The young Swiss prodigy of show jumping Bryan Balsiger joins the Longines Family

The Swiss watchmaking brand Longines is proud to announce that the young prodigy of show jumping Bryan Balsiger joins the Longines Family as a Friend of the Brand.

 

Born into a family of riders who runs an equestrian centre in Corcelles, Switzerland where he grew up, horse riding seemed an obvious choice for Bryan who took up the reins for the first time when he was just 5 years old. Having discovered a real source of inspiration from his family, today alongside his father who is also his trainer, Bryan is developing his career.

 

At the young age of 23, the talented rider already has an impressive track record of victories. After becoming the European Young Riders champion in 2017 in Samorin, Slovakia, he made his debut in the Elite category in 2018 and claimed victory at the Swiss Championship in Humlikon. He then joined the Swiss team the same year and took part in the Final of the Longines FEI Jumping Nations CupTM in Barcelona. The following year with the same team he won one of the qualifying stages of this competition in La Baule before achieving a memorable victory on Clouzot de Lassus at the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ in Oslo. These excellent results also allowed him to enter the Top 100 best riders of the Longines Rankings and qualify for prestigious Final of the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ in Las Vegas, which unfortunately was unable to take place this spring.%break% 

 

Bryan Balsiger comments: “I’m really proud to join the Longines Family. I am honoured to be associated with this brand, which is a major player in equestrian sports and an emblematic company in the region where I grew up. I’ll make sure to proudly represent Longines with its values of performance and precision that are essential to my life as an athlete.”
