” First there was the forest at Compiègne. The hunt satisfying our sovereigns since the Merovingians… Riders know the surface of the forest is like no other, so it’s not surprising that every equestrian discipline has put their roots down here.

Over the last ten years the revelation has been Dressage. Today the 5 star CDIO is one of only four organised annually in the World. If a competition of this level can take place, it’s thanks to the  own’s investment in the “Stade Équestre du Grand Parc”. But not only, it’s also due to our other corporate and private partners. I’d like to encourage them to support us again, and to even increase their backing.

I hope that this international and elegant event will be the centre of wide media coverage. You’ll see the very best in this sport. And you’ll tell others that dressage is a work of art surrounded by nature! ”
