EEF Rider Masters Cup

The Riders Masters Cup is an innovative showjumping competition between the two major equestrian powers: The Americas and Europe.

The fifth edition of the Riders Masters Cup took place on Friday December 6 2019, Paris.

How it works?

A spectacular and strategic competition, the Riders Masters Cup will pit five American riders against five European riders in ten duels of a two-round class.

The first round is played as table table A of a Grand Prix course. The starting order and the composition of the duels are drawn at random. Each duel won in this round brings 10 points to the winning team.

The second round is against the clock where the strategy and choices of team leaders are paramount. During this round, riders are allowed to switch from a Grand Prix horse to a horse that may be more prepared for speed. The coach of the losing team in the first round designates his first rider to go and the winning team has the advantage of choosing his first direct opponent. It then switches for the next round. Each duel that is won accumulates 20 points for the winning team.
