Haras Régional

Haras Régional Review

Purebred Arabian and Berber horses and fine hybrids are treated like royalty at this 165-acre equestrian breeding and training farm used for Morocco's military until 1947. Under the direction of the Ministry of Agriculture, nearly 300 horses are identified by plaques on their stable walls: red for Arabians; green for Berber stallions and mares; and red and green for hybrids. The ratio of the two colors indicates their exact percentages in the horse's bloodline. Manicured pastures, multiple dressage and jumping quarters, and a 30-acre hippodrome showcase these spectacular "horses of the Maghreb"—the other regional equine centers are located in Rabat and Casablanca. Guided horseback outings can be arranged here.
