Though you might not expect it, Los Angeles is to be the home of the first American Gland Slam this fall.
EEM World, the creator and organizer of the Masters Grand Slam Indoor, the world’s most prestigious indoor Show Jumping events that include the annual Gucci Paris Masters and Longines Hong Kong Masters, has decided to make LA the home of its Stateside show jumping event.
The event, which will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on September 25 – 28, is modeled after the Grand Slam in tennis and is the most televised show jumping competition in the world.
The American leg of the Masters Grand Slam Indoor will put Los Angeles on the map for the international equestrian scene, as the 25 best riders in the world compete for a total prize money of $1 million.
Longtime luxury sponsors of the Masters Grand Slam include Longines, Gucci, Dassault Falcon, Airbus Group, Veuve Clicquot and Land Rover.
