The Jumping International Officiel de France in La Baule
The Jumping International Officiel de France in La Baule (France), where Longines was the official partner and timekeeper for the seventh year in a row, lived up to the expectations last weekend. The prestigious Grand Prix Longines de la Ville de La Baule was awarded to Eric Lamaze (CAN) riding Hickstead followed by Pénélope Leprévost (FRA, 2nd place) riding Mylord Carthago and Carsten Otto Nagel (ALL, 3rd place) riding Corradina. La Baule also marked the first 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 Rotterdam, 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 this first competition, Pénélope Leprévost (female horseriders category) and Eric Lamaze (male horseriders category) are leading the intermediate ranking. The next step will be at the CSIO Piazza di Siena in Rome from 26th to 29th May 2011.
