This is the biggest participation from Italy in the history of Al Fares Dubai. The Italian group will be displaying world class equestrian products that are a result of unique Italian design talents and famous Italian craftmanship. “We have been interested in this market for some time now.

This is why we were the first to register this time and hope that our world class saddles will be appreciated by a discerning audience,” said Mr. Massimo Bertola, Export Manager of Prestige Italia, whose saddles are used by some of the most accomplished and famous riders of the world.
