D-1 before the launch of the seventh edition of the Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show and the third leg of the Longines Global Champions Tour and the Global Champions League.

This afternoon, all the 152 horses successfully passed the vet check. Tomorrow they will be competing in the Ramatuelle/Saint-Tropez show ring. The first horses are expected at 9am for the CSI1* GCTV class. Later on in the day, CSI 5* competitors will have pride of place in the Ramatuelle-L’essence du Sud class, starting at 1.15pm. After this, at 4.15pm, the first round of the Global Champions League will take place.

Two riders from the same team competing for their squad will jump fences standing at 1.50m -1.55m in height.   The scores of the teams in the first round will be taken into account for the second round on Saturday, which will be held before the LGCT Grand Prix.  Tomorrow, the objective will naturally be for both team members to finish their round with the best score possible for the second round on Saturday.

Admission is free of charge on Thursday. All the classes will be broadcast live on GCTV.
