Sizzling Saint Tropez set for dramatic 5th leg of Longines Global Champions Tour 2022

For the eighth year the Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show, the 5th leg of the Longines Global Champions Tour, is returning to Ramatuelle’s renowned Pampelonne Beach, from 19 to 21 May 2022, where glamour and very high-level sport will go hand in hand.

Athletes are preparing for breathtaking competition in the sun-soaked destination which is synonymous with elegance and style. With brand new changes to the event for 2022 including a renewed configuration of our glamorous LAOHS shopping village, a stunning new atmospherical “Piazza,” with its central champagne meeting bar open from sunrise to sunset and a Saint Tropez-style “after-party” each day featuring international DJs and exciting live performances, the show is going to be an unmissable weekend!

In May the sparkling Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show will see the world’s top horses and riders head to the legendary Pampelonne Beach with its turquoise waters and enviable blue skies. In total, a hundred riders and nearly 200 horses are expected, representing more than twenty nations.

Three intensive days of top sport will be ready to greet equine enthusiasts and show jumping fans everywhere as they relax and enjoy this one-a-kind venue on the French Riviera. An exclusive spectator experience from start to finish, the Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show provides a showcase for many of the globe’s most recognized riders as they compete to win unprecedented prize money and coveted points.

This year’s schedule boasts six CSI 5* classes on tracks imagined by Grégory Bodo, the French course designer, including the famous LGCT Grand Prix of Ramatuelle/Saint-Tropez and both rounds of GCL, the team competition.
