Michael Whitaker is the only British rider to have qualified for a new show jumping class, which will see the top 10 riders in the FEI/Gandini World Riders Rankings go head-to-head in Geneva, Switzerland on 8 December.
The top 10 riders who have qualified for the event are:
- Ludger Beerbaum (GER)
- Ludo Philippaerts (BEL)
- Rodrigo Pessoa (BRA)
- Lars Nieberg (GER)
- Willi Melliger (SUI)
- Markus Fuchs (SUI)
- Franke Sloothaak (GER)
- Rolf-G”ran Bengtsson (SWE)
- Michael Whitaker (GBR)

The “Top 10 Final” will be held over two rounds, without jump-off, and riders may chose to ride the same or different horse in each round. Penalty points from the two rounds will be added together to find the winner. The time of the second round will decide the winner in the case of a tie.
Sponsored by Rolex, the FEI/Gandini Top Ten Final winner will take home SF140,000 – around £35,000.
