The Constance Hotel Challenge is officially underway, with the first round winner crowned today at the Longines Global Champions Tour of Ramatuelle, St. Tropez.
In the new concept in partnership with Constance Hotels & Resorts, a luxury hotel chain with properties in Mauritius, Maldives, and Seychelles, the project is dedicated to CSI 2* riders and covers three events in Saint-Tropez, Cannes, and Monaco.
Round 1 of the challenge was secured by Cassiopeia Darnet, who now leads with a total of 170.5 points, and has secured the first of the six enviable and world-class trips.
Riders will receive points throughout the three events, and a final ranking will be announced after the Monaco leg to determine the best 2* riders of the series. Constance Hotels & Resorts will provide six once-in-a-lifetime packages for a weekly stay at their luxurious resorts. The best 2* riders from each event will be rewarded with a package, as well as the best three riders from the ranking after the Monaco leg.
The collaboration between LGCT and Constance Hotels & Resorts aims to offer a unique experience to riders and to promote the sport of show jumping globally. With luxury resorts in some of the most stunning destinations in the world, Constance Hotels & Resorts is the perfect partner to enhance the experience of LGCT riders.

1. Cassiopeia Darnet – 170.5 points
2. Jean Francis Simon – 161.75 points
