The ninth Saut Hermès au Grand Palais will take place on 16, 17 and 18 March, 2018. In eight years, the Saut Hermès at the Grand Palais has become a popular sporting event, which brings the international show-jumping elite together in the heart of the French capital. The celebration has always been stunning and it will be so again this year.
Over the three-day event, the world’s greatest riders will come together in the heart of the Grand Palais to take part in these CSI 5* show jumping trials organized by Hermès. Reserved for the best riders in the world, as well as rising stars under the age of 25, the Saut Hermès is also a meeting place for the horse-riding world, with a succession of unique events and a special equestrian show. An evening event will take place on Saturday 17 March. Spectators will be able to watch a trial, the Prix du 24 Faubourg CSI 5*, enjoy various equestrian activities, and see an all-new show under the floodlit glass roof of the Grand Palais.
With the Saut Hermès, the Grand Palais continues to resonate with the excitement of horse trials that it has hosted since 1957. For the past eight years, this event has once again given horses and equestrian sport an arena in the heart of Paris. More than ever, the Saut Hermès at the Grand Palais is perpetuating the spirit of the famous harness and saddle-maker, which, by repeatedly outdoing itself and endlessly striving to amaze, has always made athletes’ challenges its own.
