The highlight of the second stage of the Morocco Royal Tour 2023 in Rabat was the concluding CSIO4*-W 1.55m Nations Cup presented by Ministere de l'education Nationale, Pre-Scolaire et des Sports on Sunday. Taking their second victory since the Nations Cup was first staged in Rabat in 2016, it was the Belgian team that came out on top ahead of the Swiss in second and the French in third. 

With this photo special, we look back at the Nations Cup and first out is the winning team – Cyril Cools, Marine Scauflaire, Virginie Thonon and Jerome Guery, led by Chef d'Equipe Fabienne Daigneux-Lange.
