OUR HISTORY

Virginie COUPERIE-EIFFEL
President of the Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping

"The Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping was born from a deep desire to bring together the heritage of my mother and my father : the Eiffel Tower and the love of horses. "

The dream come true

"I have long dreamed of this event, both sporting, cultural and standard  French art of living. In the heart of Paris, the Horse becomes accessible to all, competition horse, show horse or leisure horse. He is indeed man's best friend."

A jumping family! 

Realizing this dream is also a way of paying homage to my parents. I wanted to unite the heritage of my mother, a descendant of Gustave Eiffel, Gustave's daughter, and my father's, Emeric Couperie, great horse enthusiast, founder of the Jumping of Bordeaux and who introduced the Equestrian World Cup in France.

This crazy project was possible thanks Longines, a historical partner of the equestrian world which carries within it the values of excellence and elegance.

I am happy to associate with this dream Jan Tops, the Founder and President of Longines Global Champions Tour and the GCL. Paris makes its entry into this prestigious circuit and becomes an unmissable stage, bringing together the best riders in the world. 
 

theLongines Global Champions Tour - Longines Paris Eiffel Jumpingis also an opportunity for many amateur riders and young hopefuls, on a parallel circui tCSI 1*, to compete against exceptional obstacle courses and rub shoulders with their champions.

the Longines Global Champions Tour - Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping  is an unmissable event and a fantastic time for everyone! P
young and old, professionals and amateurs, enthusiasts and neophytes...

Let the party begin !
