Monaco conjures up images of yacht-lined harbours, glitzy motor racing and glamorous people clad in sunglasses strolling through the streets of Monte Carlo. And when it comes to showjumping, that’s no exception. Step forward the Longines Global Champions Tour of Monaco.
For three days last week (25-27 June), some of the world’s top horses and riders took part in the seventh round of the Global Champions Tour, against the backdrop of Port d’Hercule and the Prince’s Palace in Monte-Carlo.
