The countdown is on to the first event of the 2020 Longines Global Champions Tour and GCL as top riders and teams get ready for the electrifying season opener in one months’ time.


The stars of show jumping will be heading to Qatar for the all-important first leg which takes place at the world class AL SHAQAB equestrian centre in the capital city Doha from 5 to 7 March.


Once again the soaring architecture of the arena will be a magnificent backdrop to top-level show jumping with the first LGCT Grand Prix of the season taking place on Saturday 7 March with all the action from the competition available on GCTV live streaming. 


The first GCL showdown of the year gets underway with teams already selecting their key combinations to get valuable early points on the scoreboard. Team managers will work out their strategies with riders and owners to field the best pairings for the sand arena in Doha which is an expansive120m x 80m where the action takes place under floodlights. 


The LGCT event will take place the week following the exciting CHI AL SHAQAB (27-29 February) at the Longines Arena at AL SHAQAB with participation of top-ranking international and local riders. CHI AL SHAQAB, presented by Longines is one of only five CHI competitions worldwide and the first and only equestrian event of its kind in the Middle East and Asia region.
