The Morocco Royal Tour’s 8th edition kicks off this week in Tétouan, as the first of three legs to come during the next month. The event is now a part of international showjumping’s major shows, offering a unique setting for top-level competition.

Gathering 20 nations, about 70 foreign and Moroccan riders as well as seeing almost 250 horses travelling from Europe and Morocco, the Morocco Royal Tour keeps escalating and confirms its worldwide reputation. Organized by the Royal Guard, the Royal Moroccan Federation for Equestrian Sports and the Association du Salon Du Cheval D’El Jadida, the Morocco Royal Tour offers a three-week circuit of international showjumping.

A CSI3*-W, a CSIO3*-W and a CSI1* are on the program with a total of 45 classes, among which 13 are counting for the FEI Longines Rankins and three World Cups. This circuit offers a global total prize money of 537 700 Euro for the CSI3*-W and 49 000 Euro for the CSI1*.

Belgium’s Jerome Guery, Switzerland’s Pius Schwizer, Egypt’s Karim El Zoghby, France’s Alexandra Paillot, Italy’s Emanuele Gaudiano as well as Qatar’s Bassem Hassan Mohammed and Sheik Ali Al Thani are all on the list for the event. Other great names of international showjumping include Simon Delestre, Nicolas Deseuzes, Romain Lavigne and Nadja Peter Steiner. Under Morocco’s colours, Abdelkebir Ouaddar will be the centre of attention. He will ride alongside his daughter, Soukaina, and other local riders who begin to make a name on the international scene like Samy Colma, Amine Lyazidi or Leina Benkhraba.

Two of the highlights during these three weeks is the Nations Cup of Rabat, and also during the third and last leg of El Jadida, the 10th edition of the Salon du Cheval under the theme “The Salon du Cheval: Ten years of pride and passion.”
