The international programme

With prizemoney amounting to 900,000€ (100,000€ more than in 2021), ten classes with tracks built by world famous chef de piste Uliano Vezzani, four days of jumping in two arenas, grass in Piazza di Siena and sand in the Villa Borghese Galoppatoio, the 89th edition of the Rome Piazza di Siena CSIO presents itself on top form.

International classes start immediately on Thursday May 26th at the Villa Borghese Galoppatoio with a speed class on a course with jumps up to 1.45m (prizemoney 10,000€), followed by two other classes held in the Piazza di Siena grass arena.

The first of the two classes is a competition in two phases presented by MAG and the other instead against the clock presented by ENI is a qualifier for Sunday’s Rome Rolex Grand Prix, with jumps respectively measuring 1.50m and 1.55m (prizemoney 12,000€ and 25,000€).

Friday May 27th will again start at the Galoppatoio with the Small Tour, which for the first time includes a class valid for the FEI Ranking; the day will continue with a class against the clock with a jump off presented by Safe Riding with jumps measuring 1.45m (26,000€) and a class against the clock (jumps at 1.50m and 26,000€ prizemoney) presented by Land Rover at Piazza di Siena paving the way for the prestigious Intesa Sanpaolo Nations Cup. The eagerly awaited two-round team competition (the first class that qualifies riders for the Grand Prix, with prizemoney amounting to 220,000€) will see ten teams battling over courses measuring up to 1.60m.

The programme for Saturday May 28th is also intense and held in the Piazza di Siena oval starting with a 1.45m two phase class (10,000€) presented by KEP Italia.

The other two classes - both presented by Loro Piana - are of a high technical level as well as being spectacular, with the demanding Small Grand Prix, a 1.55m class against the clock with a jump off and 100,000€ prizemoney, followed by the exciting Six Bar Competition (20,000€).

The stage for the grand finale on Sunday May 29th will be reserved entirely to the prestigious and rich Rome Rolex Grand Prix, with prizemoney increased this year to 450,000€.

Fifty horses and riders will compete over two rounds with jumps measuring up to 1.60m with the winner assigned not only victory in what is considered one of the most coveted Grands Prix in the world but also a place in the history of show jumping.
