The Palexpo in Geneva will once again play the role of host to the “Titans of Showjumping” during the CHI of Geneva 5*, an event that features two of the most exciting competitions in the sport.
First, the Rolex IJRC Top 10 Final next Friday features 10 of the twelve highest-ranked riders in the world going for a nice jackpot of CHF $465,000.
