    Default Global Champions Tour - Finals

    Didn't see a thread on this ... the Finals of the Global Champions Tour in Abu Dhabi are live on the GCT site (http://www.globalchampionstour.com/gct-live)

    Finishing up Round One now ... the class has 2 Rounds and a Jumpoff.

    Sure thing, skydy! Except, now the 2nd Round is 'not available' for me (Boston location).

    Because Show Jumping is such a hot ticket I guess. Hope others can watch it.

    Laura & Cedric were the only US pair in the Finals, and they had 5 faults and won't make it to the 2nd Round.

    Sorry, for some reason I can't edit last post. GCT tweeted that Edwina won the tour title, despite where she finishes in GP.
    EDDIE WOULD GO

    Roger-Yves Bost (Bosty) won the final of the GCT after an exceptional jump-off.

    He is the living proof that classical style is not a requirement for a top rider.
    He has always a very special bond with his horses, have an exceptional "feeling" and is able to stay in balance whatever the situation.

    His international successes started in the late 80's and he was part of the French team who won Gold at the WEG in Stockholm in 1990.

    He is still a winner today.

    Here is an example of a jump-off (he is also known as Bosty la fusée, meaning Bosty the rocket)
    Bordeaux WC qualifier.
