Forty athletes representing 19 nations tested the waters inside the CHI Health Center Omaha on Tuesday ahead of round one of the 2023 FEI Jumping World Cup™ Final. Riders were welcomed to introduce their mounts to the 18,000-spectator capacity arena over a warm-up course of eight fences as a training session.
Though the crowd was slim on familiarization day, organizers of the 2023 Finals anticipate a packed arena when the Final kicks off on Wednesday. Ireland’s Denis Lynch and Brooklyn Heights, a 14-year-old Belgian warmblood gelding, will be the trailblazers for FEI Jumping World Cup™ Final competition.
