What a treat! Thank you to 🔷 @laetiducouedic 🔷 for sharing her view from the prestigious FEI five-star show jumping event,  Saut Hermès at the Grand Palais in Paris, a few weeks ago.

Six years ago, Hermès brought horses back to the heart of the French capital. For three days Paris comes alive under the great glass roof of the Grand Palais. On Friday 18th, Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th March 2016, the world show-jumping elite gathered to participate in a competition given 5-star status, the FEI’s highest classification.

These three days in the Grand Palais, which was designed back in 1900, for the Universal Exhibition, to host equestrian competitions, restore the premises to their original vocation: living to the rhythm of hoof-beats, in the warm-up arena and on the course itself and discovering other aspects of horsemanship by strolling through the gloriously decorated galleries. Here we find the saddlery workshop where Hermès craftsmen share their passion for their craft and their love of fine work.
