Some of the best riders in the world have already jumped in the green arena of the Club de Campo Villa de Madrid, including Top Ten No. 1 Kent Farrington, preparing the big test of tomorrow, the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Madrid. On the track, some riders are well known to Madrid fans for their past victories at this track, such as Scott Brash, Laura Kraut or the new winner of the Longines GCT Madrid Grand Prix in 2016, Marcus Ehning.
55 pairs have participated in the fourth test of the Madrid International Show Jumping, the Iberdrola Trophy. Bassem Mohammed has been proclaimed winner of the Iberdrola Trophy by snatching his newly-inaugurated lead from rider Daniel Bluman, who has finally finished third. The second position has been for one of the last horsemen on the track, Julien Epaillard, who has remained on the verge of victory. The Frenchman has moved to the fourth position to Spanish Gonzalo Añón who, with a magnificent performance and a time of 29.67, was third until the Epaillard tour.
Añón and Paola Amilibia have been the only Spanish representatives with zero points in this international event that has been disputed in two phases, with scale A and height 1.45 ms.
