Indoor Brabant joined the prestigious Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping. Indoor Brabant is the fourth Major in this Grand Slam and joins the three top events CHIO Aachen in Germany, CSIO Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ in Calgary, Canada and CHI Geneva in Switzerland, the home base of Rolex.
“We couldn’t wish for a better partner,” said an enthused Linda Southern-Heathcott, President of the Steering Committee of the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping. “What has always united all the Majors is the passion for the sport, the love for horses and a long tradition of the highest standard. Therefore, Indoor Brabant is a perfect addition to the Rolex Grand Slam; it offers an outstanding infrastructure, has had a long history and attracts the best riders in the world every year.”
Any rider who wins the three Grands Prix of the Rolex Grand Slam will win a bonus of €1 million. If that same rider then continues their success by winning a fourth Major in succession, they will be rewarded with an additional €1 million bonus. A bonus of €500,000 is also available to any rider who wins two successive Grands Prix in any order.
Logo and expansion
This 'upgrade' asks for a new logo and a new name: Indoor Brabant The Dutch Masters. Indoor Brabant is still growing and therefore it was decided to built another hall which will carry the name of Gerrit Jan Swinkels, the former show president who unfortunately deceased in May 2015. The Indoor Brabant The Dutch Masters will be organised from 8 till 11 March 2018.
