The seventh leg of the 2018 LGCT and GCL whas moved on to Cannes this week. The beautiful emplacement welcomes the world’s best riders and horses in a remarkable combination of glamour and top-class sport.
Positioned close to the Mediterranean Port of Cannes and the super-yachts in the bay, the first of the French events of the Tour is a very special horse show in the heart of the French Riviera. The original ‘International Show Jumping of Cannes’ was one of the world’s richest horse shows, with prize money continuing to increase since the show joined the Tour. Now a regular fixture on the LGCT calendar, the show has grown every year and welcomes over 15,000 visitors though its gates each summer.
Drawn by the incredible level of sport on offer and the collection of international show jumping stars in attendance, visitors enjoy the ambience, glamour and nightlife of this famous city, home of course to the dazzling Cannes Film Festival. Last year the spotlight shone on Spain’s Sergio Alvarez Moya (ESP) but which names will be added to the star-studded list of previous winners here?
