KING'S HORSE
When returning to Morocco for a holiday, he met the King and Princess of Morocco while jet skiing. The Princess was interested in his equestrian feats and, based on the chance meeting, the King bought Floresco. Rahmouni went on to compete with the horse at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. "By riding a good horse like Floresco I was able to qualify for London 2012. The 10 minutes I met the King of Morocco changed my life, and now I am able to write a bit of history." (NOS, 31 Jul 2012)
