In the middle of the afternoon, the best cross-country horses of the moment arrive at the paddock to be presented to the public. The jockeys with maximum concentration take their turn to arrive. It’s an unchanging ritual. The tension is all at once tangible; subsequently the horses enter the track for the parade. The pack crosses the « Gué » by way of a test obstacle.

The die is cast. No more bets please… Here we go for a 6200m track scattered with 32 obstacles of which the « Banquette Irlandaise », unique in Europe, the « Passages de route », the « Volpoom », the « Nouvelle Banquette », the « parc à moutons »…
