The World Champions League is one of the highlights on this year’s equestrian sports calendar. The GCL has been staged for the sixth time, and is a spring assembly of high-profile passengers. The best riders ride their best horses in some of the biggest events around the world. The initial opening of the GCL will take place in Doha, Qatar, from 4 to 6 March. The event will follow in Shanghai (30.04.-02.05.2021), then the series will head to Europe, where Madrid will host the third of 16 events.
The New York Empire has a very strong squad this year – as usual – Scott Brash (UK), Dennis Lynch (Ireland) and their compatriot Shane Bryn will wave the New York Empire flag alongside Daniel Plowman and star Spencer Smith.
