The 6th Edition of the Longines Masters of Hong Kong
One of the most prestigious equestrian events featuring the world’s 30 best riders, the Longines Masters Series brought the “Grand Slam of Indoor Show Jumping” to Hong Kong.
At the 6th edition of the Longines Masters of Hong Kong, after the Paris edition and before the next stop in New York, the action-packed event was an all-around exclusive experience.
From start to finish, the shows brought thrills until the very last moment. In the event’s finale, the Longines Grand Prix, twenty riders from twelve countries battled it out for the title over two rounds with 1.60m obstacles.
With milliseconds between them, Patrice Delaveau of France seized victory on Aquila HDC from Max Kühner of Austria on Cielito Lindo 2 by just 0.07 seconds.
In the midst of enthralling competition between the globe’s top showjumpers and horses, as well as premier entertainment, shopping, art and gastronomy, the 2018 Longines Masters of Hong Kong was unforgettable.
One of the highlights of Hong Kong’s social and cultural calendar, named the ‘Best Live Experience at a Professional Sport Event,’ it is no wonder that this event welcomed VIPS from around the world.
