“Higher and higher”. That could be EEM’s motto and the very principle of this ‘high jump’ event. Called “Six Bars” … six vertical obstacles sit two strides away from each other and increase in height after each clear round. On the Longines Masters competition track, four vertical obstacles are aligned for an exciting show. In Paris in 2017, the last bar reached 2m.
This is still far below what a horse is capable of since the world record that dates back to 1949 was 2.47m. That horse horse was the small 1.68m Chilean thoroughbred named “Huaso”. Thus, in order to win the Masters Power, you have to jump higher and higher. Power and entertainment guaranteed!
All the riders reaching more than 2.05m can win an exceptional 10 000€ bonus!
