The horse comes to Paris for one weekend as the world’s best riders compete under the magnificent Beaux-Arts canopy of the Grand Palais in the prestigious Saut Hermès show jumping competition. An elegant and graceful event for horse enthusiasts.
Poetry and Motion
A few minutes from various Compagnie Hôtelière de Bagatelle hotels, between the Seine quays, Place de la Concorde and Avenue des Champs-Élysées, the Saut Hermès has been welcoming the world’s greatest riders to participate in its dazzling ballet for seven years. The event’s magic isn’t limited to the three-day competition. In show jumping circles, it’s associated with an original equestrian show created by Florient Azoulay and interpreted by Mario Luraschi and his equestrian troupe. The "Dream of Don Quixote" takes us to a land of fantasy and illusion in a stunning whirlwind of skill and grace.
An Essential Event
Le Saut Hermès recalls the original vocation of its creator, Thierry Hermès, a saddler and harness maker who arrived in Paris in 1837. The prestigious brand name is a byword for history, tradition and expertise and the equestrian competition is a programme of five-star events held over three days from 17th to 19th March. This year, a solo night time event is also planned. It’s advisable to reserve your seats in advance, whether you plan to go for a day or for the whole weekend. Finally, thanks to its ideal location in the heart of Paris, it is easy to combine a day at the Saut Hermès with a shopping spree in the Rue de Rivoli, a rural walk in the Tuileries Gardens or a visit to the Louvre.
From 17th to 19th March, the Grand Palais will host one of the world’s most prestigious equestrian competitions. Both seasoned riding enthusiasts and new visitors will enjoy memorable moments of equestrian mastery and grace.
