LONGINES FEI WORLD CUP ™ JUMPING FINAL

LONGINES FEI WORLD CUPTM JUMPING FINAL - PARIS 2018

Created in 1978, the FEI World CupTM represents one of the most prestigious individual jumping circuits and the most highly coveted by the discipline’s riders. 
The world title is awarded at the Final after 
10 months of qualifiers in 16 leagues throughout the world.
The Western European League plays host to 13 legs across Europe.
At the end of this qualifying circuit, the 40 best riders in the world are invited to this final. 

Jumping is an impressive discipline. It requires precision, dynamism and strength from both horse and rider. It's a sport that's easy to understand. The jury's verdict and the scoring system are simple: competitors are penalised with four faults when they knock down a rail and when a horse refuses to jump an obstacle. A second refusal or if the rider falls will result in them being disqualified. After competing in the initial round, riders who jump clear often ride a second round on a more difficult course known as the jump-off. The winner is the one with the best time and the least faults on this second round.
