This week, eight out of the world’s Top Ten riders will be heading to Shanghai, China for the third leg of the Longines Global Champions Tour and Global Champions League season where an impressive €1,250,000 of prize money will be on offer over the weekend. 

The LGCT of Shanghai is in its fourth year running, breaking records by being one of the first major equestrian events in the heart of China and bringing top sport to new audiences. 

World no. 2 Kent Farrington (USA) will head to China following a successful weekend in Miami Beach where the top American rider took a home win in front of a passionate, packed-out crowd. Looking to be on phenomenal form, he’ll be fending off the likes of Daniel Deusser (GER), Christian Ahlmann (GER), Kevin Staut (FRA) and Scott Brash (GBR) - a rider who is extremely popular with the Chinese fans. Another local favourite, multiple Olympian and living legend Ludger Beerbaum (GER) will also return to the LGCT Shanghai, where he’ll be on target to battle it out against the world’s best for the €500,000 Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Shanghai.

Other big names on the entry list include Ben Maher (GBR), Gerco Schröder (NED), John Whitaker (GBR), Max Küher (AUT), Maikel van der Vleuten (NED), Lauren Hough (USA), Nicola Philippaerts (BEL), Laura Kraut (USA), Marco Kutscher (GER), Sheikh Ali Bin Khalid Al Thani (QAT), Henrik von Eckermann (SWE) and Julien Epaillard (FRA).
