Postcard from the Mediterranean Equestrian Tour

Monday, 10 October 2022
Autumn MET 2022

The Mediterranean Equestrian Tour in Oliva Nova, Spain, is in its 10th year and after a successful spring edition, as well as hosting the European Championships for children, juniors and young riders back in July, 2022 is being closed by the popular Autumn MET with nine weeks of shows between September and December. WoSJ made a quick stop at the Autumn MET I's second week to watch horses and riders compete under the Spanish sun. 

First out, Jerome Guery – who came straight from his victory with the Belgian team at the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ Final to compete, as well as to support his family and students.
