French luxury brand Hermès is set to host the fourteenth edition of the Saut Hermès, the brand’s annual show jumping competition that has been gracing the Grand Palais since 2010.
Scheduled to unfold from March 16 to 18, 2024, Hermès will bring together over 75 riders from 20 different countries and more than 130 horses at the Grand Palais Éphémère. The competition itself is set to feature 55 riders competing in the prestigious CSI 5 category, a classification of the highest order recognized by both the French Equestrian Federation (FFE) and the International Equestrian Federation (FEI).
Additionally, 20 promising young talents will showcase their skills in the Talents Hermès events dedicated to the under-25 age group, navigating courses designed by Santiago Varela Ullastres.
Beyond the competition, the public is invited to discover demonstrations of the house’s saddlery know-how, explore an equestrian bookshop, and engage in family-friendly activities centered around the world of the horse.
The experience will extend to the Champ-de-Mars, where the younger audience can ride ponies and partake in grooming activities. The house has also collaborated with the company ‘I Could Never Be A Dancer’ to present an original equestrian show.
Hermès, renowned for its excellence in saddle craftsmanship, takes immense pride in uniting members of the equestrian community, honoring its legacy as the first customer— the horse.
As the new year unfolds, the global spotlight on equestrian excellence is expected to intensify, with the impending Olympics and a celebration of equestrian prowess. In particular, the equestrian events at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris are scheduled to run from 27 July to 6 August at the Palace of Versailles, and are expected to feature 200 riders across three disciplines.
