Lorenzo de Luca

Luca began riding at age nine in Lecce, Italy. "I always loved horses, even though none of my family ride. When I eventually got one I never got off."

In January 2015 he became a rider at Stephex Stables in Wolvertem, Belgium, where he trains and shows a team of horses for showjumping. He competes wearing Italian military uniform. "It is the uniform of the Italian Air Force. The government supports the best Italian athletes with a monthly salary. It doesn't mean we serve in the military, we just represent them. It's a sign that the military stands behind me."

Luca's heroes are German showjumper Marcus Ehning and Swedish showjumper Rolf-Goran Bengtsson.
