This year, four days of competition await riders and spectators at the Longines Deauville Classic. An event at the heart of the DNA of the city of Deauville vibrating all year round to the rhythm of the horse and its major events.

The best riders on the planet will be on the track for this prestigious event, like Julien EPAILLARD, fourteenth in the world and current best French, Kevin STAUT (# 22), Pénélope LEPREVOST (# 23), Simon DELESTRE (# 28), Roger-Yves BOST (# 44) and Alexis DEROUBAIX (# 62). The 2019 edition crowned the American Margie Goldstein-Engle who had led her Dicas to victory after a fourteen jump-off, then ahead of the French Jérôme Hurel on As de Mai. Once again and with impatience, the best riders from around twenty nations are expected to offer the Norman public a competition of the highest quality.

In the program of this summer competition, tests labeled CSI 3 *, CSI 1 * but also a CSI Young Horses. As of Thursday, the riders of the CSI 3 * will compete on courses designed by the famous French track master, Grégory Bodo, also present at numerous 5 * level meetings in recent years. The long-awaited Longines Grand Prix of the Normandy Region at 1,50m, Sunday afternoon, will be the highlight of this prestigious competition.
