No Full Test Event is Planned for Paris 2024
Eventing competitors who were hoping to familiarize themselves with the Versailles course ahead of the Paris 2024 Olympics. They will be disappointed to learn that a full-fledged test event will not take place this summer. And that marked the first time in three decades. The Paris 2024 organizing committee has taken another step away from the usual protocol by hiring an external management firm. And that is GL Events, to oversee the entire equestrian infrastructure.
These changes were announced only in November during the FEI General Assembly, with only 18 months remaining until the Games. According to recent reports, the Paris 2024 organizing committee is looking to save costs. But there are concerns that the equestrian park located at the famous Versailles Chateau is not progressing well. And that also has led to changes in management plans.
In light of this, the committee has announced that there will be no full Olympic test event this summer. And they are breaking the tradition that has been upheld for over 30 years. A 2-star three-day event is typically organized one year prior to each Olympic Games in France. This allows for testing of infrastructure and logistics for both specialist dressage and jumping disciplines, as well as eventing.

However, Soenke Lauterbach, secretary general of the German federation, expressed concern that the infrastructure would not be ready a year and a half before the games, saying that he was getting cold feet. Earlier this month, officials from the FEI visited the Versailles site, but a thorough evaluation of the cross-country course will not take place until September. At that time, only a few horses will be present, and it will not be a competitive scenario.
Ingmar de Vos stated that Olympic Paris work at Versailles is difficult
Ingmar de Vos, the president of FEI, has reportedly acknowledged that they had to make some compromises due to the challenging work at Versailles and the combination of the horse park with the modern pentathlon, which had a riding stage for the last time. As a result, the organizers lost some potential competition days, and all equestrian events will end without a break on the Tuesday of the second week.
A hectic situation could be created as all 65 riders in the eventing dressage will be judged in a single day, which could have significant consequences. The FEI Rules for Olympic Paris have not yet provided a detailed schedule, and it is subject to change. However, it is known that Equestrian eventing will take place from July 27-29 after the opening ceremony on July 26.
Team dressage and team jumping will start on July 30 and July 31, respectively, and the competitions for these two disciplines will continue until August 6.
The organizers are expecting grooms to sleep in their trucks to be close to their horses, which was not always possible in previous Games where grooms had to commute to off-site accommodations. France Olympic Equestrian jumping competition format and schedule
France Olympic will maintain the same Equestrain Jumping competition format and athlete quota as Tokyo 2020 for jumping. The individual and team competitions will each award two sets of medals in two Open events. In the individual competition, a maximum of one athlete-horse pair per NOC will participate in the France Olympic qualification round. The round involves completing a course with obstacles and difficulties within a set time limit.
The lower the score, the better. 75 pairs will participate in the France Olympic qualification round, and the 30 best pairs will advance to the final. At the upcoming Olympic Paris, the team event in equestrian sports will feature 20 teams, each consisting of three athlete-horse pairs. We calculate the total score of each pair using the same method as the individual event.
In this competition, the teams with the top 10 highest scores will advance to the final round. In the final round, the judges will reset the previous scores to zero and determine the podium winners based on the final scores. The equestrian competition at Paris 2024 will take place from July 27 to August 6, and the venue will be the Chateau de Versailles.
