The CPEDI*** of Deauville returns !

The CPEDI*** of Deauville, International Para-equestrian Dressage Competition, returns to the Pôle International du Cheval Longines-Deauville from the 27th to the 30th of May.  In 2020 the Normandy event wasn’t spared by the health crisis that had an impact on the entire sporting season.

Determined to return strongly in 2021,  the association Handi Equi’ Compet, who organise this event in addition to supporting and accompanying para-equestrian dressage riders, is very keen to make the 10th birthday of this show a celebration.

Over 3 days, the Pôle International du Cheval will live to the rhythm of competition. The Team-Test and Individual Championship tests take place over the first two days and determine the results of the Nations Cup. The last day will be devoted to the eagerly awaited Freestyle to music tests.

Every year, the Normandy event welcomes the leading para-dressage riders, such as Italy's Sara Morganti and Great's Britain's Sophie Wells. Both regulars at the show, the number 2 and 3 in the World respectively, always monopolize the podiums in their categories. The organisers are hoping to see other riders loyal to the event such as Rihards Snikus in Grade I, Laurentia Tan in Grade I, Sanne Voets in Grade IV and Frank Hosmar in Grade V,  all ranked in the World’s top 10. The Nations Cup, won by Great Britain eight times will be the object of everyone’s desire, the Netherlands and Belgium, whose teams are ranked second and fourth in the World are among the favourites.

At just a few months before the Tokyo Paralympic Games (24th August  - 5th September), and being held between the CPEDI*** of Stadl Paura in Austria and the CPEDI*** of Kronenberg in the Netherlands, Deauville’s CPEDI***  will be one of the last rehearsals for riders. It will be the opportunity for competitors to show their form and also to confront international competition in front of a demanding panel of judges. The show will help selectors from each nation make their final choices in who to send to Tokyo. Thus the stakes are high from the 27th to the 30th of May 2021.

The French have made the most of a year deprived of competition to continue their progression at numerous master-classes, they are impatiently awaited and will have their word to say within the white boards of Deauville’s arenas. The CPEDI*** of Deauville will equally be the opportunity to meet France’s up-and coming young talents, including Chiara Zenati who caused a sensation in January 2020 at the Mâcon CPEDI***.

 

As was initially previewed in 2020, all classes and activities will take place outdoors. A further reason to come and experience a great moment of sport whilst enjoying Deauville’s seaside and charm.
