The Masters of Chantilly will be hosting some renowned equestrian artists as Mario Luraschi and Clémence Faivre. They will share their new show: Plaisir Equestre. Clémence Faivre and her lusitano horses have toured the world and been invited to the best international stages.
She grew up in Gouvieux, north of Paris. Passionate about horses and cinema, Mario Luraschi trained her in equestrian arts. Now, both perform all over the world in the most exciting performances.
Not only the Masters of Chantilly is located only 40 minutes away from Paris, but also the venue is easily accessed for people who arrive by train, car or plane.
Chantilly reminds of an enchanted town and is considered the capital of the horse. The place is filled with history and heritage, and the Domaine de Chantilly is an exceptional site that includes the Château and the Great Stables.
The Great Stables contain more than two hundred objects, evoking the importance of the relationship between horse and rider since the start of civilization. The equestrian art in this venue pictures the evolution of the horse and horse breeds in the world, the role of the horse in relation to power, war, hunting and, obviously also sport.
