This past weekend in Paris, the Saut Hermès international show jumping competition took place at the Grand Palais. Imagine the stunning setting of the glass domed Grand Palais, all decked out by Hermès, filled with majestic horses and world class riders. The pictures tell the story better than I ever could…

Sandy we saw the posters for this all over Paris and missed it by a day. I would have so loved to go – and wanted to swipe one of the posters and bring it home with me – they were gorgeous. Thanks for the photos – next best thing to being there! Happy Monday! XOXO

Even the gates and jumps are gorgeous! This is one event we would have loved to have attended when we lived in Paris – such a beautiful sport where rider and horse come together as one. Thanks for sharing, Sandy!

I had no idea this beautiful competition went on! But, as usual…everything in Paris is just more. More elegant. More visual. More!
Hope your week is off to a beautiful start!
Everything in Paris is so beautiful and the international show competition is no exception. How amazing is the poster?! Happy Wednesday!

Sandy, how dramatic! I believe that the horse is the most majestic of animals in the kingdom!
These images are so evocative and engrossing! Thank you for sharing!

Sandy this is indeed a fabulous event. I have had the pleasure of attending several jumping events in Paris over the years.
I might add that everything Hermes does is fabulous!
I hope that you are having a great week! Someday soon I hope that we can meet up in one of the places we have in common.
Such majestic animals! And what a gorgeous setting! Glamor and grandeur, just as you would expect from an event in Paris! Toto, we are not in a barn in Kansas, for sure!

This looks so wonderful! I would love to attend something like this that I normally do not see. I am hoping to get to Paris in the next few years, it is on my bucket list for sure!

This could not be more perfect timing – and somewhat of "hey, I deserved this moment!" Back when I was studying abroad in Paris in 2011, I lost money going there and spending money for the year, when one euro was $1.50, then when I left it had shot down to one euro at $1.20, so I got screwed going there and leaving haha. Now I'm going back and can't wait to see my dollar stretch further!
