The installations that hold the annual Sunshine Tour, have easily adapted for this Summer Tour with all sanitary and security protocols running smoothly. The installations will now be prepared for the Autumn Tour that will run from the 10th of September until the 29th of November, 2020, and will be made up of a total of 6 competitions.

After arriving just this week with two of his horses, the winner of the last Grand Prixof the Tour, was the Dutch rider, Henk van de Pol with LOOYMAN Z (NUMERO UNO x WELLINGTON).
