Global Champions Tour coming to the Royal Hospital

World-renowned show jumping event, the Longines Global Champions Tour will be taking place for the first time at the Royal Hospital Chelsea early next month.

The spectacular event, taking place between 4th - 6th August, will form the London leg of the 15-event circuit, coming at a key stage in the 2017 season when the ranking battle will be at full throttle.

At its official launch last week, the Chelsea Pensioners were able to meet British Olympic gold medallist Scott Brash. Brash, part of Team GB’s victorious squad at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, will be among the world’s leading riders at the event.

With a shopping village, refreshment areas and thrilling sporting action packed into three days there will be something for all the family as the LGCT and GCL series raise the temperatures in London. In the village area, delicious food and drinks will be available throughout the competition, and for the children there will be a dedicated area, including face painting and the gorgeous Longines Carousel ride. Throughout the weekend there will be autograph sessions with the top British riders, as well as in-arena entertainment, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Friday 4th August will see world class CSI5* action, as well as the first round of the thrilling Global Champions League. Saturday 5th will host the final of the Global Champions League ahead of the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of London, and Sunday 6th will see further top action from the world's top riders and horses in high octane CSI5* classes.
