Four riders from North America are listed among the 64 entries at the elite Eventing competition this year: Hawley Bennett-Awad (Canada) with Jollybo, and Bruce O. Davidson Jr., Alexandra Knowles and Boyd Martin (United States) on Copper Beach, Sound Prospect and Cracker Jack, respectively. 

They will be up against crème-de-la-crème rivals in the sport over the course of this weekend's Dressage, Cross-Country and Show Jumping phases, including World No.1 Michael Jung of Germany, Andrew Nicholson and Mark Todd of New Zealand and last year’s winner Maxime Livio of home side France. 

Located near the Spanish border and the Atlantic Ocean’s Bay of Biscay in France’s Aquitaine region, Pau offers beautiful views of the snow-capped Pyrénées mountain range. But this weekend, the eyes of equestrian sports fans will be on the powerful horses and riders battling for bragging rights at the celebrated event, which also features a CAIO4*.
