Rolex FEI World Cup 2012/13 – Oslo Preview

Video Provided By:    Join us on Sunday the 14th of October for the opening leg of the Rolex FEI World Cup in Oslo at 12.20 CEST. The Telenor Arena in Oslo, Norway hosts the first leg of the new season next Sunday, and the excitement is building by the day. This, after all, is the first step on the road to the 35th annual Final of a series that has quality written all over it. The taking of the prestigious Rolex FEI World Cup™ crown has been a defining moment in the careers of so many of the greatest horse-and-rider combinations in the history of the sport of international Jumping. It’s the one they all want to win. And there is always something special about a season that concludes at Gothenburg in Sweden, because it is was here that the very first champion was crowned, when, back in 1979, the then-36-year-old Hugo Simon from Austria paved the way for many more to come as he galloped to victory with the big, bold Gladstone. The closing stages of the 2012/2013 season will be played out at the Scandinavium Arena again from 24-28 April next year, but there will be a whole lot of great competition before that. And it is not just restricted to the European mainland, as riders from 16 leagues around the world are all vying for a qualifying spot for the Final.
