Countdown to the event

The Longines EEF Series show jumping competition is back for its fourth edition. The summer-long Nations Cup competition will kick off in Italy and continue throughout Europe, where Regional Qualifiers will be held. As it has been the case in previous years, they will be divided into regions: North, Central, West and South. The top five teams from each group will move forward to the Semi-Finals. From these, 10 teams will get promoted to participate in the Grand Final. Longines EEF Series Final will take place on 8th September in Warsaw during the Warsaw Jumping CSIO4* competition at the Służewiec Racecourse 

In 2023, the winners of the Longines EEF Series Nations Cup in show jumping were the faultless Austrians. The previous two years belonged to the Italian team, which will certainly want to fight for the championship again.  

A mix of new and tested venues 

Two new locations will make their debut under the approved calendar. In May, the Dutch Stutteri Ask will host the Central Regional Qualifiers, while the Northern Regional Qualifiers will be held in Luxembourg in June. The Series’ calendar also includes venues that have been tried and tested in previous editions. Budapest will return as an organiser, hosting one of the Semi-Finals. The second Semi Final will be once again held in Deauville.  

For another year in a row, the Final of the Longines EEF Series will take place in the surroundings of the unique architecture of Warsaw’s Służewiec Racecourse, during the Warsaw Jumping competition. The event will begin on 5th September (Thursday) and last until 8th September (Sunday). 

 “The show in Warsaw has grown and has improved rapidly in the past three years, it has now become a point of reference for riders and federations. The organizing efficiency has been noted by sponsors and other organisers that have taken inspiration from Warsaw Jumping for their events. It is a great pleasure and an honour for me to work with this new and young team. Mainly because there is no shortage of enthusiasm and desire to improve year after year, a fundamental aspect for the good outcome of an event such as the EEF Series Final,” said Eleonora Ottaviani, member of the Board of the European Equestrian Federation. 

Goal: development of European equestrianism 

Longines, which is the title sponsor of the Series, has supported it since its inception. The Longines EEF Series creates new opportunities for national federations to participate in team competitions, supports the development of horses and riders, and helps identify top talents. The Series also supports young riders by requiring all teams to include at least one rider from the U25 category. Riders who clear the parkour in both rounds in the Regional Qualifiers will be additionally rewarded with a cash bonus.  

Another partner of the Longines EEF Series is KEP Italia, one of the leaders in equestrian helmet manufacturing. The company became an official Partner for Safety last year. By cooperating with the EEF, KEP Italia aims to protect riders along with supporting the development of the sport. 

This year, for the second time, the organisers have announced the Longines EEF Series Horse of the Year competition. Nominations will open after the Semi-Finals, and horses that will have competed in at least two competitions in the Series will be eligible for the award. The winner will be announced at a special decoration ceremony during the Final in Warsaw.
