CSI5* Jumping International du château de Versailles 2017

Jumping International du château de Versailles made its debut on the showjumping calendar last weekend, and from the looks of it this is an event that should be here to stay – the French for sure know how to make the most beautiful shows in the world! World of Showjumping gives you some of the highlights from the Rolex Grand Prix, the feature class of the show – won by Brazil's Pedro Veniss and the wonderful Quabri de L'Isle.

In December, Pedro Veniss and Quabri de L'Isle won the CSI5* Rolex Grand Prix in Geneva - five months later and they repeated their performance in Versailles. It was a close call though, as the pair beat Denis Lynch and Echo de Laubry by a tiny 0.01 seconds.
