Valkenswaard, The Netherlands, is the spiritual home of the Longines Global Champions Tour, and has always been a favourite with riders, owners and partners alike. This year, the venue will celebrate it's 25th anniversary, a special milestone for one of the most prestigious venues on the calendar.

For the 13th season of the world's premier show jumping season, the spectacular, state-of-the-art Tops International Arena will host the 14th round of the Tour from 10th - 12th August. The superb facilities created by LGCT founder and president Jan Tops have raised the bar in equestrian sport new heights, cementing the venue as the epicentre of equestrianism in Europe. 

Designed with the horse as the top priority, the show ground features an exceptional 125m by 85m sweeping grass arena, four further sand arenas featuring top class footing, canter tracks and lunging arenas, expansive warm up arenas, exceptional wash areas and facilities for grooms to provide top standard care and over 500 world class and beautifully designed stables available for visiting competitors. Within the impressive complex there is a shopping village, refreshments and entertainment areas - all of which are available for everyone in the family to enjoy, and tickets allowing the perfect view of the action under covered grandstands as the 2018 LGCT Championship battle gallops towards the finish line.
