Monaco provides the glamorous and intimate backdrop for a host of showjumping talent this weekend for the latest in the Longines Global Champions Tour. All eyes will be on a number of top horses including Kent Farrington’s (USA) strong-willed 10 year old chestnut gelding Creedance, and Simon Delestre’s (FRA) striking black stallion Qlassic Bois Margot and Chesall Zimequest.
David Will (GER) will be hoping for a fitting result with Mic Mac Du Tillard as the 17 year old is due to retire following next weekend’s leg of the tour in Paris. Great Britain’s Olympic gold-medallist Ben Maher MBE is looking for success with his British-bred chestnut mare Diva II, whilst fellow Brit Scott Brash rides Hello Forever and Hello Annie.
Nestled closely alongside some of the most impressive yachts in the world, the compact sand arena requires horses with agility, speed and scope. Jessica Springsteen (USA) will be hoping she has enough to continue her impressive winning streak with the consistently speedy Davendy S.
All of the action kicks off with the first CSI5* competition at 14:15 local time with the Global Champions League at 17:00. Tune in via GCT TV or Facebook LIVE to watch all the action from magical Monaco.
