Gina Schumacher performs an equestrian routine in the racing suit of her father, Michael Schumacher, over the weekend in Italy.
Former F1 champion Michael Schumacher's daughter Gina has performed a touching equestrian routine in her stricken father's Ferrari racing suit.
The 22-year-old wore the suit, along with a motor racing helmet, at a western riding event in Verona, Italy, last weekend, while her horse was decked out in a Ferrari cover, as well as a spoiler of its back which read "horse-power".
Gina Schumacher wrote on Instagram after the event that it was a great way to honor her family and friends.
"Freestyle here Italy. What a fun evening and great way to end our show season in Europe! I am very thankful for all my family and friends that support me so much! Without you it wouldn't have been possible! Big thank you! My horse was so good, he didn't care about all the noise and the very fancy spoiler. "

Gina was a gold medallist with the German team this year in the Reining European Championship.
Gina's mother, Corrina, was the one to get her into horse-riding, but has told of how Michael Schumacher always encouraged her equine love, including giving his wife a ranch for their 10th wedding anniversary in 2005, where she keeps 40 horses.
She gave a rare interview this month in which she said the horses had kept her going after her husband's 2013 skiing accident left him with severe brain damage.
Speaking to Germany's She's magazine, Corinna talked about the ranch in the Swiss town of Givrins which Michael bought for her.
"When I was 30 and I dreamt of having a horse," she added.
"He flew me down to Dubai in order to look at an Arabian horse."
"I don't forget who I have to thank for this. That would be my husband Michael," Schumacher said.
Gina Schumacher also revealed what advice her father gave her when she got into the sport.
He told her: "When you drive a car, you can stick it in the garage afterwards. But a horse needs to be looked after all the time, even on Sundays."
