The Paris Panthers set their sights on Monaco

The showjumping season is in full swing, and all eyes are on the main event in the Principality of Monaco, which promises to be a thrilling spectacle

It’s midway through the 2022 Global Champions League (GCL) season and The Paris Panthers have arrived at their 10th stop on the tour: Monaco.

Edmiston is proud to sponsor the Paris Panthers, who have just secured their first win of the season on home turf at the GCL Paris, with showjumpers Ben Maher and Darragh Kenny snatching the win from the hands of Jessica Springsteen and Edouard Schmitz of the Miami Celtics.

An elated Darragh Kenny said of the win, “It is a fantastic location and it’s even better to win at home with the Paris Panthers.

The team is now hoping to build on their success as they head to Monaco, one of the smallest arenas on the tour, for the 10th round of action in the Championship.

Paris Panthers Team Manager Rob Hoekstra says: “The team is eager to see top results in the Port Hercules arena, where a highly technical setting will present unique challenges to the horses and riders.

The Global Champions is the most dynamic equestrian sports series in the world and sees the world’s best riders and horses take part in a global circuit that covers 16 destinations and encompasses two thrilling championships: the Longines Global Champions Tour – the ultimate individual challenge – and the GCL, showjumping’s greatest team challenge.

The top four teams in the GCL will be fast tracked through to the GCL Super Cup Semi-Final, so it’s all to play for.

Nestled in the former Formula 1 pit lane, and watched over by superyachts moored in Port Hercules, the Monaco GCL, which takes place from 30 June to 2 July, draws crowds from all around the world.

VIPS, including HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and other members of the Royal Family, as well as sponsors, owners, and riders, will be able to witness the pinnacle of world showjumping in this enchanting Riviera location.

The Paris Panthers will be represented by Olympian Darragh Kenny of Ireland and U25 rising star Ioli Mytilineou of Greece.

Kenny, currently ranked 17th in the world, has made numerous appearances for the Paris Panthers so far this season and is always one to watch, while Mytilineou is the 15th ranked U25 rider globally, and this will be her third appearance for the Paris Panthers team.

Edmiston will be in Port Hercules, supporting the team and hoping they repeat the recent success of Paris.
