Hermès of Paris is proud to announce their participation in this year’s American Gold Cup at Old Salem Farm, New York. A World Cup qualifying event, it attracts competitors from around the world and Hermès U.S riders Nicholas Dello Joio and Lillie Keenan.

“For competitive riders and members of the public being introduced to Show Jumping for the first time alike,” comments Hermès U.S. President & C.E.O. Robert B. Chavez, “the American Gold Cup perfectly represents the beauty, elegance and excitement of this dynamic sport in perfect alignment with the values of the House.”

At the Alltech 2014 World Equestrian Games in Normandy, it was announced that Hermès has been selected by the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) as the official supplier of technical riding apparel and accessories to US Teams in eight international equestrian disciplines. The collection will be available at the Hermès Paris UES location at 691 Madison Avenue, NYC and the Rodeo Drive location at 434 North Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills as well as on Hermès.com.

Before the Birkin and Kelly bags, established in 1837, Hermès made a name for itself as a harness maker. Six generations of enterprising and passionate artisans have contributed to spreading its values: savoir-fair built on the application of highly precise and skilled crafts to the finest materials, the love for beautiful objects created to last over time and the spirit of constant innovation.

The American Gold Cup, one of the most prestigious and iconic equestrian sporting events in the world of International Show Jumping, was held over five days September 10 – 14. In case you missed it, a 90-minute presentation of the event will be broadcast on NBC Sports at 4:30pm (EST) this Sunday, September 21.
