Furusiyya and the FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping
For centuries the ancient term Furusiyya has embraced the idea of
horsemanship and equestrian knowledge, and this same sense of purity,
nobility and chivalry has been brought to the FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping Series – the world’s leading international team competition.
Originally launched in 1909, the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping is
the oldest and most prestigious team Jumping competition in the world.
It was devised to make the sport more accessible to all nations, and enables teams from developing nations to compete on a level playing field with
the traditional powerhouses of equestrian sport. As a result of its soaring popularity, FEI Nations Cup™ events are now staged around the world, across a number of continents.
Now in its fourth year, Furusiyya is extremely proud to be the title sponsor of the FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping and to be the driving force behind the
international expansion of this great equestrian competition. During 2015, 45 nations competed for 18 places at The Final, staged at the outstanding
Real Club de Polo in Barcelona. The 2015 Furusiyya Nations Cup™ Jumping
Final successfully continued on from the exceptionally high standards set in previous years and featured countries from all corners of the planet, a true reflection of the popularity of Jumping on the global stage.
We wish all the horse and rider combinations taking part the best of luck in the 2016 Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™, and we look forward to watching world class international team Jumping throughout the year.
