Francesca Salvadé

Francesca Salvadé’s motto is, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way”. A formidable athlete, one of the most successful horsewomen of recent years, and someone with contagious passion and strength.
An immense heart for an immense champion; a real role model.

The love story between Francesca and horses began early on when she was just three years old. Her first experiences and initial successes came with show jumping, a discipline in which she competed against able-bodied riders. Francesca decided to do dressage with her horse Comy in 2011 with whom she was called up to compete in the London 2012 Olympic Games. When Francesca returned from London she had grown, both as a person and as a horsewoman, and learned that “you need to work hard to improve.”

Francesca’s second call-up came with Muggel in 2016 for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, her “favourite competition”, and she now dreams of winning a medal at the Tokyo Olympics.

In spite of a few disappointments along the way, Francesca has never considered giving up, “you need to be brave and competitive if you’re aiming for the top.”

Francesca has a “love-hate” relationship with Muggel. They love each other to death and have achieved so much success together, but every now and then Muggel reveals his rather unique personality and they tend to ‘butt heads’. She is developing an excellent relationship with her new horse, Oliver Viz, “he is always on my side, despite my disability.” Francesca is determined to qualify with him and Team Italia for the Olympic Games.

Francesca believes that equitation is a unique sport in which you learn as much from yourself as you do from your relationship with the horse. You need to be as one with your horse if you want to achieve the level of harmony required to compete at dressage, and learn to respect his feelings and look after him both physically and emotionally.

Francesca chooses Porrini feed for her horses to achieve consistent performance and maintain their calm, even temperament, even at times of stress during top-level competitions.
