Cavalcade of Stars for Magical Longines Global Champions Tour of Monaco

Cavalcade of Stars for Magical Longines Global Champions Tour of Monaco

The best international riders and horses will descend on the Principality of Monaco to face challenging technical courses in one of the most compact arenas on the Tour, where daring, scope and bravery are the key ingredients required for a successful charge. Watched over by the super-yachts and nestled in the former Formula 1 pit lane, this event is truly unique in the world of show jumping and draws fans from all around the world.

Monaco has been an established part of the LGCT calendar since 2006 and the magical back-drop of Port d’Hercule and the iconic Prince’s Palace in Monaco will once again provide a spectacular venue for the midway point in the 2021 Longines Global Champions Tour season. The three-day feast of top-class show jumping alongside the world-famous harbour of Monte-Carlo will deliver fantastic entertainment from the 1 - 3 July.

In the 2021 LGCT Ranking, third place leading lady Edwina Tops-Alexander will have a chance to catapult herself up to the number one position as she sits just a podium position away from current leaders Peder Fredricson and Ben Maher. 

Alberto Zorzi and Emanuele Gaudiano both former winners will be returning to Monaco and looking to contest for a golden ticket to the Longines Global Champions Tour Super Grand Prix this year.

Looking to take the win under the evening lights will be the likes of Pieter Devos, Olivier Philippaerts, Nayel Nassar, Simon Delestre, Scott Brash, Ellen Whitaker, Darragh Kenny, Martin Fuchs, Julien Epaillard, Marlon Modolo Zanotelli, Jos Verlooy and Max Kuhner. 

The enchanting Riviera location and luxurious facilities at the Monaco event combine to deliver a stunning experience for families, VIPs, sponsors, owners and riders. Monaco, which also plays host to Formula One and ATP Masters tennis, is a hub of sport with many high-profile fans in attendance. HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and other members of the Royal Family are patrons of the event and are joined by business leaders and celebrities to cheer on the riders.

Amongst the stars, big names, rising talent and legends of the sport will be battling for the coveted LGCT Grand Prix du Prince de Monaco, one of the most prestigious accolades in show jumping

My vision is clear. Only the best for the best.
