John Whitaker triumphs at the Longines Grand Prix!


June 05, 2016

Last Saturday, the best riders in the world came together on the course of the Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show for the Longines Grand Prix: a two-round
trial with obstacles (1.60 m). John Whitaker was the last onto the course, and was encouraged by the lively Saint-Tropez crowd. He gave them an exceptional show and took the lead over the younger riders. He won the trial in 36.17 seconds, relegating Christian Ahlmann to second place. Simon Delestre also made the podium. He was named best rider of the show following the three days of competitions.

Longines was proud to be the Title Partner and Official Timekeeper of the Longines Athina Onassis Horse Show for the third year running. On this occasion, the Swiss watch brand presented the Official Watch of the event, a Longines DolceVita model, which is worn by women who know how to make the most of life’s simple pleasures.
