CSI4* Sunshine Tour 2023

As the first three weeks of the traditional Andalucía Sunshine Tour in Vejer de la Frontera, Spain, have come to an end, we look back at some of the highlights from the 29th edition of the event which this year has attracted a record number of horses and riders. 

With more than 1000 riders and 3500 horses in action in the nineteen different rings jumping a total of 483 classes during the tour, of which 40 are FEI Longines Ranking classes, it's safe to say that the Andalucía Sunshine Tour is one of the most popular destinations for showjumpers in Europe. 

The tour attracts some of the world's very best riders, including Martin Fuchs – currently ranked second on the Longines Ranking.
