The equestrian jump is an Olympic discipline in which men, women and animals participate in sport together. It requires an indissoluble bond between horses and riders, who have a unique character with an infinite work ethic. Produced in the period before one of the richest jumping Grand Prix in the world, it enters the intimacy of a champion – in both horse and human.
