    The Grande Semaine of Fontainebleau brings everyone together. It attracts a combination of small breeders and well-known stallion owners, professional and amateur riders along with the owners of their horses as well as dealers who come to pick their future acquisitions.

    For all those watching, reaching the finals of the young horses’ circuit is a sign of a properly trained, experienced and skilled horse, all qualities that prove the excellence of the French circuit.

    The "Cycle Libre" riders (amateur category) fully enjoy this final on the mythical Grand Parquet grounds. About 750 horses will challenge each other in 5 categories to reach the first step of the podium.

    In the "Cycle Classique" (professional category), about 1,000 horses from 4 to 7 years old will compete for the French Champion title.

    Show Hunter is little known in France, but is also being promoted and will see its champions crowned during this breeding week.
