Event presentation

First leg of the European n°1 Division of the “Longines FEI Jumping Nations CupTM” circuit, La Baule welcomes the top riders of showjumping from 13th to 16th May 2021 at the François André stadium.

Four days placed under the sign of excellence, when the best pairs in the world compete against each other to the greatest pleasure of the spectators. 

If the classes of Thursday 13th May allow the riders to get their bearing and start the spot counter for the world ranking, the first highlight is held on Friday 14th May, with the Longines FEI Jumping Nations CupTM of France (02.00pm), a unique team class in the country.  The best of the 8 nations on the start list will be crowned. With barely enough time to recover from our emotions, Saturday 15th May invites us to the legendary Derby of the Loire region (01.00pm); a spectacular class looking like cross country with its natural and traditional fences. The Derby of La Baule is the only class of its kind organized within a CSIO 5*.

Explosive finale of the show, the Longines Grand Prix of the City of La Baule (01.00pm) brings together 50 riders among the world elite of showjumping, with their best horses.  

On the sidelines of the CSIO 5* of La Baule, the CSI 1* is open to experienced amateur riders and horses in the making.

Prestigious classes, world stars of the discipline, the Longines International Jumping of La Baule guarantees great moments of sport and unforgettable memories.
