Steeplechase

 Haies(Hurdle)、Steeplechase、Cross Countryと区分されるのは一般的な障害競馬開催国と同様ですが、フランス障害競馬の特徴は年齢別のレースが数多く行われている点にあります。特にイギリス・アイルランドと比較すると早期から障害競馬を走るため、結果的にフランス障害競走で経験のある馬が数多くイギリス・アイルランドへと輸出されています。5歳以上SteeplechaseにおいてG1競走は春と秋に2レース行われており、特に春のGrand Steeplechase De Paris (G1)はフランス障害競走における最高峰の競走として君臨しています。このレースにはイギリス・アイルランドからも参戦馬を集めますが、フランス障害馬の高い壁に跳ね返され続けています。
