Already champion of the 2018 Longines Global Champions Tour heading into this weekend’s final leg in Doha, Qatar, British show jumping star Ben Maher and his mount Explosion W doubled their success with a win by their London Knights squad in the Team-based Global Champions League Saturday, capturing the overall season title. And just for good measure, Maher and Explosion W won the Tour Grand Prix.

Speaking about the Doha event at a press conference in Qatar this week, LGCT Founder Jan Tops stated that, “It’s very important for us to be in this place [Qatar], in this part of the world. I think we have a great relationship built through the years and all the riders come to Qatar to compete in this magnificent arena.” Commenting on the cutting-edge, horseshoe-shaped Al Shaqab site, Tops added: “From the stabling to the arena, everything is horse-minded.”
