Davide Facincani, originally from Italy, started his visits to the US years ago coming to work with one of the greats and member of the NCHA Riders Hall Of Fame, Lindy Burch. He was first connected with Lindy through his mother Monica Russo and each summer he would come to the US and learn all that he could from this fantastic teacher.
Davide was always involved with horses as he grew up but as the years went on he decided he wanted the horses to become his profession. With this decision came another to move to the US full time. He has gained experience working for Lindy, Gary Gonsalves, and now Michael Cooper.
Michael Cooper is the resident trainer for Rose Valley Ranch in Weatherford, TX and also a member of the NCHA Riders Hall of Fame. Davide is currently his assistant and two year old trainer. He has a passion for the two year olds, which gives him an advantage. To love what you do only makes you that much better at it. One of his many goals is to start, train, and sell two year olds at the prestigious Western Bloodstock Futurity Sales. He and his wife Katie Facincani have a two year old they are preparing for the sale this year. She is one to look for when December rolls around.
Davide is currently gaining valuable experience showing and training under the watchful eye of Michael. We all anticipate great things from this up and coming talented trainer.
