Take a ride at the Jumping of Monaco, the must-see event for horse lovers!
One of the most beautiful equestrian competitions on the world show jumping circuit, the Jumping International of Monaco has captivated the public since its creation in 2006.
This stage of the Longines Global Champion Tour, set up by president Diane Fissore and former Olympic champion Jan Tops, is certainly the most unusual of the international tour.
Indeed, the development of the equestrian stadium on Port Hercule requires colossal work by the Monegasque teams to transform the Quai Albert 1er into stables.
Tons of sand were needed to create the star track that would welcome the champions for three days. Another rare and funny image: the horses are housed on the port and two hooves away from the yachts.
The other particularity of this event lies in the difficulty of the races. Like the Formula 1 Grand Prix, the narrow and winding tracks require perfect control to avoid penalties and try to win the trophy.
3 events can be admired from the top of the stands during the Jumping of Monaco. More than 80 riders will take to the sandy track for courses combining speed and jumping in the CSI 2 and 5 categories.
This international show jumping competition brings together the 30 best riders in the Longines world rankings on the world's largest courses. These prestigious competitions, where the top 18 riders share a bonus of approximately 1 million euros, are considered the most important in international equestrian sport. Classified as CSI 5, the highest level of difficulty, the Longines Champion Global Tour consists of 17 rounds in the world's most prestigious cities, from New York to Dubai, via Prague and Rome.

Sponsored by Charlotte Casiraghi, the Principality's star rider, the Pro-Am Cup is a relay event unique in the world where experts and young riders compete against each other in a grandiose time trial. It usually takes place on the 2nd evening of the Jumping of Monaco.
