Princess Haya of Dubai has revealed she can't wait for the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.
"With just 100 days to go before the start of the Games, excitement is really building," she said. "The world's best horses and riders will be going for gold in Normandy so we can expect absolutely top sport. We are looking forward to these being the best Games yet."
As anticipation builds for the competition, French artist Christophe Dumont created a spectacular piece of sand art to count down the final 100 days before the event.
The piece features giant horse hoof prints forming a huge '100' shaped art piece on Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel's famous Normandy beach, with Christophe and his team racing against the tide to complete the project.
The 2014 games have a record breaking 72 countries taking part, making it the world's greatest global equestrian sport event.
