Before this weekend’s Longines Grand Prix in Beijing, international showjumpers visited the Great Wall together with some of the Chinese competitors.

The riders in the Longines Equestrian Beijing Masters visited the Great Wall with some of the Chinese competitors. They include the current world top three ranked riders Scott Brash and Ben Maher of Britain, and Germany’s Ludger Beerbaum.

The two British showjumpers already clocked up the fastest times in the descent on the summer toboggan run after the hour-long walk along the Wall. In Peking, it is not just about who wins the Masters, the main focus lies on the development of the equestrian sport in China.

In addition to the sport and the supporting programme, a great deal of know-how is also being conveyed in workshops or while walking the course together with the top Chinese riders. The event is being supported by the Aachener Reitturnier GmbH.
