Rolex enters fourth decade sponsoring Alberta’s Spruce Meadows showjumping grand slam


One of the most prestigious events in the equestrian calendar, the CSIO Spruce Meadows Masters will welcome the world’s top horse and rider combinations from 4–8 September.

Staged in the stunning foothills of the Alberta Rocky Mountains, the competition reaches a  finale on Sunday with the CP International, presented by Rolex.

It is the 30th year that Rolex has partnered with Spruce Meadows, and six years since it introduced the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping, one of the most coveted prize in equestrianism.


Rolex Testimonee Kent Farrington will be one of the hot favorites for the title.

“I’m so excited to be riding at Spruce Meadows this year as the current live contender. It is an extremely tough competition that attracts the best riders from around the world,” Mr Farrington said.

“Rolex has added a new dimension to our sport by supporting the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping. With the 30-year partnership between Rolex and the Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ celebrated this year, it would be even more special to win.”
