Widely regarded as the ultimate show jumping challenge, the Rolex Grand Slam is the most coveted prize in the sport, rewarding the rider who wins the Grand Prix at three of these shows in succession. To date, Scotland’s Scott Brash is the only competitor to achieve the feat, having done so in 2014–2015.
Created in 1966 and held in the medieval Dutch city of ‘s‑Hertogenbosch, The Dutch Masters attracts the world’s leading horse and rider combinations. The event’s blend of magnificent show jumping and elite dressage has strengthened its position at the top of the international indoor show jumping circuit. Its reputation is such that, in 2018, it became the fourth Major in the sport’s leading equestrian contest: the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping.
It is the ultimate dream for riders; the ultimate spectacle for enthusiasts. It is simply magnetic as they assemble together on hallowed grounds, united by an equal passion. With every masterful jump, elegant piaffe and stunning athletic movement, Aachen epitomises the equestrian event against which all others are measured.
Located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Canada, the event has a spectacular setting, as well as perfect facilities for the world's best horses and riders to perform to the best of their abilities. The CSIO Spruce Meadows 'Masters' Tournament is regarded by many enthusiasts as the leading equestrian event in North America and Rolex is proud to have been affiliated with it since 1989.
Since 1996, Rolex has been the Presenting Sponsor of CHI Geneva, a pre-eminent equestrian competition, which in 2020 celebrates its 60th edition. In 2019, the Geneva International Horse Show was chosen for the 10th time in its fabled history as the best indoor jumping event in the world, and for the first time, the best indoor cross event in the world. The show brings together an extraordinary line-up of elite riders in the world’s largest indoor equestrian arena for four days of compelling action.
