We are currently receiving a lot of questions about this year's event. We will keep working on the 2020 vintage of Les 5 Étoiles de Pau (a CCI5*-L event and FEI Driving World Championship for singles) - a great celebration marking the 30th edition of this event and included in the agenda of the best riders and drivers in the world.
For our 40,000 visitors who eagerly wait for the event each year, and the one million online viewers; for our 150 sponsors and suppliers who rely on us; for our 100 exhibitors who are preparing their tradestands; for the territory in which we are rooted in, each year promoted through the event; for the riders and drivers who are looking forward to competing in this exceptional sports meeting - the team is going to spare no effort, and do everything possible to make Les 5 Étoiles de Pau happen this year, while of course respecting the health requirements that may be necessary.
We would like to thank our sponsors who have reaffirmed their confidence despite their own difficulties, the visitors who keep purchasing their tickets, the exhibitors and their willingness to participate, as well as the Pau event volunteers who have registered - we need your support to keep going. You are helping to make this 30th edition a special one, with a unique meaning. See you on October 21-25, 2020!
Any riding exercise is about the art of the possible. This is especially true with jumping exercises, when a step too far will compromise safety. Exercises and a method should be developed progressively that build confidence and competence for both horse and rider, and in particular also allows room for error.
In the show jumping phase, where a ribbon can be won or lost based on a fraction of a second, it is important to understand the rules that determine how time is kept. After reviewing the rules concerning time and other show jumping penalties, one should also examine the rules that outline the faults incurred for each of the different types of penalties.
Sue Ockendon, organizer of the MARS Bromont CCI Three-Day Event and the FEI Eventing Nations Cup announced today that the event has decided to consider dates further along the calendar. The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for Bromont to confirm that it would be possible for competitors to travel on August 15-18.
There were 14 USEA recognized events that took place in June, the first month back from the suspension of the eventing calendar due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While no one finished with a score in the teens, Erin Walker and Zydeco Nights came very close. By finishing on a score of 20.0, Walker and Zydeco Nights won the Novice Rider division at the Chattahoochee Hills H.T. on Sunday, June 28.
