Host of the 7th leg of the Tour, Chantilly is famous for its impressive, beautiful château, it’s premier racetrack and, of course, Chantilly cream.

Between the elite level show jumping competitions, visitors can enjoy the Musée Vivant du Cheval (Living Horse Museum), created by Yves Bienaimé in 1982, where the equestrian world of the past and present is brought to life in visually stunning equestrian shows and dressage demonstrations. Then it’s back to the picturesque arena for a stunning display of horsemanship from the world’s best riders.
