The Longines FEI Jumping Nations CupTM for European Division 1 will be kicked off in La Baule from 13th to 16th May 2021.

The only French leg among seven European qualifiers before the world final in Barcelona will be, for the national coaches, an opportunity to review their best pairs in view of the Tokyo Olympic Games held this summer.

This year, 10 nations of the Division 1, among the best in the world, will take part into the Longines FEI Jumping Nations CupTM series: Germany, Belgium (2nd in 2019), France, Great Britain, Ireland (winner of the circuit in 2019), Italy, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland and Sweden. Each of the national teams selected four qualifiers to try and grab the precious points that will allow them to reach the world final in Spain.
