The world’s best showjumpers are heading to the Netherlands this weekend for the Rolex Grand Slam of Showjumping – and you can watch the event LIVE on Horse & Country.
This is the first year the Dutch Masters (Indoor Brabant) has hosted the fourth leg of this prestigious series, and it joins CHIO Aachen, CSIO Spruce Meadows Masters and CHI Geneva.
Held at ‘s-Hertogenbosh, the Dutch Masters is the largest indoor show in the Netherlands, with four days of world-class competition, culminating in the Rolex Grand Prix on Sunday 11 March.
The line up of big names include Scott Brash, who is the only rider to win the Grand Slam title, Michael Whitaker, Bertram Allen, Edwina Tops-Alexander and Harrie Smolders, who is competing on home turf.
Unfortunately world number one Kent Farrington, who won the Rolex Grand Prix at CHI Geneva in November, won’t be competing. He broke his leg in a fall at the Winter Festival in Florida last month.
This year there is even more at stake, as the addition of the Dutch Masters comes with another massive bonus. Any rider who wins the Rolex Grand Slam, and then goes on to win a fourth Major in succession, will be rewarded an additional €1million bonus.
Other prizes include €500,000 to any rider who wins two successive grand prix, while €250,000 will go to the rider who achieves two grand prix wins, within a period of four successive Majors.
With such big money up for grabs, there is everything to play for making the Rolex Grand Prix from the Dutch Masters unmissable TV.
