Steve Guerdat (SUI) was named Swiss Rider of the Year last Saturday during the Longines CSI Basel in Switzerland. The current number-one ranked rider in the world and 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games Individual Jumping bronze medalist more than earned the honors awarded by the Swiss Team Trophy (STT) patrons’ association and by the Swiss Sport Horse Association VSS.
Guerdat had several important victories last year, including the 18th IJRC Rolex Top Ten Final at the CHI of Geneva 5*. He was also a majo contributor to the Swiss Jumping Team, having registered a total of 10 clear rounds while riding for them.
