Beginning next week in vibrant Mexico City, the world’s top show jumpers will unite once again on the Longines Global Champions Tour (LGCT), now in its 12th season, and in the burgeoning Global Champions League (GCL) for its second season. As the first of fifteen spectacular destinations for this prestigious tour, the historic field of Campo Marte glistens as a gorgeous equestrian venue amidst a bustling metropolis. With a star-studded cast of show jumpers and talented horses heading south, the second year of LGCT Mexico City promises to be another event to remember.

Also ranked in the top 20 in the world, Steve Guerdat of Switzerland, Harrie Smolders of the Netherlands, and Lorenzo de Luca of Italy will add to the intensity of the competition.

With the chance to earn valuable points throughout the season, the individual highlight classes also offer large purses.
