Normandy, France – October 24 – 27, 2013
SPORT AND BREEDING; TWO EVENTS IN ONE!
The traditional International Show Jumping of Saint Lô in Normandy, France will be this year matched with the French National Selle Français Stallions Championships to make one of the most important events for sport horses in France. Only Saint Lô will host the three- star jumping in Normandy this year, just one week before the major event of Equita' Lyon CSI-5*....a perfect way for top international riders to prepare their horses for the indoor season.
TWO INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS:
Saint Lô will welcome two show jumping events: a one-star event (one horse per rider, 50 riders accepted), and a three-star event (three horses per rider). There will be three classes counting for the Longines FEI World Rankings, all in the CSI-3*: a first one on Friday afternoon (n°3) and one on Saturday afternoon (n°6), both qualifying for the Sunday Grand Prix (n°9). The six-bar competition (puissance class) will take place on Friday evening this year.
THE BEST SELLE FRANÇAIS HORSES:
The Selle Français stud book, currently first in the world (thanks to CF Myrtille Paulois) and third (by stud book), organises its National Championships for two and three-year-old males on Thursday and Friday. There will be two new competitions dedicated to Selle Français horses: the L'Eperon Masters for Selle Français Stallions from four to seven-year-olds (in two rounds on Friday and Saturday), and the Masters Elite Selle Français (on Saturday evening). This last class will gather the 15 best Selle Français horses of eight-year-olds and above to participate in the show and compete for 20,000€.
NEW EQUIPMENT AND NEW GROUND:
The local authorities financed the complete renovation of the equestrian complex of Saint Lô. After the covered stables four years ago, horses and riders will benefit from a covered area from warm-up to show-arena, a new lounging arena aside to the warm-up, and above all, a brand new sand ground in the indoor arena, built by the French specialist Toubin & Clement. Best equipment for top sport, that's what Normandy can do at least to welcome the best horses and riders!
