The much anticipated FEI World Cup Finals in Omaha celebrated its first day with fans filling the CenturyLink Center. Spectators had the opportunity to watch demonstrations in the Colorado State Demonstration arena as well as showjumpers and dressage horse training in the main arena.

The Longines FEI World Cup Final is set to begin on Thursday, March 30 with the first round of jumping taking place in the evening at 7:00 p.m.

Spectators caught their first glimpse of the world-class riders and horses in the training sessions for both dressage and jumping. They were also able to get "up close and personal" to watch riders in the warm-up area outside the main arena. Among those practicing for the jumping session was two-time Pan American Games bronze medalist Todd Minikus (USA) riding Babalou, owned by Jack Snyder and Two Swans Farm.

"I was really happy with the way my horse went today," said Minikus. "Everything here looks fantastic and there's no doubt that Omaha is ready for the World Cup."
