The Monte-Carlo International Showjumping to celebrate 20th anniversary


The Monte-Carlo International Sho jumping celebrates its 20th anniversary and signs its 10th participation in the Longines Global Champions Tour.

Glamorous leg of the circuit, this unique show jumping competition, held under the patronage of Madame Charlotte Casiraghi and nestled under the back-drop of the Prince’s Palace, will welcome the world’s best riders for three days of competition on the Port Hercule, from June 25th to 27th.

Created in 2006, the Longines Global Champions Tour, which can be compared to the horse version of the Formula 1 world championship, is an international circuit around the world during the summer season, in incredible places, from Miami beaches to Doha through the Champ de Mars in Paris and the Olympic Stadium of Rome. This circuit, coveted by the world’s best riders of the discipline, as well as Olympic champions, world champions, world cup winners, had bet, since its creation, on the magic of Monte-Carlo.

A choice surely explained by the unusual landscape offered in the Port Hercule, on the Quai Albert 1er and underneath the famous Rocher des Princes of Monaco. The place is clearly peculiar: show jumping horses’ elite evolves among the luxurious yachts and beneath the prying eyes of the passersby. A true equestrian stadium is installed for the occasion, at the very heart of the port close to the stables facing the Mediterranean sea.

Each leg of the Longines Global Champions Tour is driven by high level classes, during three days, with the culminated Grand Prix endowed 300 000€ (approximately 100 000€ for the winner). Points earned are used to establish an overall ranking. Thus, at the end of the circuit, the best eighteen riders share a purse of € 1,000,000. Only thirty best world’s riders are invited to this prestigious event.

Such a competition guarantees the excellence of the riders. A great program on the horizon for three days animated by the same equestrian passion with the amateurs classes during the day and high-level ones in the evening.

Spectators looking for thrills will not want to miss the show, under any circumstances.
