World's Top Show Jumpers to Celebrate 40 Years of Jumping Monte-Carlo at Longines Global Champions Tour of Monaco

World's Top Show Jumpers to Celebrate 40 Years of Jumping Monte-Carlo at Longines Global Champions Tour of Monaco

From June 29 to July 1, the famous Port Hercules will welcome the world’s best show jumpers for the Jumping International of Monte-Carlo, the ninth stage of the prestigious Longines Global Champions Tour. 

This 2023 edition will be marked by an exceptional evening with the Longines Pro-Am Cup, in aid of the Amade association which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. To make sure you don’t miss any of this sublime event at the foot of the Princely Palace, the ticketing is now open and will give everyone the chance to book a seat in the grandstand for one or more of the three incredible evenings on the program.

Monte Carlo, will once again be the meeting place for stars. Five weeks after the Formula 1 Grand Prix and a few days before the first concerts of the Monte Carlo Summer Festival (Sting, Mika, Tarkan, Imany, James Blunt and many others), the Rock will live, as it does every beginning of July, at the rythm of show jumping. 

Always faithful to the Monegasque event, a dream destination for athletes but also for lovers of the beautiful sport, the world’s best will be present on the Port Hercule track with the serious intention of succeeding to last year winner, Austrian Max Kühner on EIC Corioli des Isles. Among them, the French riders will try to imitate Kevin Staut, the only Frenchman to be crowned in Monaco in 2012 with Rêveur de Hurtebise HDC. 

A historic stage of the Longines Global Champions Tour since the first edition in 2006, at a time when only six stages punctuated the season, the Jumping International de Monte Carlo is a privileged moment for all the champions on this particularly atypical track where the riding qualities and agility of the horses are even more in demand than on other events. Each of the three days of the competition will begin with the CSI 2* classes, with some experienced and others up-andcoming couples, and the National classes, a wonderful opportunity for young Monegasque riders to compete on the same track as their idols.


Although the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix du Prince de Monaco (Saturday 1st July, 8.15 pm) is the highlight of the three days of competition, the event offers a particularly intense programme each day, including, on Friday 31st June, the two rounds of the GCL.

Among the most popular events for the public, the Longines Pro Am Cup will be held on the evening of Thursday 30th June. Created in 2010 and sponsored by Mrs Charlotte Casiraghi, the event brings together within the same team an experienced amateur and an international star. Each pair defends the colours of a sponsor and takes part in a relay course specially designed to allow the two riders to express themselves and to ensure a great show for the spectators. 

The Amateur rider starts with a course of 7 obstacles at 1.10m and then passes the baton to his Pro teammate who in turn starts on 1.30m. This event is organised in aid of AMADE (The World Association of Children’s friends), chaired by H.R.H. The Princess of Hanover. This association was founded in 1963 by Princess Grace of Monaco, around a vision of a world where every child, whatever his social, religious or cultural origins, can live with dignity, in security and in the respect of his fundamental rights. A world where every child can fully express their potential. Last year, at the end of the event, a donation of €25,000 was presented to H.R.H. The Princess of Hanover by Mrs Diane Fissore, President of the Jumping International de Monte-Carlo.
