To invite the best horse riders to compete in fourteen of the most beautiful cities around the world: that's the heart of the Longines Global Champions Tour. In 2013, Longines and this prestigious show jumping trial series concluded a long-term partnership. The Swiss watch brand has also become the Official Partner and Timekeeper for the Longines Global Champions Tour, thus opening up a new chapter in the history of equestrian sport. This agreement illustrates the seriousness of Longines' dedication to five-star outdoor show jumping events and perfectly represents the values and traditions shared by both parties.
On Saturday 15 November 2014, Rolf-Göran Bengtsson on Casall Ask won the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Doha, one of the highlights of this stage. He therefore received an elegant Longines watch.
As the Doha leg marked the end of the season, the results obtained by the riders enabled the establishment of the final 2014 overall Longines Global Champions Tour Ranking classification. Scott Brash (UK) was declared winner of the Longines Global Champions Tour 2014, while Rolf-Göran Bengtsson (Sweden) arrived second and Ludger Beerbaum (Germany) third. To honour their successes, all three received distinguished Longines watches from the hands of Mr. Charles Villoz, Vice President of Longines.
