MENTON - MEDITERRANEAN & ARAB COUNTRIES ARABIAN HORSE CHAMPIONSHIP 2019
Promenade du Soleil
Avenue Porte de France

|Organizer||Mrs. Christianne Chazel (A.P.C.A. - Christianne & Jean-Pierre Chazel)|
Arguably the most glamorous Arabian horse show on the circuit, Menton is home to the Mediterranean and Arab Countries Arabian Horse Championship. Held on the French Riviera, just a stone’s throw from Italy, Menton is the first major show of the European showing season. With the classes starting after lunch, allowing visitors plenty of time to explore this beautiful seaside town as well as enjoying the June sunshine, the Menton Show has much to offer visitors. However, it is not just about glamour – the horses that compete here tend to go on and vie for World Championship honours. It is here where old names make their triumphant return to the ring, while new legends are made. The beach truly is the place to be!
The First Day of the show was all about the Yearling and Junior Fillies & Colts classes. We experienced some very good performances and discovered what emotions some memories of the past years evoke within the people involved.
The Championship day started with the Mares and Stallions classes in the morning, and had the 4 Championships in the afternoon, with impressive performances and top-quality standards as well as a beautiful public setting. Enjoy our best highlights of the day!
