In January 2013 it will be that time of year again: the world’s best showjumpers will be competing in Basel, Switzerland’s beautiful city on the Rhine. They and their equally famous horses will face the challenge of the most highly remunerated indoor Grand Prix in the world. Needless to say, this event is eagerly anticipated by spectators, the media and sponsors alike.
The prizes awarded at the 17 events of CSI Basel amount to an incredible total of CHF 900,000, including the amateur events. And that’s not all: nine of the eleven international competitions count towards world rankings, three of them with double points.
A special treat for showjumping enthusiasts will be the 45 competitors in the Grand Prix sponsored by watchmakers H. Moser & Cie, who are the main sponsors of the tournament. The prize money for this event is CHF 450,000 - a sum certain to attract entries from olympic competitors and swiss, european & world champions.
Basel’s St. Jakobshalle provides the perfect venue in every respect: 6000 spectators can enjoy a great view of the course, and the two VIP areas “White Horse Club” and “Black Horse Club” make every jump a special experience. First-class seating is complemented by exclusive culinary delights and a wide choice of equestrian products and services.
An extraordinary show will be provided at the end of the first three days: the french equestrian artist Lorenzo and his dapple greys will give a spectacular and fascinating insight into the abilities of trained horses.
