A statement issued by the Longines Global Champions Tour today has confirmed that the event scheduled for Montreal, Canada in September will not now take place.

The statements says: “The Board of Directors of Le Tour des Champions de Montréal (TCM), the local organiser of the Global Champions Tour of Montreal, made the decision that it is no longer able to ensure the organisation of the event which had planned to be held September 19-22, 2019.

“This decision was taken after a number of consultations with the various parties involved and the necessary conditions were not in place in a timely manner to guarantee the success of the Global Champions Tour of Montreal.

“It is with disappointment that TCM, a non-profit organisation, is withdrawing from the organisation of this event and for which great efforts and resources were put in place to present, in Montreal, an equestrian event of international proportions.”
