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.
Tucked in as it is at the tail end of the season, Les 5 Etoiles de Pau can sometimes fly a touch under the radar — but that’s not really fair on this unique French five-star, nor the intrepid riders who tackle it. We’ve got a seriously exciting field this year, and we’re diving straight into figuring out what exactly makes it so compelling.
Yesterday, we took a look at the horses taking part in this week’s five-star — and today, our spotlight is wholly on the riders. Who’s the youngest in the field? How about the oldest? Which riders have a track record of success at this venue, and are men or women leading the way in the line-up? For all this and more, keep on scrolling.
