La Baule is all yours !

For four days, La Baule will be all yours during the Longines International Jumping, to choose among the best riders in presence, the stars of the 2019 edition. 

Sport above all
This year, each of the 8 classes of the CSIO5* counts for the world Longines Rankings, among which the mythical Longines FEI Jumping Nations CupTM (Friday), the Derby of the Pays de la Loire region (Saturday), and the Longines Grand Prix of the City of La Baule (Sunday). The CSI1* promises to offer great moments of sport as well. To the riders, grooms, owners and horses, we wish good luck: this show is yours !  

A unique public
For you to fully enjoy the event, the access to the show is always free. In the world, there is no other international equestrian competition at this level, open for free to the public.
You will be more than 40 000 to come, attentive, respectful, passionate, to the François André stadium. For 15 million people, always more and more, who could not come, it will be possible to follow the competition on television and live on Internet.

A living place
t is the central point of the show, managed by our not profit association. After one year of rooting, the grass arena of La Baule will demand strategies from the riders according to the weather forecast, time keeping, turns and of course height of the fences… including the difficulties posed by the course designer ! And now, play on !

In the backstage of this event
The International Equestrian Federation, the French Equestrian Federation, the City of La Baule, the Pays de la Loire region, the Loire-Atlantique department…To the faithful institutional and private sponsors of the Jumping, to the permanent teams and volunteers who give their best to make this show a unique « Rendez-vous » of horse riding, thank you !

We are pleased to welcome the Secours Populaire Français who supports the most destitute in France, and JustWorld International who helps children all around the world. Think of them !

For this annual rendez-vous, may everybody join me to say: La Baule is all yours !
