I am delighted to be returning to Paris and to this iconic location by the Eiffel Tower.
It is a great pleasure that this breathtaking setting for top-level show jumping is part of our 15-event calendar this season. We are anticipating another spectacular edition here in the "City of Lights" with a thrilling combination world class sport, culture and entertainment.
I especially want to thank our partners Longines and Paris Eiffel Jumping, the Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo and the Mayor of the 7th arrondissement Rachida Dati for all their support for this tremendous event.
Once again the public will be welcomed with free access and we hope many fans of show jumping and those new to the sport enjoy a great weekend here in Paris.
