THE DUTCH MASTERS, THE DUTCH GRAND SLAM

Unfortunately this year the Rolex Grand Slam will not be held in Den Bosh due to the restrictions adopted to fight the spread of the Coronavirus. 

The news came while many horses were already traveling in the direction of the dutch town. But let's read its history and that of his champions. The Dutch Master, held every year at the Indoor Brabant ('s-Hertogenbosh, the Netherlands), joined the 2018 Rolex Grand Slam, the most prestigious and richest show jumping circuit in the world.

Together with Geneva it is one of two events that take place indoors. The other two are Calgary and Aachen.

Since the first horse show organized in 1966 in the Brabanthallen the level of events has risen higher and higher. In 1979 Indoor Brabant started hosting the Show Jumping World Cup, since 1986 also the Dressage World Cup. Since then, as many as 11 finals of the Dressage World Cup have been held there, in 2012 also the Show Jumping final.

The World Cup was held until 2013. The Grand Prix was named after Rolex the following year.

In 2018 The Dutch Master joined the Rolex Grand Slam circuit.

How the ROLEX GRAND SLAM works:

The system of the Rolex Grand Slam is simple: anyone who wins three Grand Prix in a row receives the bonus of 1 million euros in addition to the prize money of each show. If the same rider wins a fourth Rolex Grand Prix in succession, he will be rewarded with an additional bonus of 1 million euros. In addition, anyone who wins two of the four events receives a € 250,000 bonus. If two Grand Prix are won in succession, the bonus is 500,000 euros. It is only the rider that counts. The bonus can also be obtained with different horses. This system is infinite, it is not limited to one calendar year. It is an endless story.

Now competing for the new ROLEX GRAND SLAM are Kent Farrington, winner at Aachen 2019 and the two Veredus ambassadors Beezie Madden, winner at Calgary 2019 and Martin Fuchs, winner at Geneva 2019!

The level of the competition is so high that legendary names of show jumping are written in the Hall of Fame of the World Cup and the Rolex Grand Prix.

To honor this important circuit and its champions, Veredus has created the Grand Slam Carbon Gel , a line that has become a real cult. Indeed, not less than seven VEREDUS testimonials have won at least one Grand Prix of this important circuit. Who will be the next? We just have to wait.
