But to become a crack, the young horse has to learn his future job. The French SHF training circuit allows to young horses, from 4 years old, to evolve on adapted classes, developing their abilities for potential buyers. So, until 7 years old, young sport horses and ponies go to “school competition” and win a strong experience. The best of each generation meet them during the Grandes Semaines, the national finals reserved for young horses, which crown champions of each generation. For six and seven-year-old horses, they are the way to discover the future high level stars. Place to be for breeders and riders searching a new horse, the Grandes Semaines take place every year from August to October, for all the disciplines: Ponies, Show jumping and hunter, Eventing, Dressage, Driving and Endurance.
In 2015, the France Young Horses Show Jumping Championships will be in Fontainebleau (near Paris) from August 29 to September 6. The Fences sales will be the moment to unearth a champion. A lot of cracks, as Itôt du Château, or the worldwide champion Quickly de Kreisker, have been sold thanks to the Fences auction. The three-year-old horses presented this year have high quality jumping. The Paille de la Roque’s full brother or the Rock’n Roll Semilly’s brother will also be auctioned. As to the France Young Horses Eventing Championships, it will take place from 7 to 13 of September in Pompadour, close to Paris equally.
