THE WORLD’S TOP SHOWJUMPERS CON­VERGE ON OUR CITY FOR THE LONGINES HONG KONG MASTERS

Hong Kong Tatler - - Hot Ticket -

Asia’s largest in­ter­na­tional in­door showjump­ing event is back again for the third year run­ning. The top 30 rid­ers and horses from across the globe will be com­pet­ing for a prize pot of US$1 mil­lion at one of the big­gest eques­trian and so­cial events of the year. A skilled hand­ful of rid­ers will be tak­ing home the Hong Kong Jockey Club Tro­phy, the Lai­terie de Mon­taigu Tro­phy, the Mas­simo Dutti Tro­phy and the Gucci Gold Cup. Rid­ers will also com­pete against each other in a speed chal­lenge through a course of 16 fences and a grand prix, which French rider Pa­trice Delaveau won last year. In ad­di­tion to the com­pe­ti­tions is a pro­gramme of ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing horse ini­ti­a­tions and mas­ter classes with the rid­ers, as well as meet-and-greets and au­to­graph ses­sions. Guests will also en­joy re­fresh­ments from Miche­lin-starred es­tab­lish­ments and plenty of en­ter­tain­ment on top of the ex­cit­ing eques­trian events—con­tem­po­rary art ex­hi­bi­tions, fash­ion shows and cham­pagne tast­ings are only the be­gin­ning. Fe­bru­ary 13–15; Asi­aworld-expo; $330–980. WWW.CITYLINE.COM
