The Longines FEI World Cup™ Show Jumping Final is a three-phase event at the Thomas & Mack Center. If riders do not qualify for Sunday’s two-round finale, they can still compete in Saturday night’s $75,000 Las Vegas Jumping Grand Prix for the John Quirk Cup, given in memory of the late Californian who came up with the idea of holding the finals in Vegas.
