When Hermès inaugurated their first ever show jumping event in 2010 –  Le Saut Hermès – they couldn’t possibly have placed it any closer to the city  than they did.

Set in the beautiful Grand Palais next to the Champs-Elysées the horses have literally conquered the French capital, otherwise reserved for equestrian sculptures. For bypassers and spectators the four day event show the sport from a unique angle and Paris, too, as the horses go to work in the palace and spend their free time in their private quarters on les Champs… with their trucks parked on the Seine.
