For Saori Ishizaka, "Land of a Thousand Dreams" is truly a dream come true. She has earned it, because the Japanese has been a team member of CAVALLUNA for a long time and always shows full commitment. Although she was already a trained veterinarian in Japan, she turned her back on her homeland to pursue her passion for horses in Europe. At CAVALLUNA she started as a stable guard, eventually became a groom and took on small roles in the show. It is a very special honour for her to play the lead role this year, for which she has prepared intensively with months of riding, dancing and acting lessons.
