    ANCCE has renewed its collaboration agreement with IBERIA, thanks to which the airlines offers SICAB participants and guests a 10% discount on all available flights when the final destination is Sevilla or Madrid. In virtue of this agreement, this discount is applicable to those who purchase their tickets on the IBERIA web site.
    Once you have selected the return flight fee, click on the section “Tengo un código promocional” (I have a promotional code), and type in the discount code SICAB2018 (in caps). Remember that this discount is valid both five (5) days before and after the actual dates for SICAB.
    This special offer is exclusively for flights with the carriers IBERIA, IBERIA Express and IBERIA Air Nostrum. It does not include shuttle flights. This promotion cannot be combined with other discounts.


    Likewise, if you are travelling by train, RENFE offers a 30% discount on all tickets—whether a round trip or single ticket—originating in or whose final destination is the city of Sevilla. This promotion is valid from the 11th to the 20th of November 2018. If you are interested in the offer, send an email to ancce@ancce.com requesting the “Discount Authorization”. Be sure to include the full name of the person who will be using the ticket.

    SICAB edits its own Official Catalog, where you may advertise your stud farm or business. It is a very useful informative and advertising tool for people visiting the event. 5,000 copies are published, which are handed out free of charge to breeders and international visitors; throughout the year, it is also distributed at national and international fairs and trade shows where ANCCE has a stand. Likewise, a full digital version is available online and that is seen by 10,000 people. The deadline to request an advertising insert and send in originals is October the 30th. Included herein is the request form with the fees and rates for both breeders who are members of ANCCE and those who are not.

    Conformation entries
    This year at SICAB 2018, Conformation Entries MUST be presented using the online entry system, which is accessible from the Private Zone on the PRE Stud Book web site. Payment may be made through the web site, either as a bank transfer or in cash. By accessing the Private Zone using your user name and password, go to the section “Request Forms” where you will see the option “SICAB 2018 Entry Form”. Once you access, stud farm data appears automatically, as well as invoicing information, a list of all horses registered with the PRE Stud Book and all relative information so that all you have to do is click to select those horses that will be participating in SICAB, in addition to the option to reserve a stall or shed as a tack-room. The field for “Representative” is editable and may be modified as need be. The Observations box allows you to include any relevant information; for example, the names of horses that are not yet yours but that you wish to present, etc.

    Breeders may select whether they want their mares participating in the Conformation or Exhibition Competition to have a stall or a pen. The number of stalls is limited; thus, if you are interested, please check the corresponding box on the entry form. Requests will be attended on a first-come-first-serve basis, with Full-fledged members having preference until all stalls/pens are occupied.

    This year, in the marquee dedicated exclusively to mares and in the exterior boxes, there will be a specifically reserved area dedicated to horses for sale, which will be properly indicated. Please take note that these horses will not be together with the rest of the horses from your stud farm unless they are marked as horses for sale. If you wish for your horses to be in this area, you must indicate it in the Observations box.

    Entries are considered final once they have been paid in full. Once paid, said payment will not be returned or reimbursed under any circumstance; the organizers foresee contracting needs with suppliers using the number of horses entered as the reference.

    Should you be interested in reserving a stall as a tack-room, the fee is €200 for Full-fledged members and €300 for all other participants. Occupancy is subject to availability. The organizers are not responsible for theft.

    To safeguard against incidents, fully closed and locked tack-rooms are available (construction sheds). The rental fee is €400 for Full-fledged members and €500 for all other participants. As of this year, and given the damage to sheds at previous editions, a €150 security deposit will be charged, which is not included in the contracting fee. This amount will be returned once the keys are returned and the shed is in the same condition as when it was initially turned over. The deposit will be returned the week after SICAB. Nevertheless, should damages exceed the €150 deposit, an invoice covering the damages will be presented by the firm providing the service.

    ANCCE is not responsible for theft in stands, breeder boxes, tack-rooms, etc.… As of Sunday, the 18th of November when SICAB closes its gates, you are recommended to keep all belongings secured.

    ANCCE Cup entries:
    Although there is an online entry system for horses participating at SICAB 2018, which is accessible from the Private Zone on the PRE Stud Book web site, you may also enter a horse using the traditional entry form.

    Arrival and Entry of Horse:
    This year, horse participating in Conformation, Exhibition and Dressage competitions will be accepted ONLY from Sunday the 11th to Monday the 12th of November. Access for all other ANCCE Cup participants will announced in future newsletters.

    Remember that to enter a horse, reserve a stand, receive breeder documentation or participate in SICAB 2018 in any way, you must be in good standing with all payments and economic obligations with ANCCE.

    As of this edition, the organizers do not have life insurance for horses. Please take note of this fact to take the necessary measures.

    Liability Insurance:

    By law, all horses entered for SICAB 2018 must have liability insurance. A copy of the insurance policy must be sent before November 6th via email to rolivares@ancce.com

    ANCCE has an agreement with Helvetia Insurance to provide a group policy insurance thorough the Association. The price is 10 euros (€10) per horse. If you wish to contract this insurance policy, please fill out this form with all of the information regarding the horses you wish to insure. The sum must be paid by bank transfer to the account with IBAN number: ES22 3187 0812 8010 9498 7227.


    Those horses participating in competitions whether members of the Equestrian Federation or are covered by Equestrian Federation insurance, the current license must be provided.
