Cheer on our boys in the World Cup Jumping Final this week
Founded in 1978, the FEI World CupTM represents one of the most prestigious individual jumping circuits and the most highly coveted by the world’s top riders. The world title is awarded at the final after 10 months of qualifiers in 16 leagues. At the end of this qualifying circuit, 40 riders in the world are invited to this final, which this year is being held in Paris, France.
