The enchanting two-day Arabian horse show, the Global Champions Arabians Tour, concluded with an extraordinary closing ceremony at Cannes’ Stade des Hesperides. Against the backdrop of the glistening Mediterranean and the timeless allure of Cannes, this prestigious event celebrated the majesty and elegance of Arabian horses, captivating enthusiasts and spectators from around the globe.

The Global Champions Arabians Tour (GCAT), renowned for celebrating Arabian excellence, made a grand stop in Cannes as part of its international journey. This year’s event drew together top breeders, trainers, and handlers who showcased the remarkable breed to a new and engaged audience, along with dedicated followers of the Tour.

The closing ceremony was a breath-taking spectacle, featuring an intricate display of horsemanship and cultural performances that paid homage to France’s rich culture through art, music and film. Highlights included a stunning display of synchronised riding, fireworks, and an enchanting rendition of Edith Piaf’s La Vie En Rose.

“The Global Champions Arabians Tour in Cannes has been an extraordinary success, thanks to the exceptional quality of participants and the captivating cultural elements that enriched the experience,” said Faleh Al-Nasr, Chairman of GCAT. “We are proud to have hosted such a remarkable celebration of Arabian horses in this beautiful city, and we look forward to continuing our tour with the same spirit and enthusiasm.

“We would like to thank Global Partners, Qatar Airways, Doha Bank and Old Doha Port, along with Institutional Partner Ville Cannes and Broadcast Partner Alkass, who have been instrumental in the success of the Tour,” continued Faleh.
