A press conference was held on thursday evening in Paris-Villepinte, with Virginie Coupérie-Eiffel, who points out the new organisation of the event, and especially the paddock pony games for the youg riders.

Jean-Luc Poulain is happy to note that the Gucci Masters and the Salon du Cheval have become a whole, a huge screen allowing the visitors in Hall 5 to watch the Gucci Masters.

« This year, we expect about 130,000 visitors, and maybe more », Jean-Luc Poulain says. Our moving from the center of Paris to Villepinte was a very goog thing : visitors are just as numerous as before, and besides, we are close to the Charles de Gaulle Aiport, which makes it easier for all foreigh visitors to come.

Our magazine is happy to know that the "big boss" of the Salon du Cheval is himself a keen horseman, rider and driver. He tells Cheval Savoir « I've been driving a pair of french cobs from Normandy,they were sturdy and generous. Today I'm more interested in KWPN horses : they have amazing gaits, but sometimes they are not as bold as necessary for driving. But I never saw one with a bad temper.... ».

EEM's Christophe Ameeuw said : « Without Nelson et Rodrigo Pessoa, together with Virginie Coupérie-Eiffel, we would not have reached this goal. Our aim is now to have this event going on and grow. We must keep finding new ideas, such as the "Gucci by Gucci" or the Top Ten final Show Jumping.
Here in Paris, the spectators are especilly excited to see two french riders, Kevin Staut (n° 7 in the Rolex ranking) and Simon Delestre (n°10)
