Rolex Grand Slam

Rolex Grand Slam

The CHI Geneva is one of the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping competitions. This concept unites four of the most prestigious and historic equestrian shows – the CHIO Aachen (GER), the Spruce Meadows "Masters" of Calgary (CAN), The Dutch Masters of 's-Hertogenbosch (NED) and the CHI Geneva – brought together by a shared passion of the sport, excellence and respect of tradition.

These events have been the riders firm favourites for years and are the Majors constituting the Grand Slam of Show Jumping. A Grand Slam henceforth comprising four legs, just like those of tennis and golf.

As of today, Scott Brash is the only rider to have won the Grand Slam, which he managed between December 2014 and September 2015 with Hello Sanctos.
