The Global Champions Tour and Nations Cup contests are winding down after a whirlwind spring and summer for the FEI riders, and riders will have a slew of options for some five-star fun around the world.

This week our spotlight is focused on Valence, France, where Beezie Madden, Kent Farrington, and Reed Kessler have all set up shop at the Haras Des Grillons Jumping de Valence CSI 5*, with some of their best and up-and-coming mounts in tow.

Just shy of a million euros will be doled out this week, and a Mercedes Benz will be won by the best rider of the show.

You can watch the live stream free, which will feature not only our American friends but also beloved foreign characters like Christian Ahlmann, Roger Yves Bosty, Eric Lamaze, Ben Maher, John Whitaker and Janika Sprunger.

Here’s all the links you’ll need for a spectacular vicarious weekend in France!

Meanwhile, we’ve also got Americans hard at work at the CSI 5* in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Nations Cup Dublin heroine Laura Kraut is there with her team, as well as Chloe Reid, Paris Sellon, and Katherine Dinan.

Certainly one of the most picturesque venues in the world, St. Moritz will not only treat riders and spectators to some fresh Swiss Alps air, but also more than $3 million in prize money when it’s all said and done.

St. Moritz also sports a free live stream this week, catch the action below!
