The Peninsula of La Magdalena is one of the topographical highlights of the Bay of Santander, the largest estuary in Cantabria. The green track of La Magdalena will dress gala from 7 to 9 July to host its traditional International Show Jumping Competition. After a few years of recession, the competition organized by the sports marketing company OXER SPORT will celebrate its XV edition with a CSI2 * Invitational.
The show presents important novelties with respect to previous years, turning it into a “boutique show”. Due to lack of space, the competition will be reserved only for the most fortunate. A maximum of 120 horses will compete in a unique location, on the edge of the Cantabrian Sea. In addition, both Oxer and the City Council of Santander have been working for months on the green track, making the state of it is unbeatable and being better than ever. It is, without a doubt, one of the important improvements that will make this CSI2 * a different event.
The sports program has a total of nine tests of heights ranging between 1,20m and 1,40m. The CaixaBank Grand Prix will be the ranking test in charge of lowering the curtain and will be held under schedule Jump Off and a maximum height of 1.45m. In addition to the cash prizes, there are special prizes, including several BMW bikes.
The package offered to riders includes: stay in the Real Hotel 5 *, VIP accreditation, meals in the Real Sociedad de Tenis, shuttle service, truck parking or electricity, among other amenities
The event will be supported by CaixaBank, the Government of Cantabria and Santander City Council as the main sponsors.
