2* and 3* riders compete on the renowned Longines Masters arena in a Masters Two 1.35m class, table A with jump-off.
Last year, this was dominated by Louis Bouhana, riding Unanime des Forêts. The pair was one second faster than Nicolas Bost, the Olympic Champion's son, who dropped down to second place after having lead a while. "I have the advantage of riding an experienced mare. She came to me this year, having started her career with Guillaume Blin-Lebreton and I have reaped the rewards of his work. I will enter her in the Grand Prix 2 * on Sunday because she showed us today that she was ready. This is the first time I take part in the Longines Masters of Paris: it's really impressive!" Louis adds. The Netherlands' Laetitia Surin comes third.
