The Tournament of the Quintana is among the best known and appreciated Italian horse races, as to be referred to as "the Olympics of equestrian competitions."

All compete in riding a horse, with the aim of putting the fateful nine rings, three for each round, and then win the Palio .. Every year in June and in September. P>
