His first major win was in 2009 when he won the Young Riders Grand Prix at the CSIO Young Riders in Bologna (Italy) with Peau D’Ane.

Viva la Donna was his best horse  for the past few seasons, and was retired from the sport at the beginning of 2017 and went on to breeding . They were placed 4th in the Young Riders Italian Championships in 2011 and he won the Young Riders GrandPrix at the Future Champions Young Rider CSIO in Hagen a T.W.

Cenerado is now his best Grand Prix horse,  and Giacomo took over his reins when he was 6 years old and jumped 90 cm classes. In 2016 he scored his best career result jumping with a single time fault the CSI 4* Longines Grand Prix in Ascona (Switzerland) finishing 11th.
