Eight of the world’s top 10 riders will head to Al Shaqab, Qatar, for the climatic end to the 2017 Longines Global Champions Tour and Global Champions League.

The event, set to take place between November 9-11, will host the battle for the final, overall rankings after a season of top sport.

“In the Global Champions Tour, the level is very, very high because we have the best horses and the best riders in the world. A higher level is not possible,” commented Harrie Smolders of The Netherlands. Smolders made history this year by winning the LGCT title ahead of the final in Rome.

In the Global Champions League race to the finish line, teams are tactically fielding heavy-weight combinations for the final push for the overall ranking and season prize money. The Hamburg Diamonds and Valkenswaard United will lock horns for the final time this year after an intensive duel throughout the season. Other teams will be jostling for an overall GCL Top Ten finish.

The finals will play out on the grand stage of Al Shaqab, a member of the Qatar Foundation. The schedule, starer lists, and results will be posted here.
