As every year, the month of March marks the return of one of the most prestigious equestrian competitions in the world: the Saut Hermès. Reserved for the best riders on the circuit and the finest young riders, it takes place over three days at the Grand Palais Éphémère. A competition of rare elegance not to be missed during your stay at the Hôtel Albe Saint-Michel.
The most committed of competitions
The Saut Hermès unfolds in multiple events, classified CSI5* and open to different categories of riders, either individually or as a team. Each day, from Friday, March 15, to Sunday, March 17, 2024, several prizes are contested under the eyes of the spectators at the Grand Palais Éphémère. The Saut Hermès also highlights the new generation of riders with events reserved for those under 25. Agility, speed, mastery, commitment—every element matters in these competitions, with the most prestigious being the Hermès Grand Prix, a masterful conclusion to the three days of competition.
Around the Saut Hermès
The uniqueness of the Saut Hermès lies in combining sports competition with the exploration of the equestrian world. Thus, each day, between events, you can admire demonstrations and equestrian shows such as the enchanting "L'allure d'une aventure." This year, the Saut Hermès also takes over the Champs de Mars, providing the opportunity to observe riders training on the paddock, equestrian animations, and numerous activities for both children and adults. Check out the online program quickly and be sure to reserve your tickets promptly: seating is limited and in high demand.
