Gina Maria Schumacher continues to dominate and above all to amaze on horseback. There 22-year-old daughter of Michael Schumacher, busy these days in the Elementa Masters Premiere, a reining event organized in Verona, won the competition and even the costume show. For the final exhibition all the reiner chose a theme and the first daughter of the seven-time Formula 1 champion had no doubts when it was time to make her decision: Ferrari theme. Gina has prepared his suit and the clothing of his Libellicimo with the minutia of details, the white horse that has found itself wearing the colors of the rampant "colleague" who runs on the slopes of the World Cup. Aileron on the back and lights on the sides for the young equine that, one after the other, placed spectacular reining maneuvers, with Gina very concentrated as a red pilot like her father.
Gina: "I could not have chosen another theme"
A choice that, he confessed after having won this last trophy, was practically obligatory. "I could not have chosen another theme that Ferrari for my costume. We are in Italy, I represent the Schumacher family and Ferrari is a myth"Gina explained in a statement that did not leave room for other topics, while respecting the privacy of her father Michael who continues rehabilitation after the ski accident of almost 6 years ago.
Gina enchants with sliding stop, spin and rollback, confirming an impressive skill in the rodeo and great passion inherited from his mother Corinna, Swiss horse-riding champion and one of the world's leading breeders of horses for western riding. Corinna has a breeding center in Givrins, Switzerland, and another in Texas, where it also has two ranches. Gina, who followed in her mother's footsteps, climbed into the saddle at 9, winning her first race at 13 and establishing herself at a youth level, both in the European and the World Championships.
Now, at 22, she is dominating in the Non Pro category. A radiant career, like that of her younger brother, 20-year-old Mick Schumacher who instead decided to get behind the wheel of a car like his father Michael. Winner of the F3 European championship in 2018, this year he has been involved in Formula 2, entering among other things the Ferrari Driver Academy's list of young talents. For him, last April, also the opportunity to try the Ferrari SF90 by Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc in Bahrain, a test that ended with the second half of the day for Mick, to discover a world in which he hopes to arrive as soon as possible, without however burning the stages. "I don't forget who I have to thank, or my husband – said Corinna in a recent interview -. When one day she told me that Gina would be better than me, I didn't like it. He said our daughter had "more pulse", which was too cute and had character. He had already perceived it, and he was right".
