Just a stone’s throw from the world-famous La Croisette, the Longines Global Champions Tour of Cannes event is a remarkable combination of glamour and top-class sport. Held under the glittering evening lights, the very best horses and riders in the world take centre stage for the sixth round in the 15-leg Championship.
Positioned close to the Mediterranean Port of Cannes and the super-yachts in the bay, the first of the French events of the Tour is a very special horse show in the heart of the French Riviera.The original ‘International Show Jumping of Cannes’ was one of the world’s richest horse shows, with prize money continuing to increase since the show joined the Tour. Now a regular fixture on the LGCT calendar, the show has grown every year and welcomes over 15,000 visitors though its gates each summer.
Drawn by the incredible level of sport on offer and the collection of international show jumping stars in attendance, visitors enjoy the ambience, glamour and nightlife of this famous city, home of course to the dazzling Cannes Film Festival. Last year the spotlight shone on Great Britain’s top rider, Olympic Gold Medallist Scott Brash (GBR) after he put in a breath-taking performance with Hello Forever to win the prestigious Grand Prix. Which names will be added to the star-studded list of previous winners here?
