Zorzi grew up in Monselice near Padua in the beautiful Veneto region. He started riding at the age of nine, and was successful already as a pony rider. But in those days, like with many riders, his primary goal was to have fun. To his mothers great concern Alberto wasn’t very fond of going to school; he rather preferred spending time in the barn. Already as a 15-year-old Alberto started showing his trainer’s horses. Though he already had very clear ideas on his future, he still finished high school before he turned to horses as a serious career at the age of 18.
Many are saying he has “galloped up the career ladder” to reach rock star status in the equestrian world. In fewer than two years, Zorzi has secured his place in the equestrian history books. As the master of consistency.
Zorzi was part of the Italian team who won the Nations Cup on home ground in Rome. He reached another milestone when winning the prestigious LGCT Grand Prix of Monaco riding the amazing gelding Cornetto K. He finished 4th in the Individual final at the Europeans, 5th in the World Cup in Oslo and 2nd in the World Cup in Verona.
Moving to The Netherlands has changed a lot in Alberto’s life. His dream today is to compete in the Olympics Games and to ride at the highest level for many years to come.
