Ever wondered what it takes to be a Team Manager of a GCL Team? Strategising, discussing, preparing and planning with some of the best riders in the world is just part of it!
As the manager of the Paris Panthers who finished 5th in the 2022 GCL Standings, Rob Hoekstra runs us through what his job looks like while working with some of the best horse and rider combinations in the world.
With the 2022 Paris Panthers team consisting of none other than Gregory Wathelet (BEL), Harrie Smolders (NED), Darragh Kenny (IRE), Nayel Nassar (EGY), 2020 Olympic Champion Ben Maher (GBR) and young talent, U25 Ioli Mytilineou (GRE), a formidable line-up was established... all eyes now look ahead to the impending 2023 GCL Teams Launch. Will the Paris Panthers retain their same team on the starting grid? All will be revealed soon!
My vision is clear. Only the best for the best.
