Paris—April 16

The 2018 Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Final was an important milestone for the United States, with Beezie Madden earning her second win in five years (she last won on Simon in 2013), Devin Ryan taking second with Eddie Blue, and McLain Ward finishing fourth with HH Azur.

And while the athleticism displayed by the horses was incredible to watch, it was the emotional moments that last forever. Catch up on all of the Chronicle’s coverage of the World Cup, and relive all of the fun from the event.
