48 hours of breathtaking jump action
A typical Parisian autumnal sportive event, it is ideal for spending a friendly and relaxing moment with family or friends. The International Jumping Weekend links racing with art, thanks to a village animated by painters, sculptors, photographers, young artists or renowned talents, who invite you to share in the uniqueness of horse racing.
The International Jumping Weekend is one of the most important events in the French jump racing calendar, as it discerns the best jump horses in each of the different categories of the sport and crowns those great intergenerational champions, thoroughbreds or AQPS (French Half Breds) that make our hearts beat faster.
A true sporting festival, the International Jumping Weekend was created in 2005 to emphasize the athletic and spectacular aspect of this sport and to give recognition to those regions that are rich in equine traditions and values.
This autumn meeting, with the Grade 1 Prix La Haye Jousselin as a highlight, allows horses that made a big impression during the Spring Meeting and the Gras Savoye Grand Steeple-Chase de Paris, to confirm and strengthen their claim of being part of the worldwide jumping elite.
The International Jumping Weekend attracts the best 3, 4 and five-year-old horses, as well as the older generation. There are eight hurdle courses and seven Steeple Chase courses. Offering nearly 2.4 Million Euros in prize-money, this event is not only a showcase for the sport, but has its rightful place at the top of the list in terms of prize-money.
Thanks to an exceptional card, including four Grade 1 races: Le Grand Prix d’Automne, le Prix Maurice Gillois, le Prix Cambacérès and the 126th Prix La Haye Jousselin, this fabulous festival of jump racing is the direct result of a season that is always rich in exploits and success.
Between each race there are a number of free activities for children, like pony riding, Mary-go-round or a guided tour for families who wish to discover the fences up close and personal. There are also play areas, as well as art and food courts for children.
