The Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping is a global initiative created in 2013. It comprises the four equestrian majors: The Dutch Masters (which completed the quartet in 2018), the CHIO Aachen, the CSIO Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ Tournament and the CHI Geneva.
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.
THE DUTCH MASTERS
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.
CHIO AACHEN WORLD EQUESTRIAN FESTIVAL
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.
CSIO SPRUCE MEADOWS ‘MASTERS’
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.
Rolex has been the Presenting Sponsor of CHI Geneva, one of the equestrian world’s most prestigious competitions, for a quarter of a century. The event brings together an extraordinary line-up of elite riders for four days of compelling action in the world’s largest indoor equestrian arena. Known also as the Geneva International Horse Show, it has been chosen on 10 occasions as the best indoor jumping event.
