The 11th round of action for the Longines Global Champions Tour season will see the top horses and riders in the world return to Valkenswaard, The Netherlands, and the spiritual home of the Tour. Hosted by the stunningly re-vamped Tops International Arena, the next leg of the Championship will see a four day festival of show jumping from the 4th to the 7th of July, with competitions for all levels of riders in the beautiful and specially designed complex. 

As well as the CSI5* competitions, which will feature some of the most famous names in show jumping, there will be classes for upcoming Young Horses, as well as CSI1* and CSI2*, partnered by Magic Millions, giving the opportunity for the future stars of show jumping to compete on a global stage. 

Saturday will see the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Valkenswaard kick off at 16:15 local time - last year it was won by the brilliant Marco Kutscher (GER) with his relitavely young stallion Van Gogh. With the overall rankings exceptionally close, this leg of the Tour will be a crucial turning point in the battle for the 2016 Champion of Champions title.

The Global Champions League will take place on Sunday 7th July at 15:30 local time, and with the Valkenswaard United team at the top of the team rankings, the pressure will be on to see if the home team can keep up their strong performance on home turf. 

With the chance to get up close and personal to the stars of show jumping at the beautiful Tops International Arena, just before the 2016 Rio Olympic games, and with a shopping village, entertainment and much much more, this will be one event you don't want to miss this summer!
