The last few days here in Morocco have been a whirlwind. We are based at the most stunning facility in Marrakesh, with on-site bungalows and a large swimming pool overlooking the mountain plains and arena, so riders and supporters can truly relax in this unique setting. The riders have had to adapt to new horses in every training session, with daily coaching from world renowned French course designer Michel Ismalun and myself.
Yesterday afternoon we had a chance to explore
the World heritage medina of Marrakech, the most historic and most visited district of the city. Beautifully surrounded by walls, forming several gateways, it is the beating heart of the "ochre" city with everything from bazaars, spice markets, souks, Riads and cafe terraces.
The day wrapped up with the most amazing dinner and show at Chez Ali, a unique setting where we were lucky enough to walk through the cave of Ali Baba and experience authentic flavours of the local cuisine through typical specialties, accompanied by the festive atmosphere of the Arab-Muslim world! 🇲🇦
