All the Majesty of Show Jumping in the Heart of Paris
Posted in Paris le
There's no need to wait for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games to realize that the city is a true sports capital. For a long time, the years have been punctuated by major events in various disciplines, from the Six Nations Tournament to Roland Garros, not forgetting the Paris Marathon, to name just the most publicized. The Saut Hermès, now in its 14th edition, is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious events. Coordinate your stay at the Auteuil Tour-Eiffel Hotel with this competition, which will take place from March 15 to 17, and discover its incomparable atmosphere...
An Excellence Competition
The Saut Hermès is a series of CSI5* level competitions, the highest level of difficulty in show jumping competitions. It brings together each year the most accomplished riders and horses of the moment. With its events reserved for riders under 25, it also offers great visibility to future champions of the discipline. Over three days, various competitions unfold, individually or in teams, timed or with obstacles of increasing height, culminating in the climax of the City of Paris Prize on Sunday morning and the Hermès Grand Prix in the afternoon.
On the Road to the Olympics
This year, there is no doubt that the competition will experience new excitement. Indeed, a few months before the Olympic Games, where the show jumping events will take place a few kilometers away, in the exceptional setting of the Palace of Versailles, the Saut Hermès will be a kind of rehearsal in real conditions. Riders and their horses can test themselves and get accustomed while captivating the Parisian audience, which will be eager to support them this summer. It will also be a great opportunity to introduce the discipline and democratize a sport that is still too often considered elitist.
Around the Competitions
The Saut Hermès is not limited to the competition events. Indeed, the prestigious sponsor Hermès has chosen to multiply animations to introduce the world of horses and its multiple facets. Thus, between the various competitions, you can attend breathtaking equestrian shows like "L'Allure d'une aventure" and dazzling demonstrations like "Trot and Roll" and "La Folie des tâches." Outside, the training paddock is accessible to the public, and various activities present different aspects of horsemanship. Enough to attract a new, novice audience!
This year again, the Saut Hermès sets up its obstacles at the Grand Palais Éphémère, combining grace, power, and mastery. A magnificent opportunity to discover the beauty and physical commitment of this sport. Quickly book your stay at the Auteuil Tour Eiffel Hotel around this weekend from March 15 to 17, 2024!
