Nestled at the foot of the Prince’s palatial ramparts, the 13th edition of the Jumping International of Monte-Carlo promises exceptional moments of sporting emotion. The Jumping International of Monte-Carlo, one of the main trials in the Longines Global Champions Tour since its creation in 2006, is a horse jumping event unlike any other — taking place on the waterfront beneath the celebrated Rocher des Princes de Monaco. The setting up of an entire equestrian event in the middle of a busy harbour is a formidable challenge. The waterfront is transformed into a luxurious equine venue, requiring the hauling in of vast quantities of specialised sand for the competition surface and the transformation of the dock into elegant stabling.
Charlotte Casiraghi as its patron, the competition brings together professional and amateur riders from around the world in a highly competitive yet convivial event that has the entire audience on its feet.
Each Grand Prix is endowed with a purse of € 300,000, of which the winner receives € 100,000. The tour’s eighteen best riders will share a purse of one million euros.
