The Saut Hermès: The Equestrian Rendezvous in Paris
Posted in "Paris" le
As is customary each year around the same time, Paris turns its attention to showjumping events, hosting one of the most renowned competitions on the international circuit: the Saut Hermès. Under the auspices of the luxury Parisian leather goods brand, the finest athletes in the discipline will compete with their sights set on the Paris 2024 Olympics. Secure your seats for this unique rendezvous during your stay at the Hotel Queen Mary.
An Exceptional Setting
The Saut Hermès is not just a sports competition. Firstly, it takes place in a prestigious setting. Normally hosted under the magnificent glass roof of the Grand Palais, it now occupies the spaces of the Grand Palais Éphémère on the Champs de Mars, beneath the benevolent silhouette of the Eiffel Tower, during the renovations and closure of the usual venue. While competitions are at the heart of the event, they are interspersed with exciting activities showcasing all aspects of working with horses. There is no downtime, and both enthusiasts and newcomers find it engaging.
The Saut Hermès, Practical Information
From the Hotel Queen Mary, it will take you just over fifteen minutes by public transport to reach the Champs de Mars and the Grand Palais Éphémère. Tickets are already on sale on the event's website, providing access to all the day's activities. You can also opt for the Saturday evening session, allowing you to enjoy a day of shopping, sightseeing, or relaxation in Paris before an evening dedicated to horses. Finally, remember to book quickly, as tickets, especially for the Sunday's main event, the Grand Prix Hermès, are in high demand.
Make the most of your Parisian stay at the Hotel Queen Mary to discover or rediscover the beauty of showjumping. Join the Saut Hermès from March 15 to 17, 2024!
