New York, NY – A heavyweight line-up of American show jumping stars will be among a world-class international field of riders at the Finals of the Longines Global Champions Tour (LGCT) and Global Champions League (GCL) in New York on September 27-29, 2019.
At the event – which offers free admission to the general public – show jumping fans and those new to the sport will be able to witness Olympic hero and former World Number 1 McLain Ward (USA) in action, with the 2007 and 2014 LGCT Grand Prix winner hungry for a podium in New York. Spectators will also be thrilled by big names in the sport close to home, including Olympian and Former World Number 1 Kent Farrington (USA), Georgina Bloomberg (USA), Jessica Springsteen (USA) and Jennifer Gates (USA).
Bloomberg, who is the second highest ranked American rider in the 2019 LGCT Championship, is a born and bred New Yorker and owner of the home city team New York Empire. In a successful season so far, including a sensational win when she competed for her team at the GCL in Valkenswaard only a few weeks ago, the team will undoubtedly be the ones to watch on home turf.
