Jump straight to the latest Global Champions Tour news

Global Champions TourWithout a doubt the most glamorous competition in showjumping — if not the entire equestrian sporting calendar — the Global Champions Tour consists of 15 separate events, bringing together the top showjumpers in the FEI world rankings to jump off in exclusive venues in cities all round the world.

The 12th leg of the tour sees the competition return to London, this time at Chelsea hospital on the banks of the River Thames (4-6 August). Other cities hosting legs of the tour in 2017 include Mexico City, Cannes, Shanghai, Paris, Miami Beach, Doha, Madrid, Hamberg, Estoril, Chantilly, Berlin, Valkenswaad and Rome.

The brainchild of former Olympic showjumper Jan Tops, The Longines Global Champions Tour is the world’s most lucrative five-star showjumping event. The series is a favourite among celebrity equestrian enthusiasts — rockstar Bruce Springsteen and Microsoft magnate Bill Gates have both been spotted at events, cheering along their respective showjumping offspring Jessica Springsteen and Jennifer Gates. For those who can afford it, the VIP hospitality is said to be excellent!
