At the start of the 1980s, Pierre Durand abandoned a promising legal career and threw himself into his true passion, showjumping. With his father’s backing, he gambled everything on a young horse who no one else had any faith in: Jappeloup. Too small, too stubborn, too impetuous, he had many faults, but nonetheless had a remarkable jumping ability. From competition to competition, the pair improved and began to make their mark on the showjumping world. But the Los Angeles Olympic Games were a disaster for them, and Pierre had to face up to his shortcomings. With the help of his wife Nadia and groom Raphaëlle, Pierre regained Jappeloup’s confidence and built a relationship that took them to victory in the Seoul Olympics in 1988.

Au début des années 80, abandonnant une carrière d’avocat prometteuse, Pierre Durand se consacre corps et âme à sa passion, le saut d’obstacle. Soutenu par son père, il mise tout sur un jeune cheval auquel personne ne croit vraiment : Jappeloup. De compétition en compétition, le duo progresse et s’impose dans le monde de l’équitation, jusqu’aux Jeux Olympiques de Séoul en 1988.
