The world number one Scott Brash went head-to-head with the world number two Ludger Beerbaum in the jump-off for the Longines Global Champions Tour grand prix in London on Saturday (16 August).

Watch the two riders battle it out against the clock at Horse Guards Parade Ground, where the Scotsman powered round to claim the €148,500 top prize.

“This sort of horse doesn’t come around too often. It’s all down to him that I’m standing here today,” said Scott.

The president of the LGCT, Jan Tops, complimented the 28-year-old British rider by saying: “Scott knows he can go fast, but he stays very cool with it.”
