Wednesday, 03 July 2013 International Show Jumping

All set for action

Carinthia’s first international four-star show jumping event opens at the GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER today. International riders from 28 nations with some 300 horses will be demonstrating their skill in the arena until Sunday.

At the four-star premiere, there are 18 individual competitions. With prize money totalling €487,000, the riders not only want to place in the International Show Jumping but also use the five opportunities to gain points for the Longines World Rankings. Many Olympic and World Cup winners as well as World and European Champions have registered for the lucrative event. 

It kicks off at 9am today with the opening jumping for all the tours. From then on you can follow exciting equestrian sport for amateurs, young horses and the mega-stars in the saddle. The action lasts for four days with the highlight of the competition weekend on Sunday: the GLOCK Grand Prix. It has a purse of €300,000 and also ranks as a qualifier for the 2014 World Equestrian Games.
