One of eight competitions of the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ in the European top division is held in Falsterbo and now one team from USA is attending this summer.
Nations Cup is the most prestigious showjumping series for national teams in the world. Each nation competes in teams of 4 riders. Last year Germany won and in 2012 Sweden won in Falsterbo. This year USA is coming to give it a try on Friday July 11th.
– It is fantastic that USA is coming to visit us with a full team. Considering the great conditions that they have for horse shows in the U.S, it feels good that they choose to come to Falsterbo. The riders get tougher competition and the audience can see more good sport, says “Jana” Wannius, President Falsterbo Horse Show
–The US Jumping Team is delighted to be returning to Falsterbo Horse Show in 2014 and are extremely grateful to the Organizing Committee for the invitation. Falsterbo is one of Europe’s top Nations Cup events and as part of the Furusiyya Nations Cup, European Division 1 series, it will allow our US Jumping riders, both established and our future championship riders, to compete against some of the world’s very best riders and horses. We are excited to be Jumping in Sweden again and looking forward to top competition as well as Falsterbo’s great fans and atmosphere and of course the Rabbit Jumping!, says Lizzy Chesson, Managing Director of Show Jumping Programs, United States Equestrian Federation
