The Longines EEF Series bonuses have been awarded for the top European U25 riders’ performances and the best performances in the Final for the 2023 season.
Across the Regional Qualifiers, nine under-25 combinations recorded a double-clear from six different nations to earn themselves a bonus prize. Rewarding the young riders is part of the ethos of the Longines EEF Series to develop and provide team jumping experiences for the next generation. The riders receive an equal share of the €20,000 fund. The successful riders were:

  • William Ligier de la Prade (FRA) on Galilee owned by SC Artemis
