From August 23 to September 7 2014, the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 will take place in Normandy, France. The occasion will write a new page in the history of world class equestrian sports and will place France on the centre stage of the international equestrian world. More particularly, Normandy, France’s leading equestrian region will be hosting the two weeks of equestrian excellence.
So the strongest competitors from more than 60 nations will compete in the eight official disciplines of the Fédération Equestre Internationale: Jumping, Dressage, Eventing, Driving, Reining, Vaulting, Endurance and Para-Dressage, as well as two demonstration disciplines.
Just a few hundred kilometers from Mont Saint-Michel, where the Endurance event will be taking place, is the premises of SAINT JAMES, a maker of maritime clothing since 1889. This Normandy business has just been awarded the statues of « Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant » (Living Heritage Enterprise).
Excellence in sport and excellence in know-how was bound to come together. Thus SAINT JAMES became the Outfitter and an Official Supplier of the Organising Committee for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy. The company is supplying the official outfits for the Organising Committee of the Games as well as the Officials of the Fédération Equestre Internationale, nearly 250 people, in total.
During the event, the general public will have the opportunity to purchase a version of the official Organising Committee and FEI Officials’ outfit, through the official networks of the event. These will include an online shop, retail outlets on the site, competitors’ village, the d’Ornano Stadium and the national stud, Haras du Pin. These outfits will also be available through SAINT JAMES sales outlets in France and abroad.
With its 300-strong workforce, SAINT JAMES has an international reputation and will contribute, through the quality of its clothing and its distinctive style, will add to the good reputation of Normandy.
On the tracks and equestrian circuits, the line of SAINT JAMES clothing specially designed for this event will add to the traditional elegance of the equestrian universe and Normandy’s heritage and lifestyle.
