***COVID-19 – plans for our tour to Pau are on hold until we know how long the effects of coronavirus will be felt across Europe. As soon as we know whether Pau is running and whether it will be safe and responsible to take a tour there we will update you***
Pau CCI5*-L is the final top level competition in the (northern hemisphere!) eventing calendar. Held next to the city’s famous racecourse the event is hugely popular with international competitors and visitors alike. With an atmospheric dressage and jumping arena, and a cross country course designed by World Championship and Olympic course designer Pierre Michelet, the competition is fierce.
In 2020 Pau is hosting the World Carriage Driving Championships alongside the eventing. With a more relaxed atmosphere than its British counterparts, the rich autumn colours and delicious food and wine make for a totally unique and joyous supporters’ experience.
As well as experiencing every second of the competitive action, expect a week full of the very best activities this stunning area on the edge of the Pyrenees has to offer. From a visit to a vineyard to a thoroughbred stud, it will be a truly unforgettable trip!
