Out in Saint-Tropez with Laura Mathy

This spring, the sparkling, coastal town of Grimaud is hosting a major new event on the European horse show calendar: the HUBSIDE SPRING TOUR. Two weeks of show jumping competition, the first running from the 17th-21st of April, and the second weekend the 25-28th of April.

Helmed by its towering, 11th century castle and surrounded by lavender fields and rocky outcrops, the sun-drenched commune of Grimaud, in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, is a hidden gem of the French Riviera. Among the region’s highlights: the seaside town of Port of Grimaud, less than three miles from the equestrian facilities. Known as the “Little Venice of Provence”, the port is renowned for its glittering canals and brightly colored, fisherman-style houses.

We spoke with Belgian showjumper Laura Mathy who knows her way around like no other in the beautiful port of Saint-Tropez.
