SICAB 2011 in Seville
The Salón Internacional Caballo de Pura Raza Española (SICAB) or International Horse Show is the only fair of its kind and is held in Seville. It is entirely dedicated to Spanish Purebred horses (PRE), is the most important single-theme trade fair in the world and brings together the largest number of this breed of horses in one equestrian event.
The Seville International Horse Show will be held from the 22nd to the 27th of November 2011, and will gather thousands of horse breeders, professionals, specialists and fans of this prominent pureblood horse.
Spanish Purebred horses are also known as Andalusian horses and consist of the oldest breed of horses in the world. They are harmoniously proportioned, elegant and extremely intelligent animals, therefore ideal saddle horses and perfect for different kinds of training, making them one of the most internationally cherished horse breeds in the world.
SICAB also features a range of parallel events including show jumping, competitions, the national livestock breeders’ championship, classic and country dressage, exhibitions and shows held in the evening and an equine conference. Meetings and technical conferences will also be held on specific themes directed mainly at specialists in the field.
New in for this year’s International Horse Show 2011 is guest country Argentina, a country with a longstanding breeding tradition who will occupy one of the best stands in the show. As well as getting the opportunity to enjoy roasts and other typical Argentinean products, visitors will be able to see a group of “gauchos” (loose equivalent to a North American cowboy) during the show daytime exhibitions with more than 20 criollo horses.
SICAB will be held a week prior to the Davis Cup Final 2011 between Spain and Argentina, more than enough reason to make a trip to Seville. In addition, the Spanish Tennis Federation and the SICAB organisers are in contact and if possible, will organise a visit of the players from both teams.
If you are a fan of equestrian sports or the world of horses then this is the perfect time for you to visit Seville.
