The CSI**** of Cannes
Cannes is a very special horse show. It is staged in the center of the city, only 50 meters away from one of the world's famous avenue: La Croisette.
The "International Show Jumping of Cannes" became the world's highest endowed horse show in 2000 with 1.4 million dollars in prize money. Since then, the world's best riders and their top horses come to the city of the "International Film Festival" annually to enjoy the top sport of the famous Global Champions Tour stage and the glamorous ambiance.
Last year, the audience saw Australian Edwina Alexander win with Itot de Chateau. She was the only one to jump completely clear over all rounds including the jump off beating home Kevin Staut, Jessica Kuerten, Marco Kutscher and Marcus Ehning. A truly fantastic competition!
Cannes is one of the most famous cities in the world. The show has a strong attraction for its 15,000 visitors, who are fascinated by the city's star status. Four world famous buildings are situated on the Croisette, to welcome the finest riders, owners, VIP's, and equestrian fans. The golden sands of the beaches, the prestigious shops, finest restaurants, and night clubs will make sure your stay in Cannes during the show is a unique experience!
At the show grounds, amateur classes for riders from all over the world are staged during the day time. The international five star competitions are held in the evening, with the Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of France broadcasted live in 59 countries by Eurosport. After that, it is party time in the private "Riders, owners and VIP club" on the show ground!
One characteristic of the Cannes CSI***** is its quality of infrastructure, which makes this horse show a fantastic stage to delight spectators, but also offers the best communication and marketing opportunities to international sponsors and media.
Welcome to Cannes!
