“ While equestrian sports may still be an acquired taste, there is one point no one can challenge: the beauty of the horses goes beyond the riders’ sporting feat and extraordinary performance, creating a sense of wonder. It is probably that which makes shows jumping universal, transcending countries, cultures and populations. ”

Set in the three of the world’s most emblematic metropolises – Paris, Hong Kong and New York – the Longines Masters series, is recognized as one of the most prestigious events in the equestrian world.

Created by EEM and inspired by the Tennis Grand Slam, the series brings together under one roof all the best in sports, lifestyle and entertainment, from across three continents.

Concurrently, EEM created the ultimate challenge in elite international show jumping: “The Indoor Show Jumping Grand Slam”. Accredited by the IEF (International Equestrian Federation), this unique inter-continental challenge offers two exceptional levels of recognition:

  • Super Grand Slam – a €2,250,000 bonus for three consecutive wins in the Longines Grand Prix, in a single Longines Masters season.
  • Grand Slam – a €1,000,000 bonus for three successive victories at Longines Grand Prix straddling two Longines Masters seasons.

Every year, the Longines Masters Series draws the planet’s best riders and horses to Paris, Hong Kong and New York. This exceptional concept celebrates the best in equestrian sports and art of living, and unites all audiences, equestrian sports aficionados and anyone interested in sharing an event like none another. 

Every edition of the Longines Masters is an unmissable event that brings together people sports aficionados, sports lovers, celebrities and corporate leaders from all over the world, ready to celebrate a unique event brimming with moments of sport, emotion, show, glamor, gastronomy and contemporary art.

“ WE RIDE THE WORLD ”,

the journey into excellence continues! Sirichai, a New York artist hailing from Bangkok, designed the collection of “Art Works” posters for the Longines Masters Season III. Drawing inspiration from the shapes, motion and simplicity emanating from the event, he deftly translated all the lightness and elegance of this equestrian sport into art.
The posters for the Longines Masters Season III are available for sale at the online store:

In an enthralling setting, the Longines Masters offer four days of glittering displays, interspersed with emblematic flagship events such as the Longines Speed Challenge, a full-fledged World Speed Championship across 3 continents, the Longines Grand Prix, a technical 1.60 meter event bringing competitors one step closer to the ultimate “Indoor Show Jumping Grand Slam”, or the new competition unveiled this year, in conjunction with the EEF (European Equestrian Foundation): the Riders Masters Cup, which will pit the world’s two leading powers in show jumping, Europe and the United States, against one another.

The Longines Masters are also a unique multi-cultural event that celebrates the art of living across three continents. From sports to art, fashion, gastronomy, show and music, the event celebrates three unique cultures, united around a single passion. Fringe events offer competition viewers the chance to enjoy in a Prestige Village, After Parties, and private concerts in the lounge.
