INTERNATIONAL SHOW JUMPING
Widely acclaimed to be one of the most appreciated French winter resorts Megève is also a very popular summer destination. And if the summer events calendar fills out a little more each year, the Megève International Show Jumping has managed to establish itself, without pretension, as the highlight of the season.
Charmed and captivated by this equestrian world and the friendly and federating atmosphere, it is indeed the whole village that lives to the rhythm of the competitions and events for six days.
One of the keys to success for this major event that brings together over 500 horses and 350 riders of twenty or so different nationalities, from promising young amateurs to the most renowned professional title holders, such as
Nick Skelton, Laura Kraut, Natale Chiaudani, Carlos Lopez, Michel Robert and Simon Delestre, but also a generation of young champions in the image of Alexandra Paillot (FR), Julien Gonin (FR), Adrienne Strenlicht (US), Alexandre Fontanelle (FR) and Cyril Bouvard (FR).
However, to acquire this utopian status and gain the recognition of its peers in such a short time, the Show Jumping event also had to captivate and make itself attractive to a far-reaching audience.
Free admission, a magnificent and immaculate decor, festive ambiance and entertainment: a formula crowned with success as more than 25,000 visitors attend the event each year.
35 amateur and professional competitions over 7 days
