The Grand Prix Freestyle will mark the highlight of the CDI 3* and CDI 4* being reserved for the 15 most competitive couples of the CDI 3* Grand Prix and the 10 best of the CDI Grand Prix. 4*.
Raphaël Saleh, 5* international judge, will chair the jury of this 2022 competition, composed of ten international judges. Installed around the arena, each of these experts will evaluate the precision, the sequence of figures throughout the tests and the harmony and elegance of the couples.
A special welcome
As a major event in the international dressage calendar, the horses, riders, grooms and owners are the focus of the Organising Committee’s attention. Contributing to the success of the event, the spectators are never forgotten. This year, new infrastructures await the public, as well as a brand-new exhibitors’ village, surprise animations, a new tombola and, as always, the entrance of show remains free access.
