The Saddle Seat 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. Originally a three-gaited Saddle Seat Equitation showcase, it has expanded to include a five-gaited competition. 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.
