To be held in Goteborg, Sweden April 23-27, the Final showcases the world's best show jumping riders, who qualify by accumulating points throughout the competition year at designated FEI events in one of the FEI worldwide leagues. Kent Farrington had a lock on the East Coast League with 107 points after winning three of the 12 East Coast Qualifiers. Rich Fellers won two of 11 qualifiers offered in the West and topped that League with 95 points.
