Ask sylvierobert: In all the prestigious events you organized, if you had to choose a precise edition of one of them, which one would it be and why?

Hard question, as I feel happy today to live my passion and to be in this current dynamics, with many prestigous houses who trust us, such a Longines, Hermès, the International Equestrian Federation ou the French Equestrian Federation.

I would choose three events, which really left a mark on my career and on my life as an equestrian sports addict, each one for different reasons.
I would choose the first international edition of the showjumping competition we hosted in Lyon, on Equita 2004. The national show already had a great reputation, was appreciated by riders, the Association of Showjumping Riders and Actors made it it's "most beautiful show" several years in a row.

The word of mouth helped, and on our first international show we had an exceptional platter with the best German riders, or Edwina Tops Alexander, Marcus Fuchs who won the Sunday Grand Prix...
I also keep in mind the first edition of the Saut Hermès in 2009. The first horse in the arena, under this mythical glass of the Grand Palais, is an unforgetable memory.

The last Longines FEI World Cup Finals of jumping and dressage in April at the AccorHotels Arena remain an exceptional memory.

Horses' comeback in this arena, in the heart of Paris, was a dream we were a lot to have: we made it and had some exceptional sport moments.
