The Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Final returned in Gothenburg, Sweden, where its very first edition was held in 1979. Once again, the world’s best riders and horses offered the spectators an exciting and unique show. The final’s last round took place on Monday 28 March and saw Steve Guerdat on Corbinian clinch the title of world’s best rider for the second consecutive time. Harrie Smolders earned the second place with Emerald N.O.P. and Daniel Deusser on Cornet d’Amour finished third. To honour the finalists’ outstanding performance, the Swiss watchmaker Longines, which was the Official Partner, Timekeeper and Watch of the competition, awarded them an elegant Longines watch.
