For the second time the famous beach (and celebrity hotspot ) of Pampelonne in Saint-Tropez was the place to be for those who love luxury and equestrian topsport. Greek billionaire girl Athína Onassis and her Brazilian husband Doda De Miranda hosted the “Longines Athína Onassis Horseshow“, an exceptional event where the world’s best riders and many impassioned celebrities competed.
Only a few steps away from the beach and under the brights sun, the Longines Athína Onassis Horseshow featured two different levels of competition for a total of 561 000€ in prize money. The world’s best riders and horses competed in the 5 classes of the CSI5* all valid for the Longines ranking. Also 9 classes were dedicated to amateur riders competing in the CSI2*. A total of 60 riders and +- 120 horses were attending the show, representing more than 20 countries.
The luxury feeling already started at the entrace, were all kind of exclusive cars were parked. The stylish decor and summer vibes made you feel like you are on a lifetime holiday.
Let’s talk celebrities, the 2 most remarkable persons were for sure Bruce Springsteen (who’s daughter was competing @jessicaspringsteen) and Mister Giorgio Armani, who was sponsoring the event. (photocredit@longinesaohs)
