The Royal Stable will host for the first time from 5 to 7 May 2017 the international jumping 5 * of Versailles. This new prestigious CSI 5 * event organized by MG Events will see the best riders in the world compete for the Grand Prix Rolex (300,000 euros) which they will want to add to their list.

The Royal Stable, a magical setting

A historic place

World-renowned and registered at UNESCO since 1979, the Palace of Versailles has chosen to host the greatest international riders for this high-level sporting event.

At the time of King Louis XIV, equestrian art had a very important place in the Court. Sovereigns and courtiers must master this discipline to perfection.

A magical setting for a magnificent show

The royal stables, jewels of French architecture were built by Jules Hardouin-Mansart between 1679 and 1682. Their situation in front of the castle demonstrates the place given to the horse at the time. Built atypically in the form of a horseshoe, the place chosen for the jumping will delight the riding enthusiasts but also those of the heritage.

Rolex, Official Sponsor

For this first edition, the prestigious Rolex watch brand becomes the official sponsor of the Palace of Versailles International Show Jumping Competition. The Grand Prix Rolex (300,000 euros) will register as one of the most coveted titles.
