Popular in winter as one of the most popular French resorts, Megève is no less a popular destination in summer. And if the calendar of summer events is growing a little more each year, the Jumping International de Megève - Edmond de Rothschild has managed to impose itself, without pretension, as the flagship event of the season.
Seduced and conquered by this equestrian universe and this federative and warm atmosphere, it is indeed a whole village that lives to the rhythm of the competitions and the animations during six days.
This is one of the keys to success for this major event which brings together more than 500 horses and 350 riders of some twenty different nationalities, from promising young amateurs to the most successful professionals such as Nick Skelton, Laura Kraut, Natale Chiaudani, Carlos Lopez, Michel Robert and Simon Delestre, as well as the young generation of champions such as Alexandra Paillot (FR), Julien Gonin (FR), Adrienne Strenlicht (US), Alexandre Fontanelle (FR) and Cyril Bouvard (FR).
But to acquire this status of a must-see event and the recognition of its peers in so few years, Jumping has also managed to make itself attractive to a diverse and captivated public.
Free access, a sublime and well-kept décor, a festive atmosphere, entertainment: a formula crowned with success since more than 25,000 visitors attend the event each year.
