Longines Global Champions Tour
Show jumping’s brightest stars set to compete at the 2018 Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show
29-05-2018

The rider’s list has been released for the Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show (May 31 – June 2, 2018) and it’s clear there will be no shortage of talent in play during three days of intensive competition on Ramatuelle, France’s celebrated Pampelonne Beach.

 

Representing more than 20 nations from around the globe, this year’s athletes include Olympic medalists, World Cup Jumping Finals winners, and World and European Champions. Among them are 2017 European individual gold medalist and 2016 Olympic individual silver medalist Peder Fredricson (SWE), 2014 World Equestrian Games team gold medalist and 2012 Olympic team silver medalist Jur Vrieling (NED), 2012 Olympic individual bronze and 2017 European individual bronze medalist Cian O’Connor (IRL), and back-to-back World Cup Jumping Finals winner (1990-1991) John Whitaker (GBR). 

 

Home country France will also be well represented by nine of its most accomplished athletes, including two members of its standout, 2016 Rio Olympic gold medal-winning team: Kevin Staut and Roger-Yves Bost. Other leading riders in attendance include top-50 ranked show jumpers Julien Épaillard and 2014 World Equestrian Games individual silver medalist Patrice Delaveau, as well as France’s Simon Delestre, who currently sits seventh in the world. 

 

For the first time this year, the Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show will join the ranks of the prestigious Longines Global Champions Tour (LGCT), becoming the sixth stop in the 17-leg series. Among the weekend’s highlights: two rounds of star-studded Global Champions League (GCL) action beginning on Thursday, May 31 and culminating with the finale on Saturday, June 2 as a lead up to the €300,000 Longines Global Champions Grand Prix of St. Tropez. 

 

GCL home team, the St. Tropez Pirates, will be looking to defend their victory earlier this month in the GCL of Hamburg, where riders Laura Klaphake (GER) and Pieter Devos (BEL) pulled off an impressive win, helping to secure a third place position for the Pirates in the overall standings. In Ramatuelle, Devos will be competing alongside St. Tropez Pirates teammates Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS) and show founder Athina Onassis (GRE). 

 

Celebrating its fifth year of competition, the Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show brings together the sport’s best athletes to compete, just steps from the beach, in one of the world’s most glamorous locales. The event will feature six CSI5* competitions in addition to an array of CSI2* classes, offering amateur riders the chance to compete alongside the pros at one of the most highly anticipated events on the showjumping calendar.
