The Mediterranean Equestrian Tour is delighted to welcome some of the best riders in the world to the Autumn MET 2018 in Oliva Nova, Spain as the annual event kicks off on Tuesday 2nd of October. 

This year's Autumn MET runs in two parts, the first from October 2nd to 14 and the second from October 23rd to November 11th. CSI2*, CSI1* and CSIYH competitions are on the program, with a total of fifteen Longines Ranking classes and 674,400 Euro in prize money overall.

Some of the world's best riders have chosen to extened their outdoor season at the Autumn MET. Former world no. one and Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping title-holder Scott Brash (GBR) returns to Oliva, and he gets company from his compatriot Ben Maher (GBR) who won this year's Longines Global Champions Tour overall after a fantastic season scoring multiple Grand Prix wins. Historic triple World Cup Champion Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum (GER) is also coming, together with her husband Markus Beerbaum (GER) who is a returning guest. Other big names include Pedro Veniss (BRA), Julien Epaillard (FRA) and Danielle Goldstein (ISR) – all previous competitors at the MET.

“We are going to Oliva as it is a good show for our entire stable, and for a variety of horses. Although it is late in the season it is still outdoors and offers good opportunities for young horses as well as older ones who had a break. The stables and rings, with different footings – grass and sand – offer great conditions,” Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum says. 

“Our riders Gaj Riossa and Rene Dittmer bring some of our younger horses. We also bring Calle and Luke – who both didn’t show since Münster, Daisy – that is coming back after a six month break, as well as La Caramba who is stepping up and we are hoping she does her first Grand Prix in Oliva, just as Carlito’s Way. We also bring Charmed to do some rounds,” Michaels-Beerbaum continues. 

“Our daughter Brianne will also come with her two ponies since she has autumn break at school, so we’re hoping for good weather so she can ride in the warm-up ring and at the beach as well,” Michaels-Beerbaum says about her family's trip to Oliva.

"We are very happy to yet again be welcoming some of the world's best riders to the Mediterranean Equestrian Tour," Event Director Bettina Pöhls says. "We are proud to have riders of this calibre returning year after year to our event, it feels like a real compliment to the MET. We look forward to five weeks of top sport, and hope our guests will have a fantastic time here in sunny Oliva."
