10th EDITION DU CPEDI *** DEAUVILLE

The world elite of para-trainers is found in Normandy for the only CPEDI in France.

Organized by the Handi Equi Compet association, the CPEDI *** of Deauville (International Para-Equestrian Dressage Competition) returns to Normandy for its 10th edition!

For four days, the best French and international para-dressage riders take advantage of this meeting to face international competition and above all to captivate the public by the elegance of the movements of the horse-rider couple. The current world number 2 and 3 will be present, the Italian Sara Morganti in Grade I and the British Sophie Wells in Grade V, both regulars of the place and who monopolize the podiums of their events every year. The organization hopes to find the faithful of the competition like Rihards Snikus in Grade I, Laurentia Tan in Grade I, Sanne Voets in Grade IV or even Frank Hosmar in Grade V, all in the world top 10. The Nations Cup will be the object of much envy, the Netherlands and Belgium number 2 and 4 in the world by team being among the favorites. A few months before the Tokyo Paralympic Games, the CPEDI *** in Deauville will be one of the last rehearsals for the riders.

Three events are on the program: divided into five categories according to their handicap grade, athletes from Grade I (heaviest handicaps) to Grade V (lightest handicaps) will battle it out on the Team Test (preliminary test), the Individual Championship (compulsory recovery) and the Freestyle (free recovery in music) which will close the competition.

In 2019, Great Britain won the coveted title in the team event for the 8th time in a row! Also in individual, the country triumphed thanks to Sophie Wells, crowned best rider of the competition. Could 2021 be the year of change?
