Winner and well placed in many endurance competitions over the longer distances, including the Italian Championship title, it is particular noteworthy that at the age of 16 she won a major 2-day ride of 100 kms + 100 kms. Now retired from competition, she is starting a new career as a broodmare. As her owner Chiara Rosi said at the presentation:
“Cherra never fails to make me emotional. I am proud for her to receive this recognition, the result of years of work, sacrifice and great satisfaction. I am proud to have been able to create a perfect match with this mare, able to grow over the years and to reach ever higher targets. 11 consecutive years of competing in endurance seem to have flown by and the memories that stay in my heart are infinite, like all the things that she was able to teach me. I look forward to next year, to see the birth of the foal that she is now protecting inside her. Thank you so much, my little great Cherra “.
