Morocco's Remarkable Participation in Royal Windsor Horse Show in London

Following the invitation addressed by the Royal Windsor Horse Show to the Kingdom of Morocco to the 80th edition of this flagship equestrian event, His Majesty King Mohammed VI, may God assist Him, has given His High Instructions for the Kingdom to be represented there, through the participation of a mixed team composed of riders of the Royal Guard and the Royal Armed Forces cavalry.

During this edition, which was held from Thursday to Sunday, the Kingdom has made a remarkable entry with the participation, for the first time, of a team of Moroccan riders in the jumping event. They distinguished themselves by reaching the final stages of the competition to occupy the 3rd place in the team ranking.

During the event, a special welcome was reserved for the Kingdom of Morocco. The Moroccan delegation led by Major General Abdelaziz Chatar, Commander of the Royal Guard, accompanied by the Moroccan Ambassador to the United Kingdom Hakim Hajoui, was the guest of honor of the Duke of Edinburgh, President of the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

The Duke of Edinburgh has warmly thanked His Majesty King Mohammed VI for Morocco's participation in this edition rich in symbols and which comes a few days after the coronation of King Charles III. Major General Abdelaziz Chatar, for his part, stressed the strong ties between the two illustrious Royal families and praised the exemplary organization of the event.

This participation was also an opportunity to highlight the centuries-old equestrian tradition of the Kingdom of Morocco, through the projection of an institutional film on the giant screens of the main arena of the Royal Windsor Horse Show before several thousand spectators.

The Royal Windsor Horse Show is a horse show held annually since 1943 for five days in Windsor. It is the only horse show in the United Kingdom to host international competitions in dressage, show jumping, driving and endurance riding.
