Read it and weep.

FEI World Cup™ Eventing
The FEI World Cup™ for Eventing was developed by the Eventing committee in 2002 and has been running since based the following principle - the FEI World Cup™ Eventing is the showcase of the Eventing sport for the future and is aimed to promote the emblematic values of Eventing to the public at large as well as sponsors through constant review of sport, with the participation of the world’s best riders and horse.

All of the events in the series are CIC 3*s. Focus on the CIC part.

While we're bemoaning it, if my memory serves, Jack LeGoff actually championed the idea of a world cup for eventing. (No idea of his views of long format vs. short though.)

Short! Heck, I'm thinking the FEI's next move is to replace CCIs with CICs. Then all a horse will have to do is 6.30 minutes of endurance instead of 10.30.
