The CSI Maeza will host for the first time an international category competition in its facilities, and aims to become more than a sports tournament, an experience of entertainment and enjoyment in the Cider region during the summer season.

Preparations are already in progress to host in less than a month the first edition of the CSI Maeza, which will take place in the magnificent facilities of Yeguada Finca Maeza from July 2 to 4 and July 9 to 11.

After a complicated year due to the consequences of covid-19, the first level competition is reactivated in the north of Spain with the return of the CSI Santander and then two consecutive CSI in Yeguada Finca Maeza. In both cases the public will have the doors open to attend the events and experience the thrill of the sport live, always following the strictest health and safety protocols.

The CSI Maeza will hold for the first time in its facilities a competition of international category and aspires to become something more than a sports tournament, an experience of entertainment and enjoyment in the region of the Cider during the summer season.

The official hotel of the competition will be the Eurostars Hotel de la Reconquista, which occupies an 18th century building declared National Monument in the historic center of Oviedo. During the week of rest between competitions, Maeza proposes the "Maeza Experience", a series of plans to get to know the region and enjoy the environment and its local gastronomy. Visits to an Asturian llagar, visits to a local cheese factory or a traditional meal are some of the proposals that the "Maeza Experience" has prepared for its riders and companions.

In terms of sport, the CSI Maeza will consist of two weeks of two-star international competition. A total of €121,500 in prize money will be distributed in 18 classes, three of which will count towards the Longines FEI Ranking.

The first week, scheduled from July 2nd to 4th, will gather around 100 riders and 200 horses that will compete for more than €50,000 in prize money distributed among the 9 competitions with heights ranging from 1.25m to 1.45m and a Grand Prix that will count towards the Longines FEI Ranking.

Then, from July 9th to 11th, the competition will continue at the Maeza facilities. On this occasion, the program will include two qualifying events for the Longines FEI ranking and a prize purse amounting to 71,000 €.
