For the third year the phenomenal AL SHAQAB equestrian facility in Doha, Qatar, will be the stage for the electrifying opening leg of the 2021 Longines Global Champions Tour and GCL season. The launchpad to the 2021 season at AL SHAQAB, part of Qatar Foundation, will welcome top international horses and riders from around the world. Founded by His Highness the Father Emir, this spectacular venue will see the best athletes in the world kick-start their campaign for the prestigious LGCT and GCL titles, as riders and teams battle for supremacy in the Championship series.
