On Tuesday, 46 jumping horses were presented to the FEI Ground Jury in Omaha for inspection ahead of the Longines FEI World Cup Final. 

Emily Sandler-Burtness, President of the Veterinary Commission, was among the officials evaluating the horses."The horses appeared to have traveled well and are ready for competition," said Sandler-Burtness. "We are thrilled to be here in Omaha and are looking forward to a spectacular event." 

Riders from 18 countries will be competing for the coveted Longines FEI World Cup Jumping trophy. Heading the list of entries is two-time defending World Cup champion Steve Guerdat. Guerdat, individual gold medalist at the 2012 London Olympic Games, is seeking to tie the record of Rodrigo Pessoa, Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, Marcus Ehning and Hugo Simon with his third consecutive title.
