Tokyo Olympic Games: the French Paralympic Riding Team in training at the Pôle International du Cheval Longines - Deauville

After the cancellation of the CPEDI 3 * (Para-Equestrian Dressage International Competition), it is a great relief for Paralympic athletes and their horses to be able to continue their preparation at the Pôle International du Cheval Longines - Deauville from May 28 to 30, for the Olympic and Paralympic Games to be held this summer in Tokyo.

Maintain athlete training at all costs

Supported by the French Equestrian Federation, the best French Paralympic pairs take possession of the premises for three days of intensive training. National Technical Advisor (CNT) for para-dressage, Fanny Delaval explains this strategic choice to maintain training despite the cancellation of CPEDI 3 *: "We looked for a solution to keep the pace of preparation of our riders and horses. Thanks to the Pôle International du Cheval Longines - Deauville and the dynamism of its teams, our riders and horses will be able to appear before international judges".

In the same vein, Franck Le Mestre, Director General of the Pôle International du Cheval Longines - Deauville, is delighted to contribute to the preparation of athletes for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, impoverished in view of the health context: "It is natural that we wanted to show our support to the French Equestrian Federation by facilitating the implementation of this course at the Pôle, labeled Terres de Jeux 2024.".
