The Trials will be held at William Woods University in Fulton, Mo., December 4-5, 2015.

The World Cup is a bi-annual competition that originated in the early 1980s with an informal exchange of saddle seat riders in the United States and South Africa, and was named the Saddle Seat Equitation World Cup in 1992. Originally a three-gaited saddle seat equitation showcase, it has expanded to include a five-gaited component as well. Teams from as many as five nations now compete for the coveted World Cup titles. The 2016 Saddle Seat World Cup Competition is scheduled to take place in South Africa.
 
The 2016 World Cup Team efforts are proudly supported by United Professional Horseman's Association (UPHA) and the USA Equestrian Trust.
