The countdown is on for Le Grand Complet CCIO4*S!

Le Grand Complet, scheduled on August 13-16, 2020 at the iconic site of the Haras national du Pin (Orne, Normandy) has organised a sports program identical to previous years.

Five international classes will punctuate the four days of competition. Le Grand Complet will also serve as a support for the Grand National FFE circuit for French riders. On the organisational side, Ustica, the organising association, has chosen to open access to visitors at a rate of 1000 per day.

The only international eventing competition in Normandy is to welcome several hundred participants from the five scheduled classes: CCI2*-S, CCI2*-L, CCI3*-S, CCI3*-L and CCIO4*-S.

From short 2-star (2*-S) to short 4-star (4*-S) level, Le Grand Complet presents a wide range of difficulties for riders, amateurs or professionals. The International Equestrian Federation (FEI) has also entrusted Ustica for the 4th consecutive time with the organisation of a FEI Nations Cup stage (CCIO4*-S), an event at the end of which two rankings will be established, one individual, the other by teams. France is the title holder (3 wins in a row!).

New for 2020: the CCIO4*-S event supports the Grand National FFE circuit. This means that a separate ranking will be established at the end of this class, taking into account exclusively French riders involved on this circuit.

The event also goes back to a format Thursday / Sunday (instead of Thursday / Tuesday), more compact and which allows spectators to attend cross-country as well as show jumping events Saturday AND Sunday.

As every year, Le Grand Complet will also support the FFE Top 7 circuit reserved for 7-year-old horses and the Eventing Tour, a circuit that brings together the most important French eventing competitions.

Say tuned for news on start lists - and whether there will be any Aussies in action!
