NJAugust 19, 2002There are two Show Jumping World

leagues is maintained by the United States Equestrian Team (USET).
general, riders qualify for the Final in the league in which they

riders competing in one of the U.S leagues may qualify for the
Final from one of the U.S. Leagues, as long as they reside in
the United States and gain at least as many points as the lowest-placed
competitor qualified for the Final in the league in which they
live. This rule applies to Canadian riders living and competing
in World Cup qualifying classes in the U.S. as well as to riders
from other countries.
and foreign riders wishing to qualify for the Final in a league
other than the one in which they live must notify the U.S. Equestrian
Team in writing about the change before they compete in their
first World Cup qualifier of that season. If the USET does not
receive this notification before a riders first class, any
points the rider earns will be credited to them in the league
in which he or she lives.
Coast riders are eligible to earn full points in West Coast qualifiers
up to and including the sixth-placed World Cup placing, but no
points will be awarded to East Coast riders after the sixth-placed
World Cup competitor. These cross-over points will
be counted for a maximum of three competitions. West Coast riders
are eligible to earn full points in East Coast qualifiers no matter
where they place, as long as the class takes place during the
same period as the West Coast League.
