The 2017 Salon du Cheval d'El Jadida Morocco by Scott Bailey
Under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, May God Assist Him, the 10th edition of Le Salon du Cheval d’El Jadida was organized from 16th to 22nd of October. The Arabian show was just 2 days but was a wonderful event with horses from many countries, including Morocco, France and Qatar to name a few.
The theme “Le Salon du Cheval, 10 years of pride and passion” gives an idea of the directions of the 2017 edition and reflects the permanent commitment of all involved to continue the rise of the equine sector in this wonderful country.
The high-level program includes an International Arabian Horse Show featuring world-class horses, the International Barb-Horse Championship, a unique competition in the world where Barb horses from the Maghreb and Europe compete, and the International show jumping CSI 3 *W qualifying Grand Prix for the World Cup, Africa and Middle East area and representing the 3rd round of the Morocco Royal Tour.
The team at Arabhorse.com of Lisa Abraham and Scott Bailey was there to cover the event. Here are a few photos from Scott Bailey from the show and city, and results from the championships.
