Do you need an excuse to visit Paris this spring?

Perhaps this is the reason you have been waiting for. The Saut Hermès is one of the world’s most beautiful equestrian events.

Hermès announces the the 10th edition of the Saut Hermès. Thanks to a fruitful history with its partner riders, GL events, and the Grand Palais in Paris, eager fans and participants can once again gather beneath the glass roof of this iconic structure.

On March 22nd, 23rd and 24th 2019, 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)—will bring together the world’s 50 best riders and 20 international promising riders to 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, the 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.
