The relationship between Longines and equestrian sports has always been a beautiful affair, as the watchmaker is the official partner for a staggering 44 (yep, count ’em) equestrian events, mostly racing and show jumping. The company’s equestrian partnerships have a reputation not only for world-class competition but for elegance as well. (And for most of us lay equestrians, they’re also known for making epic equestrian-themed commercials as well.)

The tour will host 15 events in 13 countries on three continents in 2015, kicking off the tour in less than two weeks in Miami Beach.
