Description

Show jumping enjoys a long-standing tradition in St. Moritz, the equine sports capital of the Alps. Among the most anticipated events is the annual Concours Hippique on snow, where spectators enjoy being unusually close to the horses and their riders. For those not familiar with the sport it could be a bit confusing, but essentially competitors are judged on their ability to complete an obstacle course of jumps and in some instances the style with which do so. More than anything it is impressive to see the unprecedented combination of strength and grace demonstrated by the horses and their riders.
