Every year, the Monte-Carlo International Showjumping Competition welcomes the best riders in the world for 20 events at the highest levels.

The Monte-Carlo International Showjumping Competition has been bringing together the world’s best riders since 2006. As the Principality’s third biggest sporting event, after the Formula 1 Grand Prix and the Tennis Masters, the competition, organised by Diane Fissore, President of the Monegasque Equestrian Federation, is both a jumping contest and a race against the clock. Over the course of three days, there are 20 events for the public to enjoy.

Monaco is one of the top events on the Longines Global Champions Tour (LGCT). Established by former international rider Jan Tops in 2006, this international series of five-star showjumping competitions provides an opportunity to watch the world’s best showjumpers compete.

In Monaco, the stars of the discipline – such as winners Max Kühner in 2022, Kenny Darragh in 2021, Maikel van der Vleuten in 2019, Shane Breen in 2018, Scott Brash in 2015, Richard Spooner in 2013, 2009 and 2008, and Kevin Staut in 2012 – compete over a 1m60 course.

Located on Port Hercule, the Monte-Carlo International Showjumping course is one of the most difficult on the global circuit. It is small and narrow, demanding perfect technique and mastery from riders.

Set up where the F1 stands once stood, against a backdrop of yachts, the event requires facilities to be constructed and dismantled in the space of a few days. Some 1,100 tonnes of sand for the course have to be brought in and then removed within less than 24 hours, and arrangements must be made to ensure the safe arrival of the horses…
