The 2022 FEI World Cup Dressage Final is set to go ahead in Leipzig, Germany on 6-10 April. This will be the first World Cup Final to take place since the 2019 final in Gothenburg, Sweden. It is taking place alongside the jumping, driving and vaulting World Cup Finals.
Top riders all over the world compete for one of 18 coveted places at the World Cup Final in regional leagues: the Western European League, the Central European League, the Pacific League, the North American League, with the highest ranking non-league rider offered a place and three additional starting places also allocated. The title defender is given an automatic place in the following year’s final.
At the final, each combination rides the grand prix, which determines the starting order for the grand prix freestyle to music, from which the final result is decided.
For the 2021/2022 season, the short grand prix has been introduced for use at World Cup qualifiers.
