Hi, can somebody (I think @dcro will do it the best way) explain me the Jumping and Dressage World Cup format? I see there are some stages now, but it is only Western European League. What about other regions? And what is the most important series in Eventing? Is there any Nations Cup or World Cup equivalent?

 

World Cup Final is the key event, every stage before that is just a qualification stage. Western European League qualifiers are very much in the spotlight because of the quality of the competition (and because it gives the most quotas for the WC Final). Apart from Western European League, there are also Central Europe, North America and Asia/Pacific leagues in dressage. Jumping has A LOT of different leagues (for example Japan League, Caucasus League, South East Asian League etc.). Progress of the other leagues can be followed on these links...


Dressage

Jumping

 

18 athletes will get invited to compete at Dressage Final and some 30-40 will compete in Jumping Final (both to be held in Omaha, Nebraska next year).

 

Eventing doesn't really have some big series at the moment. But it does have 4* competitions that are quite prestigious. There are only six 4* competitions in the World so they are something like the Grand Slam of eventing. Kentucky, Badminton and Burghley are the most prestigious four stars. However, eventing does have a new series called Event Rider Masters, which had quite a successful premiere this season.

Thanks, now it's all clear for me.

@heywoodu I was quite surprised to see Jeroen Dubbeldam compete with Zenith at Lyon World Cup yesterday. Does this mean that he got to keep him or is it still uncertain? :mumble:

No to both questions :p

 

He doesn't get to keep him and it's not uncertain. He competed with Zenith in Odense and Lyon and possibly some more competitions later on, but that's only as long as the "Show Jumping Horses Funds Netherlands" (SFN) hasn't found a buyer yet. This is basically like a giant show room where Dubbeldam can compete on Zenith until someone offers a high enough amount of money.

Well, still hoping that Dubbeldam finds Gerco Schroder's luck.

SFN's press guy/director seemed to be fairly confident that Dubbeldam wouldn't be competing at the major stage with Zenith anymore (as in, WEG/OG).

This weekend we have Australian International 3-Day Event in Adelaide, the last 4* eventing competition of the season.

 

There are not that many people entered, but Adelaide is always a spectacular competition where cross-country course is right in the city center!

:USA Tryon, North Carolina was awarded the hosting rights for the 2018 World Equestrian Games. It will be held between September 10-23. It's a good thing that WEG remained compact, because there was a possibility of splitting the disciplines between few hosts or even skipping the 2018 edition.

 

Tough luck for :SVK Samorin, but they are already bidding for the 2022 edition.
