We’ve all been looking forward to it and this weekend it’s finally happening: the Longines Global Champions Tour takes off on the European continent. With the leg in Madrid, the battlefield also breaks loose in Europe and for SF Equestrian Bart Bles is on his way to defend the blue colors.

“I’m already looking forward to putting down some nice results,” says Bles. “The Global competitions are competitions of the very highest level so you know as a rider that you will have to put your best foot forward during this competition. I’m all set to jump against the best riders in the world in Madrid this weekend,” he concludes.
