WoSJ Exclusive; Sophie Mottu Morel - show director of the CHI Geneva

E-mail Print PDF

Sophie-M3Sophie Mottu Morel is the show director of the CHI Geneva. This year’s edition of CHI Geneva sees some big changes; can you tell us a little bit about what this year’s version of the event will look like?

"2013 was indeed a year of change for us. After 35 years and due to the new sponsor of the World Cup, we decided to retire from this circuit. It was not an easy decision but it was clear that we would remain loyal to Rolex, our title sponsor for over 17 years. We consequently had to think about something new for our sport. We therefore met with the organisers of Aachen and Spruce Meadows and together created a new concept. The Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping was born. We are so proud to be associated with such great events! Three shows and for the riders the possibility to win a bonus of 1 million of euros, what a big challenge! And of course, thanks to Rolex to have at once supported our idea!

 

In addition to this new class, the spectators will have the opportunity to see classes such as the Credit Suisse Grand Prix, the third Champions' challenge© [a class made in Geneva which gets champions and challengers together], or else the six-bars, a knock-out, a combination class or a relay ponies/horses. And of course, the driving World Cup circuit."
