If there’s a theoretical “off-season” in show jumping, the month of December is as close as it’s going to get. And yet, there are still a panoply of four and five-star events to keep a gal’s livestream queue full. In the first weekend of December, we get to see an extensive list of FEI riders at the Longines Masters of Paris, and Wellington begins to really ramp up for their big winter season, starting with the “Holiday and Horses” CSI4* at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.
Longines Masters – Paris CSI5*
We’ll be seeing many of our favorite Americans at this iconic event, including 3/4 of the Olympic team in Lucy Davis, Kent Farrington, and Mclain Ward, as well as fan favorite Lauren Hough. Reed Kessler will be making an appearance in the two-star classes with some of her up-and-comers. They’ll be joined by scores of local French riders, and Olympic team members from Canada, the UK, Germany, Greece, and Belgium. And you can livestream all of it!
Holiday and Horses CSI4*, Wellington
Todd Minikus, Leslie Howard, Jessica Springsteen, Margie Engle, Lauren Tisbo, Hardin Towell, and Tiffany Foster all have horses entered this week, and the show features a $35,000 class every weeknight and the $216,000 Grand Prix on Saturday.
