Peden make history in China!

4th June 2014

Peden Bloodstock is very proud to have safely shipped The World’s Greatest Elite Level Show Jumping Horses to Mainland China to compete in the 4th leg of the 2014 Longines Global Champions Tour in Shanghai.

The arrival of these wonderful horses signifies a huge landmark achievement for both Peden and the future of the Equestrian Sports Horse World.

Peden has successfully negotiated changes to the Quarantine Laws between EU and China which have allowed these horses to travel to China and will uniquely allow them to return back to Europe after Competing in this Prestigious Global Event in Shanghai. See our previous article Peden Opens Shanghai's Borders to international Horse Sport.

The horses arrived into Shanghai over the weekend on two specially chartered Fedex Aircraft accompanied by their own grooms and our own highly experienced professional flying grooms Richard Picken, George Roth, Darren Plumb and John McGregor.

They were met in Shanghai by Peden's own specialised Operational Team and quickly transferred to the newly constructed venue at the world famous China Art Pavillion within the city's World Expo Park site.

The LGCT Organising Committee have re-located to China over recent weeks and have done an incredible job building the beautiful venue and preparing for this exciting top class competition.  

The Longines Global Champions Tour of Shanghai (6-8 June) will offer a record US$2 million in prize money to some of the top names in show jumping over three days of CSI5* competition. The LGCT of Shanghai Grand Prix, the fourth round of the prestigious official FEI show jumping series, will have a prize fund of US$1.1million, with a massive US$363,000 going to the winner.
