The calendar is complete for the 14 competitions that make up the 2017–2018 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping North American League series. The action begins in early August in Canada as riders vie for a spot in the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Final, April 4–10, 2018, in Paris, France. Fourteen North American League riders will qualify: seven from the Eastern League, three from the Western League and two each from Canada and Mexico.
