LONGINES GLOBAL CHAMPIONS TOUR will return to the vibrant and lively city of Madrid from 1-3th May 2015. Spain’s capital city will host the 3rd event of the highly-anticipated season. As a prestigious addition to the Championship calendar in 2013, Madrid is a globally significant capital which buzzes with sophistication and energy.
Madrid’s exclusive country club, the Club de Campo Villa de Madrid, will once again host the Longines Global Champions Tour series at its equestrian centre, where the best riders and horses in the world will compete in the CSI5* Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Madrid. The elegant Club de Campo Villa de Madrid is a well-known venue in the city and an important hub for those passionate about equestrianism.
With excellent equestrian facilities and two golf courses - including one designed by the late Seve Ballesteros - this unique venue brings together elite level competition and the glamour of world-class show jumping in the historic Spanish capital. The show ground is only a few kilometers from the famous monuments and architecture within the heart of the city, including the Plaza de Cibeles, with its stunning Cibeles Fountain.
Last year saw World Team Gold medalist Dutchman Maikel van der Vleuten and VDL Groep Verdi win the Grand Prix in fine style ahead of Germany's Marcus Ehning with Plot Blue in Silver and Van Der Vleuten's World Championship team mate Gerco Schroder with Glock's London in Bronze. In 2015, the Longines Global Champions Tour of Madrid Grand Prix is sure to be a hot competition!
