As a permanent fixture on the calendars of esteemed riders, trainers, show jumping aficionados and spectators of all ages, the 2018 American Gold Cup is set to take place starting Wednesday, Sept. 26, through Sunday, Sept. 30, at the breathtaking Old Salem Farm. The annual event is synonymous with world-class international show jumping competition and is aptly located in the horse-friendly county of Westchester in North Salem, New York.

This year's American Gold Cup will celebrate its seventh anniversary at this incredible venue and its fourth year as part of the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ North American League.

Ryan is also the reigning American Gold Cup champion after winning the title in 2017 on Eddie Blue.

In addition, two-time U.S. Olympic gold medalist and 2018 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Final champion, Beezie Madden, will also be in attendance along with fellow U.S. Olympians Margie Engle and Lucy Davis, New York native Georgina Bloomberg, Daniel Bluman (ISR), Mario Deslauriers (CAN), Peter Lutz (USA), Beat Mändli (SUI), Richie Moloney (IRL), Karen Polle (JPN) and Charlie Jacobs (USA), to name a few, representing a total of nine countries around the globe.
