As the final event of a competitive season, the Children’s International Classics, is an opportunity for youth to go for the gold. Thirty-two Gold Tour qualifiers, comprised of some of the top twelve to fourteen year olds from around the world, will meet in Guadalajara to compete on borrowed horses. Sixteen of the thirty-two will represent the host country of Mexico, and the other sixteen will be international competitors. The host riders will each provide two horses, which will then be assigned via a draw. The action will commence with two training sessions and a warm-up, then riders will participate in two qualifying rounds that will determine the order of the classic rounds on Saturday. An exciting opportunity for these young competitors. The Final Competition will include the top sixteen, and all participants will restart with zero points.

The horse show proudly embraces the support of numerous internationally acclaimed sponsors that infuse the event with quality and class. Longines, the Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the FEI, generously lends its supports as the title sponsor.
