Jessica Gordon – Salon du Cheval Director

Sophie Delavaud – Arabian Horse World Championship Show Manager

How long have you been working with this show, and what is your best memory of the World Championships? 

It is our first time together as Show Organizers for Paris Arabian Horse World Championship but we have been working on major international equestrian events such as the Olympics, World Equestrian Games, World Championships, European Championships, CSI 5* show jumping competitions etc.

We have been attending the World Championships for a long time and our best memories are the victories of Marwan Al Shaqab who was our dream horse.
