FISAN at the Longines Show Jumping Global Champions Tour
The Longines Global Champions Tour is considered the ‘Formula 1 of show jumping’; it takes place once again this spring, turning the Spanish capital into a global reference for the sport. This weekend FISAN had the pleasure of being invited to the VIP area of this prestigious championship alongside Grupo Mónico’s catering. The Club de Campo Villa in Madrid, a very exclusive country club, welcomed the elite of the equestrian world: the best horses and mares alongside the most skilled show jumpers of the moment. There were 140 riders and 230 horses in total, among them eight-star show jumpers from the top 10 world ranking, the Olympics and World Championships.
Sport and haute cuisine came together once more
The Club de Campo Villa hosted this 109th edition of the Concours de Saut International (CSI) in Madrid, a city that has been part of the Longines Global Champions Tour for seven years. Not only is it the most highly regarded and internationally renowned equestrian series, but it also has the greatest prize money of any show jumping competition in the world.
Sport and haute cuisine came together once more and the riders and the most VIP guests enjoyed our acorn-fed ham and Iberian products. It was a genuine pleasure to take part once again in this prestigious championship celebrating one of the most elegant sports while adding our own personal gourmet touch.
The Longines GCT is comprised of several show jumping championships at the highest international level around the globe that take place in cities such as Paris, Shanghai, Rome or Vienna. For this last event, it was Madrid’s turn; there FISAN offered Iberian products to the VIP guests: it all turned out perfectly.
