“Almonteño, the horse that went to SICAB” artwork by Francisco Gil Moreno, was chosen to announce the 33rd edition of this equestrian event, to be held from the 28th of November until the 3rd of December at the FIBES Convention Center in Sevilla, Spain.The Royal Purebred Spanish Horse Breeders’ Association (ANCCE) is currently preparing the 33rd edition of the International PRE Horse Trade Fair, SICAB 2023, including the World Purebred Spanish Horse Championship. These events will be held from the 28th of November to the 3rd of December at the FIBES Convention Center. This 33rd edition was announced by presenting the official poster in the “Salon Colon” of Sevilla’s City Hall. Carlos Garcia Lara, Alderman for Major Events, presented the event, together with Diego Ramos Sanchez, General Coordinator of Governance and Major Events and the President of ANCCE, Jose Juan Morales, in addition to the artist from Almonte, Francisco Gil Moreno.
For the Deputy Mayor and General Coordinator of Governance and Major Events, Juan Carlos Cabrera, SICAB is one of the city’s most important events in terms of its economic impact. For this very reason, ANCCE, as the organizers of the event, once again count on City Hall backing. In addition to being a world-class showcase for Purebred Spanish Horses, the event is based on culture, tradition and craftsmanship.Once again, the President of ANCCE expressed his appreciation towards the Sevilla City Hall and the commitment of both organizations to change the dates due to the Latin Grammy Awards to be held at the same venue in November. He commented that “this motivates an accelerated set up and establishment, but we are working to make SICAB 2023 a triumphant success on the international equestrian and Sevilla’s social calendar”.
Poster artist Francisco Gil Moreno titled his work “Almonteño, the horse that went to SICAB”. Using pen on paper, this is the second consecutive year that Gil authors the SICAB poster. The story behind the poster is unique. “When I was young, I was gifted a PRE colt named “Almonteño”. That colt was my very first horse. I recall that he was in my stables for years; he continued to grow with an impressive conformation until he became the perfect PRE Horse. Life moved on; our pathways separated, so we have never seen each other again…..until today. His image has always been alive in my mind. So, I imagined what he would be like today. This is the result. I have brought it to SICAB as best I know, which is to draw it,” Gil explained.
