Team Qatar to participate in Global Champions Tour in Madrid

Madrid, Qatar’s Sheikh Ali bin Khalid Al Thani and Bassem Hassan will participate in the 5th leg of Longines Global Champions Tour to be staged in Madrid.

From 17th – 19th May, the very best riders will continue their campaign in the world’s premier show jumping series, heading to the beautiful destination of Club de Campo Villa de Madrid where thousands of spectators will be treated to a dazzling display of top class sport and entertainment across three days.

Previous winners of the LGCT Grand Prix of Madrid will also be out for glory, with Ben Maher (GBR), Marcus Ehning (GER) and Luciana Diniz (POR) all lining up in the starting box and flexing their muscles in preparation for a venue they know and love. But it’s set to be a thriller of an event, with plenty of big names to throw into the mix, including the likes of Scott Brash (GBR), Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS), Henrik von Eckermann (SWE), Peder Fredricson (SWE), Martin Fuchs (SUI), Ludger Beerbaum (GER), Malin Baryard-Johnsson (SWE), Jerome Guery (BEL), Julien Epaillard (FRA), Lauren Hough (USA), Maikel and Eric van der Vleuten (NED), Jessica Springsteen (USA), Alberto Zorzi (ITA), Laura Kraut (USA), Nayel Nassar (EGY), Michael Whitaker (GBR) and Pius Schwizer (SUI) just a handful of A-listers in action.
