Salvatori took the lead aboard his Highbrow Time (High Brow CD x One Time Soon). The two showed brilliant work on the cattle, which was rewarded by the judges with a 147. The now 11-year-old stallion won the World Cup Cutting Open at AMERICANA in 2017 with Martina Annovazzi in the saddle. Marco Salvatori was 2019 NCHA European Non Pro Champion at EquitaLyon with Highbrow Time, among others.

Coming in second with a 145.5 was Gaia Salvatori aboard Metallic Savanah - a highly successful combination that was NCHA Italy - AQHA Champion Non Pro 2018 and EquitaLyon Cutting Champion Non Pro 2019, among others. Third place honours went to Greta Salvatori and Cat Rey Lou (144), also a top pair that was, among other things, Ncha Non Pro All Ages Champion and Ncha Spring Show Non Pro Reserve Champion.
