LONGINES GLOBAL CHAMPIONS TOUR OF LONDON
The world’s top 40 riders, including Team GB gold medallists Nick Skelton, Scott Brash and Ben Maher, will be taking part in this spectacular event. Current Global Champions Tour champion Edwina Tops Alexander will be among the Top 30 riders competing for a share of the staggering €450,000 Longines Global Champions Tour of London Grand Prix prize money.

A grandstand for 3,000 spectators, with tickets from £10, will be erected around the arena with VIP hospitality lounges with ringside seats for all the show jumping action. A shopping village and a giant TV screen will also be available for the public to soak up the atmosphere and get a taste of a premier equestrian sport experience.

Tickets will also be availabe to purchase at the venue during the event.
A 23,000 strong crowd, with many more watching at home, saw Great Britain’s show jumping team win Olympic gold, the first for Great Britain in this sport for 60 years, at Greenwich Park last summer. This was coupled with the Great Britain dressage team claiming both team and individual gold a few days later.
