The Longines Masters CSI5* show jumping series continues this weekend in the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, Hong Kong, as the world’s top sport horses and riders converge on the Asian metropolis for the second leg of the indoor Grand Slam circuit after Paris and before New York. Entertainment, art, fashion and gastronomy also feature at the event, which is the high-profile culmination of Asia Horse Week.

As Tops-Alexander will not be taking part in the 1.60-metre Grand Prix in Hong Kong, she will not be able to pursue the Super Bonus of €2,250,000 for three victories in the same season of the series, but could still later re-enter the race for a €1,000,000 bonus for three straight victories in Longines Grand Prix over two Longines Masters seasons (for example Hong Kong–New York–Paris, or New York–Paris–Hong Kong).

Setting the stage for all the action at the Longines Masters, leading figures in the equestrian world will come together in Hong Kong Thursday and Friday at the second edition of Asia Horse Week for panel discussions and seminars on a range of issues. Created by the competition founder Christophe Ameeuw, Asia Horse Week has rapidly established itself as a major forum to “share experience, exchange knowledge and engage with the key players of the horse world.”
