Faster than a speeding snail, the Event Rider Masters circuit races on this weekend with Leg 5 at the Jardy International Eventing Show. The setting: Haras de Jardy, a famous Thoroughbred stud in a western suburb of Paris. Established in 1890, the venue’s centerpiece is a century-old stable yard, iconic clock tower and indoor riding school that looks like something out of a storybook, surrounded by mixed meadows and woodlands. Enchanting!
Jardy is the fifth and penultimate event in the 2018 ERM series, with Blair Castle as the grand finale August 25-26. Australia’s Chris Burton earned himself the top spot on the 2018 Series Leaderboard after a stellar performance in Leg 4 at Barbury Castle — can anyone catch him? All of the top six riders in the series are heading to Jardy and the stage is set for an epic battle over the 2018 Series Podium.
Here’s the CIC3* course preview from our friends at CrossCountryApp. Many thanks to Paul Tapner for recording.
The action begins bright (er, still dark if you’re stateside) on Saturday with Michael Jung and Corazon at 10:30 a.m. local time/4:30 a.m. EST. Go Eventing!
