Riders Masters Cup
The great team event of the winter season. A clash of the titans, a challenge between the two world powers of show jumping: Europe and the United States. Throughout the history of modern jumping, the two continents have divided almost all the titles of the world between them. The war was waged indirectly and sometimes arbitrated by other nations. With the Riders Masters Cup, it's a direct confrontation. Teams of five riders, one of whom must be under 25, are selected by Bob Ridland for the United States and Philippe Guerdat, coach of the reigning Olympic champion team, for Europe. Two rounds of five direct duels with a winner and a loser, with the coaches choosing the opponents in turn. An event in which strategy plays a key role, as seen in the first two editions in Paris and New York. For the moment, the score is 2-0 to Europe).
