About us


Karim Fares was born on October 26, 1969 in Beirut, Lebanon. Since he was a child, he has been integrated in the horse world and after having obtained his French baccalaureate and finished his university studies he decided that his passion for the horse will become his profession.

The meeting with the rider and Dutch dealer Jan Broek will allow him to ride in the Netherlands and integrate little by little as a rider. Commuting by sharing his time between Lebanon where he managed his equestrian structure, and his stays in the Netherlands to train and ride on horse shows, Karim Fares finally took up residence in 2012 in a small village in the North of Holland , Veeningen, settling in his stables of Cedar Farm, in reference to the cedars of Lebanon, emblem of the Lebanese flag.

Juggling horse trading and show jumping, Karim Fares represents  Lebanon on the international level, and has been qualified at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in 2010 and most recently at Tryon where he plans to represent his country.
