Reining professional Filippo Masi passed away January 14, 2022.
Masi was a past board member of the National Reining Horse Association, a longtime member of the Judges Committee and NRHA Professional.
"It is hard to quickly sum up the impact Filippo made on our industry, worldwide, plus he was heavily involved in various capacities throughout Europe as he was so passionate about reining," NRHA said in a social media post. "The association and the reining world has suffered a significant loss. He was a good friend, judge, and advocate for the sport. The entire reining community sends its deepest condolences to his family."
