CHI Geneva

Ten riders, just one title !

The world show jumping rankings have been announced, so we now know the top ten riders who will be competing in the Rolex IJRC Top 10 Final on Friday, 13th December at CHI Geneva. Nine men and one woman will line up for this 19th Final, which is already shaping up to be explosive.

At 9.15 pm on Friday, 13th December, all ten riders will be battling to win the 19th Rolex IJRC Top 10 Final. One of the highlights of the Geneva International Horse Show, this competition will feature the top ten riders in the world. For the second year running the lucky home crowd will be doing extra cheering and spurring on, with two Swiss riders currently monopolising the top spots: title holder and world No1 Steve Guerdat and European Champion Martin Fuchs, No2.

The other eight contenders are not ready to throw in the towel though, and their track records all speak volumes. First come the very consistent German rider Daniel Deusser (No3), and the Brit Ben Maher (No4), silver medallist at the last European Championships. Peder Fredricson (No5) from Sweden and Pieter Devos (No6) from Belgium have also confirmed their top ten ranking.

The woman rider in the 19th Rolex IJRC Top 10 Final is American Beezie Madden (No7). Her Spruce Meadows Masters of Calgary Grand Prix win in September also marked the start of her challenge for the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping. Meanwhile, Ireland’s Darragh Kenny (No8) will be taking part in his first Top 10 Final. Also there at the start will be German rider Christian Ahlmann (No9), the Final winner in 2012, and Kent Farrington (No10) who won three years later for the USA. Kent will be standing in for fellow US rider McLain Ward, who will not be crossing the pond in December.

Who can wrest the title from Steve Guerdat and Alamo? The atmosphere in the Palexpo stands will be electric come 9.15 pm on Friday, 13th December and the suspense will be nail-biting. Places will be snapped up very quickly!
