Our series of highlights shows returns this week with a look back at the tour's first 2019 visit to Europe, to the stunning grass arena of Club de Campo Villa de Madrid in the heart of the Spanish capital. Re-live all the best moments from the Longines Global Champions Tour and GCL of Madrid 2019 this week, available to watch now on demand!
This elegant venue forms a key hub for equestrianism and is a well-known venue in the city, with excellent equestrian facilities and two golf courses, including one designed by the late Seve Ballesteros. Such a unique venue married elite level competition and the glamour of world-class show jumping together, only a few kilometres from the famous monuments and architecture of Madrid including the Plaza de Cibeles.
11 riders made it through to a strong jump-off in this competitive event, and it was down to last-drawn Martin Fuchs to snatch the top honours with his careful horse Chaplin, beating Maikel Van Der Vleuten into second place. The GCL team competition was down to the wire, with several teams performing well, and an epic battle between London Knights and New York Empire in a breathtaking race to the top spot.
