The curtain falls on the Summer Tour at Montenmedio with a Dutch victory in the Grand Prix

Over the past three weeks here at the’ Montenmedio Summer Tour,’ almost 190,000€ in prize money has been distributed. The installations that hold the annual Sunshine Tour, have easily adapted for this Summer Tour with all sanitary and security protocols running smoothly. The installations will now be prepared for the Autumn Tour that will run from the 10th of September until the 29th of November, 2020, and will be made up of a total of 6 competitions.


The Autumn Tour will be divided in to three blocks of competition, each comprising of two weeks and comprise of two, CSI3*s and CSIYH* events. Between each of the two week blocks of competition, there will be one week of rest.


Montenmedio is a superb place to both enjoy the competition facilities and atmosphere and to relax and explore the unique surrounding area of Vejer de la Frontera with easy access to many other wonderful attractions. At this time of the year the weather is very pleasant and ideal to explore the local countryside, towns like Cadiz, Jerez and Seville and the wonderful beaches of Conil, Barbate, Zahara de Los Atunes and Caños de Meca, all of which makes this competition in to a dream location for a relaxing vacation.


After arriving just this week with two of his horses, the winner of the last Grand Prix of the Tour, was the Dutch rider, Henk van de Pol with LOOYMAN Z (NUMERO UNO x WELLINGTON).
