Michael Whitaker: Payday for Ben Maher *H&H VIP*

Opinion

The outdoor season reached its conclusion last week and hats off to Ben Maher, he’s had a fantastic year. He had already been crowned champion of the Global Champions Tour (GCT) ahead of last week’s final in Doha, but the way he’s riding at the moment you fully expected him to win the last grand prix, too — which he did in style. He is enjoying one of those runs when as a rider you’re full of confidence and it feels as if you can win anything. Explosion W is an exceptional horse, too.
