Cancelled last year following the Covid crisis, the 10th edition of the Internationaux de Dressage of Compiègne will take place from 27 to 30 May 2021, behind closed doors.
As the health situation is still fragile, the competition will unfortunately take place without an audience and all measures will be taken to ensure the safety of all, including the obligation for all persons present on the site (riders, trainers, judges, volunteers, organisers, press, etc.) to present a negative PCR test. ” Like other sports such as football, for example, the current situation requires us to introduce a closed-door policy, confided Monique Marini, President of the Compiègne Equestre Association, which organises the event. Obviously, a 10th edition without an audience is not the celebration we had imagined… But with the Olympic Games in sight, and the near absence of competitions for nearly a year, it was very important for us to do everything possible to allow the best couples in the world to compete just a few weeks before Tokyo. We obviously remain very attentive to the evolution of the health situation and hope to be able to welcome a maximum of foreign riders, faithful friends of the Internationaux de Dressage of Compiègne. ”

” 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! ”
