Scott Brash, Ben Maher and Ludger Beerbaum will all be competing in Peking – as will the European Champion Roger-Yves Bost and his compatriots Pénélope Leprevost and Kevin Staut. Marco Kutscher, Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, Jane Philips Richard, Laura Kraut and Nick Skelton will also jump at the event.

The development of the equestrian sport in China is the focus of the concept that the organisers presented in Peking. "It is about giving the Chinese riders the opportunity to learn from the best," explained Show Director Frank Kemperman in front of around 100 journalists at the "Beijing Pengyuan Horse Club". During the sporting competitions, but also from the discussions, when walking the course together and naturally from the practical tips given. The competitions will be held in the impressive Olympic Stadium the "Bird's Nest" in Peking, the highlight is the "Longines Grand Prix" on the final Sunday.

The interest shown by the media has never been so great. For example, the biggest Chinese TV channel CCTV will be broadcasting the "Longines Grand Prix" live on Sunday, Eurosport will also be broadcasting live in Europe.
