Gaia Vincenzi is an Italian show-jumping rider born in Milan in 1987.
She owns a beautiful chestnut mare: Icona dei Ronchi, an Italian warmblood born in 2003 from entire Selle Français genealogy (Dohitzun Guernica and Let Tot De Semilly: two of the finest, most famous and successful French stallions of FEI French Nations Cup, in the recent history of show-jumping at international level). Gaia has been riding and working with Icona dei Ronchi since the mare was 6 years old achieving significant success.
In 2011 she decided to merge her marketing skills acquired during studies to her riding involvements, so she opened “http://www.iconadeironchi.com” the first Italian equestrian blog, naming it with the name of her beloved mare, Icona dei Ronchi. It tails about her daily equestrian life (competitions, training, equipment, outfits, collaborations, reviews & more).
Iconadeironchi.com , wrote both in Italian and English, has immediately catalyzed attention and now boasts +22k monthly readers from all over the world, +11k of subscribers to the newsletter and other several thousands of followers to its social media channels (+10k on Facebook, +13k on Instagram, +9k on Twitter).
In 2013 Gaia decides to improve harder and moved with her mare to the best Italian equestrian center, Circolo Ippico di Castellazzo, property of Olimpian show-jumping rider Vittorio Orlandi.
As she is a competent rider, she works for equestrian media and magazines as journalist, and she is also recruited for the reviews at all most important international show-jumping events. She was involved with GUCCI for their Masters grandslam events, with ROLEX for the FEI World Cup, and now with the new FEI’s timekeeper and main partner LONGINES, also for the FEI legs and for the GLOBAL CHAMPIONS TOUR appointments.
Gaia is also going on in collaborations, marketing campaigns and sponsorships with a lot of equestrian brands and saddleries worldwide.
