Next Stop... Round 7: Longines Global Champions Tour of Cannes

Photo: Cannes

The first of four 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’ has been on the circuit since it was launched and is one of the most historic events. Now a regular fixture on the LGCT calendar, the show has grown every year and welcomes thousands of visitors though its gates each summer.

 

'The City of Stars' is just a stone's throw from the world famous La Croisette, and the Longines Global Champions Tour of Cannes event is a remarkable combination of glamour and top-class sport. Moments from the Mediterranean, the competitions featuring the world’s leading riders and horses take place in the evening when the arena is illuminated by multi-coloured lights adding to the glamour of the occasion.

 

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 Fredricson but which names will be added to the A-list line up of previous winners here?
