FAVINIA: 2010 KWPN Grey Mare
Stable Name: “Fava”
Favinia arrived in Valentina’s stable as a 5 year old because of her incredible jumping qualities. She greatly resembles her super mom Loro Piana Havinia, who jumped to 5th place at the World Equestrian Games in Jerez with Gianni Govoni in 2002. Very bloody mare, we believe she has all it takes to make it to the top of the sport.
Her best results in 2017 are two 3* places in the classes reserved to 7 year olds in the CSIYH in Vinovo and a 9th place in her first 140 class in Truccazzano.
She started off 2018 very well with many clear rounds in 135, 140 classes. She finished 6th in her first Senior Championship (Amazzoni Assoluto) jumping the only clear round in the final. She made her GP debut in Cervia in July and had a silly fence down… In November she jumped her first Longines Ranking Class at the CSI2* in Gorla Minore and was double clear and finished 10th.
2019 was full of success, she jumped 3 weeks at 3* Toscana Tour in Arezzo, the first week she produced clears in every 145cm Gold Tour qualifier (10th on Saturday), the second week she made her 3* debut having one fence down and on week 4 again she was placed 10th in the 145 qualifier on Saturday and then had the last fence down in the huge 3* Grand Prix on Sunday to finish 12th. The season was very positive and she was placed in many 150/160 classes.
