Ridland and Guerdat Start the Wagering for Riders Masters Cup with #RMCIBetYou
The Chefs d’Equipe for the Riders Masters Cup, Robert Ridland (Team USA) and Philippe Guerdat (Team Europe) have each posted their videos for the #RMCIBetYou Challenge! The friendly wagering surrounds who will win the inaugural Riders Masters Cup event, which kicks off at the Longines Masters of Paris on December 2, 2017, and concludes with a second bout at the Longines Masters of New York on April 28, 2018.

Ridland, the U.S. coach who helped guide the Americans to the team silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, is willing to bet a full American-style barbeque, while Guerdat (father of Olympic gold medalist Steve Guerdat) took on the bet and responded that top French rider Kevin Staut would be piloting Kadidja! Who is Kadidja, you ask? Visit the Longines Masters Facebook page to watch Philippe’s video and find out!


The Riders Masters Cup hopes that the #RMCIBetYou challenge will continue to go viral and that equestrian lovers and fans all over the world will place a friendly bet with friends on who will win the December competition.
