The most exciting weekend in Paris for equestrian sport is finally here!

The Saut Hermès, one of the world’s most beautiful and highly anticipated equestrian events, launches its 10th edition March 22nd.

Thanks to a fruitful history with its partner riders, GL events, and the Grand Palais in Paris, eager fans and participants are staged once again to gather beneath the glass roof of this iconic structure.

Over the March weekend, the Saut Hermès at the Grand Palais, a CSI 5* competition—the highest category classified by the Fédération Française d’équitation (FFE) and the Fédération équestre internationale (FEI)—brings together the world’s 50 best riders and 20 international promising riders who will compete at this magnificent venue.

Each day, a trial of the “Talents Hermès”, created in 2011 in a spirit of skills sharing that is so dear to Hermès, will see 20 international rising stars under the age of 25 compete against each other, and supported by riders on the CSI 5* circuit.

The Saut Hermès is also an opportunity to celebrate the horse, the “first customer” of the Parisian house. In addition to the competition, 16,000 visitors will be invited to discover an all-new show, as well as a number of joyful equestrian-themed activities in the galleries of the historic Parisian venue.

Take a look back and enjoy Equestrian Living’s past visits to this landmark event.
