Jappeloup (2013)

Based on the true story of one of France’s most beloved sporting heroes. In 1980 Pierre Durand was at the start of a promising law career. To everyone’s surprise however, he gave it all up to dedicate himself to his true passion: show jumping. Throwing himself into the endeavor he invested everything he had in a young horse called Jappeloup. It was obvious to everyone around him however that the horse was too small and much too temperamental to succeed. Determined to prove the doubters wrong Pierre forged ahead, and competition after competition, horse and rider began to improve.

Through triumph and setback, driven at times by sheer force of will, they took a journey that lead them, against all odds, to gold medal success at the Seoul Olympics in 1988.
