Grand Prix Giscours: from 1 to 4 July, experience an exceptional horse show

For this first ever Grand Prix, Giscours is throwing opening its doors for four days and inviting you to experience a national horse show organised in an exceptional setting.

A national horse show in a spectacular setting

From 1 to 4 July 2021, Giscours is proud to invite you to its estate for the first year of this national outdoor showjumping competition: the Grand Prix x Giscours.

For 25 years, the Albada Jelgersma family has been investing to transform Giscours into an estate where innovation, creation and boldness are central values, guiding both our fine winemaking and our ability to welcome guests.

Sporting competitions and cultural events have always taken place at Giscours and are part of our heritage and culture.
Today more than ever, we are proud to welcome you to the first ever Grand Prix de Giscours and to continue our estate’s position in the history of equestrian sport.
