Longines at CHIO Rotterdam
Dutch rider Marc Houtzager has won the Longines Grand Prix Port of Rotterdam on horse Sterrehof’s Tamino. The US rider Laura Kraut on Cedric was second and French rider Simon Delestre on Napoli Du Roy third. Longines was partner of the CHIO Rotterdam for the seventh time in a row.
CHIO Rotterdam was the fourth stage of the Longines Press Award for Elegance. This prize pays tribute to the most elegant and successful male and female riders of the season. The procedure is as follows: the 20 riders (10 men and 10 women) who have accumulated the most performance points during the 6 Nations Cup events where Longines is a partner are short-listed. In Dublin, the last stage of the Nations Cup, a jury of international journalists will elect the most elegant male and female riders from the short-list.
After four competitions, Penelope Leprevost (FRA, female horseriders category) and Shane Sweetnam (IRL, male horseriders category) are leading the intermediate ranking.
