EquuRES certification: a commitment to the environment and well-being 

The Printemps des Sports Equestres, which took place from 19 to 23 April 2023 at the Grand Parquet de Fontainebleau and was organised by GL events Equestrian Sport, has been awarded the EquuRES EVENT certification for the second year running. 

EquuRES EVENT is the only French certification label devoted to the environment and animal welfare, and specifically adapted to equestrian events. It raises awareness of these two major issues among participants, suppliers and spectators by addressing key topics such as the use of local suppliers, the management of waste, water and energy, landscape integration, animal and human well-being, biodiversity, etc.  

In order to obtain this certification label, GL events Equestrian Sport needed to demonstrate its commitment to these various issues by meeting a set of specifications and requirements based on several criteria divided into nine themes: Animal Feed & Bedding, Well-being & Veterinary Care, Travel & Transport, Water & Energy, Outdoor spaces & Landscapes, Manure & Waste, Team Management & Communication, Infrastructure & Equipment, Catering & Accommodation.
