A 5* International Show Jumping competition at the Palace of Versailles, is a little bit like the Loch Ness monster: everyone talked about it but no one ever saw it.

A favourable turn of events combined with the image conveyed by our Chantilly competition, allowed me to open the gates of the Palace and to make an attractive organisational proposition to the administrators of this world-famous institution.

After many months of study and research the dream has become reality.

Soon you will be able to witness the world’s show jumping elite make their entrance for your pleasure in the courtyard of the Great Royal Stables.

We would like to thank the partners who helped us to realise this dream, and also to thank Bartabas for agreeing to modify his organisation so that we can propose these three days of great sport to you.

And now : « LET THE FESTIVITIES BEGIN ! »
