Miami Beach + Elite Equestrians: 2019 Longines Global Champions Tour stop 3

Miami Beach + Elite Equestrians: 2019 Longines Global Champions Tour stop 3

Hello Fab Friends!

Our season at the Winter Equestrian Festival and Spring Series has come to a close...so we are hitting the beach!!! #goingtomiami Hold on - it's not exactly what you might be thinking...

Sarah will be setting up shop! She is excited to be apart of the event and will be bringing a selection of clothing and shoes as well as Jewelry from her own line, S. Row Designs. 

At the conclusion of the Winter Equestrian Festival, riders and their horses disperse from Wellington throughout not only the United States but all over the world. The first stop for several riders is just a short trip to Miami for the 3rd stop on the 2019 Longines Global Champions Tour.

The competition takes place over the course of 3 days (April 18-20) and is literally built for the occasion right on the beach in Miami behind the Setai Hotel. It is an incredible site to see. Beachgoers lounging nearby can walk right up to watch the show and experience the highest level of equestrian sport. 

So, what is the Longines Global Champions Tour (LGCT)?

Each Longines Global Champions Tour and Global Champions Leauge event can be separated into two categories – CSI5* and CSI2* classes. The CSI5* is the top level of competition, where the top-ranked riders in the world compete for big prize money over fence heights up to 1.60m – which is the highest in the sport. The CSI2* classes are slightly smaller in height, and offer opportunities for local athletes as well as international rising stars.

The Global Champions Leauge is the team competition, where riders come together into teams to compete for points towards the overall Championship. 

The Longines Global Champions Tour is the individual Championship, with the world’s best competing for the LGCT Grand Prix win. This class offers the largest purse of prize money for the weekend, Championship ranking points, and a win would mean they qualify for a place in the GC Playoffs, where the Longines Global Champions Super Grand Prix will take place. This Super Prix will consist of winners from each Grand Prix throughout the season returning for a final showdown, to see who will come out on top in the finale of the season on Tour.
