The Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping is a global initiative created in 2013. It comprises the four equestrian Majors: The Dutch Masters (which completed the quartet in 2018), the CHIO Aachen, the CSIO Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ Tournament and the CHI Geneva.
Widely regarded as the ultimate show jumping challenge, the Rolex Grand Slam is the most coveted prize in the sport, rewarding the rider who wins the Grand Prix at three of these shows in succession. To date, Scotland’s Scott Brash is the only competitor to achieve the feat, having done so in 2014–2015.
