With the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Final in Gothenburg, Sweden now over, focus is shifting 9,400 km southwest to Mexico City for the second leg of the 2019 Longines Global Champions Tour and Global Champions League. 51 elite riders and 99 horses from 22 nations will be at the iconic Campo Marte venue in the Mexican capital from April 11–13 for the CSI5* show jumping competition.

And this year, the action promises to be intense in the arena, with many of the best horse-and-rider combinations in the world facing off on course designer Javier Trenor Paz’s tracks. Those entered include Great Britain’s 2018 Tour champion Ben Maher, 2018 Mexico Grand Prix winner Scott Brash, Michael Whitaker and William Whitaker. Five rivals from Ireland are also in town: Bertam Allen, Shane Breen, Michael Duffy, Denis Lynch and Shane Sweetnam.
