« Horses have made me the man I am
and taught me humility, love and respect »
Sadek El Bahjaoui's words perfectly summarize
the unbreakable bonds woven over the years
between this artist-rider and his companions of
This magic, invisible yet perceptible link between Sadek and his equine partners is above all a matter of intuition, a communion with his accomplices. Sadek the Horseman has been travelling the world for years now and performing exceptional equestrian tableaux of poetry and elegance.
This fusion evident in equestrian performances by Sadek, Princess Sabah, Chenel, Fado and Khumba, is the result of a long career which started when Sadek became passionate about riding early on in his childhood.
Sadek, the child prodigy
Sadek's love of horses goes back as far as his
memories carry him. At 6 this child born in
Marrakesh was already attending technical
training at the Academy of Equestrian Art of
Morocco, Ouirgane, in the Atlas Mountains. For
three years, he followed, rigorously, an
apprenticeship to vaulting, dressage,
groundwork and acrobatics with his older
brothers. A rigour rewarded when, aged 9, he
joined the Fratellini circus in Paris for his first
tour as a young artist.
A childhood punctuated by years of training, learning, rigor and perseverance which seem to have served him well in preparing him for the meeting that would change his life.
