Lugano Diamonds is proud to announce it is the new Title Sponsor for the “Lugano Diamonds Split Rock Jumping Tour,” an internationally attended equestrian jumping event hosted in the U.S. The first stop of the Tour took place at Kentucky Horse Park, a venue that welcomes 500,000 visitors from around the world each year.
To celebrate the partnership, Lugano Diamonds hosted an exquisite dinner at the Apiary in Lexington, KY. Guests included former governor of Kentucky, Steven Beshear and his wife, many of the founding members of the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation, and notable equestrians.
Week One Winner
The first week of the Tour culminated in an exciting lineup with the $100,000 Lugano Diamonds 1.55m Grand Prix CSI3* presented by Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, where Shawn Casady rode to the top spot with Rabbit Root Stables LLC’s Ekstra MF (Verithy x Diamant de Semilly).
Week Two Winner
The Tour capped off two weeks of hunter, jumper, and equitation competition with the biggest event – the $100,000 Lugano Diamonds 1.55m Grand Prix CS CSI3*, presented by Hagyard Equine Medical Group. Molly Ashe Cawley (USA) was the only athlete to emerge with a clear first round riding Louisburg Farm’s Cappuccino 194 to the victory without the need for a second round tiebreaker.
