THE WORLD’S BEST PARTNERSHIPS BATTLING FOR ONE OF THE MOST COVETED TROPHIES IN THE SPORT OF JUMPING
The FEI World Cup™ is one title every Jumping rider wants to take, placing them amongst the greats of the sport including legendary partnerships and double-champions Ian Millar and the mighty Big Ben from Canada, and Great Britain’s John Whitaker and the magical Milton.
Since Austria’s Hugo Simon first punched the air in triumph after victory with Gladstone at the inaugural finale in Gothenburg (SWE) in 1979, the battle for this trophy has thrilled audiences all across the globe. And it never fails to spring a few surprises, as spectators witness previously unexposed talent rising to the challenge of the big occasion.
Athletes from 16 leagues will be battling at over 114 qualifiers around the world this season in order to secure their spot at the Final.
The defending champion is Switzerland’s Steve Guerdat.
