Season 2015

Valkenswaard

  • 13th-16th August 2015

Valkenswaard, the spiritual home of the LONGINES GLOBAL CHAMPIONS TOUR, is always a favourite with riders, owners and sponsors alike. Showjumping legend Ludger Beerbaum says it’s his favourite show! This year, Stal Tops’ private equestrian estate will host the 12th round of the Tour from the 13-16th August.

The superb facilities created by Longines Global Champions Tour founder and president Jan Tops have reached new heights this year following a multi-million euro development bringing the venue up to world-class standard. Once again, the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Valkenswaard will be the main highlight on Saturday, while on Sunday the Derby will provide a spectacular finish to the show. 

Last year's Grand Prix saw a sparkling victory for Germany's Christian Ahlmann and Codex One. Away from the excitement of the arena, the prestige shopping village, restaurant and hospitality provide a delicious distraction. The event pulls out all the stops in the pursuit of a truly memorable, high-quality service, and the stylish VIP enclosure is always packed. 

Before the Longines Global Champions Tour of Valkenswaard gets underway, the hugely popular Horse Festival Valkenswaard will take place the weekend before. The combination of the festival and the Tour running consecutively attracts over 30,000 people to the pretty Dutch town where they enjoy the beautiful equestrian facilities and a feast of world-class sport.
