Longines Equestrian Beijing Masters: Top-class field of participants in the Bird’s Nest

Top-class field of participants in  the Bird’s Nest at the Longines Equestrian Beijing Masters

 

With Christian Ahlmann (GER) and  Simon Delestre (FRA), the top two in the Longines ranking list are competing, as  well as Jeroen Dubbeldam, the reigning World and European Champion of the  show-jumpers. An exquisite field of participants is taking part in the meanwhile  6th Longines Equestrian Beijing Masters.

 

From Thursday onwards ten  international top stars will be competing against the best riders in China in  the “Bird’s Nest”, the legendary Olympic Stadium in Peking. “It is this special  concept that makes the show so unique,” explained the co-organiser Frank  Kemperman. “One can only develop at a high level if one can take on the  challenge from the best in the world,” stated Kemperman. So, in order to bring  forward the equestrian sport in China, the organisers developed the “Longines  Equestrian Beijing Masters” platform. The international riders not only compete  in the ring, they also take on the role of trainers. They support their Chinese  colleagues both in practical and theoretical terms.


The highlight is the Longines Grand  Prix on Sunday, however prior to this an extraordinary class is on the agenda  for the top Asiatic riders on Friday evening: In the team competition they  compete together with their European colleagues – under floodlights. “To ride in  the team in this fantastic floodlit arena, is a thrilling experience,” commented  Kemperman. 


Due to the quarantine regulations in  China all of the international riders will be competing on borrowed horses. The  Chinese organisers are being supported by the show-jumper, Ludger Beerbaum, who  will also be in action in the saddle himself, as well as by the organisers of  the CHIO Aachen, led by Frank Kemperman and Michael Mronz. The latter is  particularly delighted that not only the show itself, but also the coverage has  developed excellently: “Among others, BTV Sports, Guangdong Sports and CCTV will  be broadcasting coverage in China, Eurosport in Europe. Live images from the  “Bird’s Nest” will also be available on ClipMyHorse.tv,” noted  Mronz.
