“It is wonderful that the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup Final and FEI Dressage World Cup 2026 will travel to the United States,” he added. “With only two years to go until the LA28 Olympic and Paralympic Games, excitement will be mounting, and I’m convinced that it will be an event full of excellent sport, cheer and high energy.
