The FEI World Cup Finals Start Tomorrow in Paris
Thirty-eight show jumpers and seventeen dressage riders will battle it out for the FEI Longines Jumping World Cup and the FEI Dressage World Cup.
Repeat after me: McLain Ward returns to defend his title on his brilliant mare HH Azur. In dressage, three-time champion Isabell Werth is the clear favorite. Can they pull it off?
Notable absents: World #1 Kent Farrington, #3 Peder Fredricson in jumping. In dressage, #3 Cathrine Dufour, #4 Sönke Rothenberger.
Why it matters: It's the best of the best. Competing there is the equestrian version of being nominated for an Oscar.
