The French Face-Off: How to Watch Haras du Pin

The Nations Cup competition this week goes by a few names already: officially, it’s Le Grand Complet; often, you’ll hear it referred to by the Normandy estate it sits within, Haras du Pin (colloquially “Harass” if you’re…not that good at French) — but we’re adding a new one into the mix and referring to it as Diet Pratoni. The CCIO4*-S competition here is jam-packed with well over 100 entries and 19 nations represented, and its convenient location in the calendar means that this event, which was also the site of the 2014 World Equestrian Games, is perfectly positioned to function as a final selection trial for many of the major players heading to Pratoni for next month’s World Championships.

We took a closer look at some of the highlights on the entry list yesterday — and believe us when we say that’s just the tip of the iceberg! — and in very welcome news, the good folks at FEI TV have been able to spare just enough hands while they’re busy with Herning to provide a livestream of the hottest four-star of 2022.

For the optimal streaming experience, you’re going to need to commit to a ClipMyHorse.TV subscription — or a trial, if you’re a new member — but we reckon it’s well worth the price, particularly if you also want to follow the World Championships for Jumping in Denmark over the next few days, too. For those who aren’t in a position to spring for a streaming subscription, there’s also a live feed on Vimeo that offers a pretty good view of the action in the dressage ring.
