For this kick-off in El Jadida of the Longines FEI World Ranking classes, a Faults and Time course, the Swiss course designer Gérard Lachat, built a technical and tricky course. But that didn’t matter for New Zealand’s Tom Tarver-Priebe who today recorded his first victory in the Morocco Royal Tour 2023 held in El Jadida during the Salon du Chevalier d’El Jadida.

The futurity season is in full swing for the reining industry. With many impressive shows featuring record-setting payouts, many reiners are achieving success and climbing milestones at an astounding rate. Among that group is NRHA Hall of Famer Spooks Gotta Whiz—the newest NRHA Six Million Dollar Sire.

After two magnificent stops in Tetouan and Rabat, the Morocco Royal Tour 2023 resumes today (Thursday 19 October) in El Jadida in indoor as part of the Salon du Cheval D'el Jadida.

The second leg of the Morocco Royal Tour closed with the highlight of the event — the Nations Cup — where a young team from Belgium jumped to the highest step of the podium making it the second Belgian victory since the inception of the MRT in 2016. The podium saw Switzerland and France occupy the second and third steps of the podium respectively.

When most picture New York, they think of big city lights and a bustling urban landscape. Few, however, know of the beautiful countryside native to places such as Campbell Hall—the location of Santa Hill Ranch. A training, breeding, and boarding facility, the picturesque Santa Hill Ranch is owned by Robert ‘Bob’ Santagata—the newest NRHA Two Million Dollar Owner.

Italy's Emanuele Gaudiano, one of Morocco Royal Tour's most loyal riders, has won a respectable number of classes in Tetouan over the last ten years (as last Thursday and Friday with Jaja), but he has never won the Grand Prix. This is now the case, thanks to his powerful 10-year-old Belgian stallion Nikolaj de Music.

It's a double two-peat for Simon Delestre who won the same Prix de Dakhla last year and who repeated this victory on Saturday evening in Tetouan with Olga van de Kruishoeve, the mare with whom he triumphed yesterday in the Prix de La Marche Verte.

MILL SPRING, N.C. (October 7, 2023) – After three days of competition at the inaugural Rodeo Carolina, the richest rodeo event east of the Mississippi, the WCRA (World Champions Rodeo Alliance) has announced the final list of athletes who will compete in the Triple Crown of Rodeo Round on October 8 at Tryon International Equestrian Center & Resort in Mill Spring, North Carolina.

The Morocco Royal Tour Prix de la Marche Verte, a qualifier for Sunday’s World Cup Grand Prix, saw world number 10, Simone Delestre of France, take the win riding Olga van de Kruishoeve.
Thirty-nine riders were on the starting grid, but only two of them - including the team bronze medalist at the last European Championships, Austrian Katharina Rhomberg, who unfortunately had a small problem of understanding with Colestus Cambridge - were unable to take part in Sunday's Grand Prix.
