Louis Koninckx, designer of the first Riders Masters Cup

EEM and the European Equestrian Federation (EEF) are pleased to partner with Louis Koninckx for the first edition of the Riders Masters Cup which will be held on Saturday, December 2nd in Paris, Nord Villepinte. He becomes the first designer of this new and innovative competition opposing  the two world powers of international showjumping: the United States vs. Europe.

Christophe Ameeuw and his team at EEM are constantly seeking innovation and are determined to bring equestrian sports to the forefront of the world arena. With this goal in mind, they have decided, in partnership with EEF, to work with one of the circuit’s finest international course designer, Louis Koninckx. Well-known for his technical abilities as well as combining finesse and precision in his creations. Thus chosen for these qualities, he undertook events such as the CHIO of Rotterdam, the CHI of Bois-le-Duc “The Dutch Masters” or yet the Longines FEI World Cup Finale of Gothenburg in 2015 - not to mention numerous FEI Longines Nations Cup. Today, he is at the center of attention with his role as Course Designer of the Longines FEI European Championships of Gothenburg.

Louis Koninckx exceeds the expectation for the Riders Masters Cup, by recreating a ground-breaking parkour  that will challenge the American and European elite riders. He puts his name to the revolution imagined by EEM’s team, in partnership with the EEF.

The first edition of the Riders Masters Cup will be held as part of the Longines Masters of Paris on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017. This is a unique and uniting competition which will proudly uphold the equestrian sports team spirit of equestrian sports.
