Grimaud, France, March 18th, 2019 — This spring, the sparkling coastal town of Grimaud will play host to a major new event on the European horse show calendar: the HUBSIDE SPRING TOUR, presented by title sponsor Hubside and presenting sponsor SFAM. Two weeks of show jumping competition, the first running from the 17-21 of April, and the second the 25-28 of April, will include diverse offerings and multiple ranking classes for international riders from across Europe and beyond.
The event will take place at a newly renovated facility designed by event President Mr. Sadri Fegaier, a successful businessman and international show jumper. Week one will feature a range of CSI4*, CSI2* and CSIYH1* classes for professionals and amateurs, including four Longines ranking classes and a €100.000 Grand Prix. Week two will also include four Longines ranking classes, along with CSI2* and CSI4* classes, and a €150.000 Grand Prix.
Esteemed course designer Uliano Vezzani will create tracks for the HUBSIDE SPRING TOUR, with event direction provided by General Manager Denis Monticolo and Sports Director Eleonora Ottaviani. Located in the former Ecurie du Golfe de Saint-Tropez, the competition will be held in a brand new, sprawling 120 x 70 competition arena, accompanied by a 100 x 50 warm-up ring.
Helmed by its towering, 11th century castle and surrounded by lavender fields and rocky outcrops, the sun-drenched commune of Grimaud, in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, is a hidden gem of the French Riviera. Among the region’s highlights: the seaside town of Port Grimaud, less than three miles from the equestrian facilities. Known as the “Little Venice of Provence,” Port Grimaud is renowned for its glittering canals and brightly colored, fisherman-style houses.
In addition to the HUBSIDE SPRING TOUR, the city of Grimaud will host four, top-tier show jumping events throughout the 2019 year, including three international HUBSIDE JUMPING EVENTS in June, and the HUBSIDE FALL TOUR in late September.
The HUBSIDE SPRING TOUR will take place April 17-21, 2019 and April 25-28, 2019. For more information, please visit: www.facebook.com/HubsideJumping/.
