Stay At Home Special: GCTV Replay - GCL Madrid 2019

We bring you another in our Stay At Home Special series this week, with our GCTV Replay of the GCL R2 of Madrid 2019. Stunning show jumping action took place in the heart of the Spanish capital, at the Club de Campo Villa de Madrid. The expansive grass arena at this exclusive country club played host to the best riders and horses in the world, with nail-biting action from start to finish in the GCL team competition. The Club de Campo Villa de Madrid is a well-known venue in the city and an important hub for those passionate about equestrianism, and brought together elite level competition and the glamour of world-class show jumping in the historic Spanish capital. 

 

A fraction of a second split the fortunes of the top two teams in the GCL of Madrid with the London Knights and New York Empire battling to the end in a nail-biting finish. The home team Madrid In Motion, owned by Marta Ortega, fielded father and son Eric and Maikel van der Vleuten and the reliable combination pulled off a third place on the podium to the delight of the local crowd. All three teams on the podium kept impressive clean sheets in both rounds of the GCL competition.
