Pau At A Glance: Meet the Horses of 2022’s Final Five-Star

This week’s coverage of Pau on EN is brought to you with the support of Kentucky Performance Products. We couldn’t do much of what we’ve done these last few years without the support of sponsors such as KPP — which, by the way, is a horses-first, women owned and operated company based in, you guessed it, Kentucky — and without you, our readers! So as we head into this final hurrah of our season, too, we thank each and every one of you.

And just like that, the 2022 season was over — or nearly, anyway. We’ve got one last big one to sink our teeth into before the battening down of hatches and digging out of training manuals and DVDs, and it’s one of our favourites here at EN. Welcome to the sultry south of France and weird, wonderful Les 5 Etoiles de Pau, where we’ve got a sizzling field of horses and riders from 11 different nations coming forward to fight for the prize — including five-star victors, some of the best debutants in Europe, Olympians and young riders alike.

It all kicks off tomorrow at 10.00 a.m. local time (9.00 a.m. British time/4.00 a.m. EST) with the first horse inspection, which will be followed by a short afternoon session of dressage — so to get you into the spirit of the thing, let’s take a glimpse at the stats of┬áthe 50 horses who will come forward this week.
