Longines clocks and watches were exhibited eloquently in glowing glass cases adjacent to the equestrian competitions, while Opera Gallery paintings and Gucci accessories were hung close by.

EEM’s passion is bringing equestrian show jumping to the forefront of the International sporting scene. They have showcased jumping in Brussels, Paris, Hong Kong and Los Angeles. The inaugural American leg of the Series was held in Los Angeles, September 25th to 28th, 2014, combining the spectacular sporting action of elite show jumping with the very best lifestyle entertainment.
Recognized by both the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) and the U.S. Equestrian Federation (USEF) as a CSI 5* event, the American leg of the Longines Masters established Los Angeles as a prominent location for the international equestrian scene, a first since the 1984 LA Olympic Games.
