The Federation Equestre Interationale (FEI) and its Top Partner Longines announced on Saturday two awards recognizing achievement and outstanding performance in jumping across the globe.

Accumulating points throughout the whole calendar year, the World's Best Jumping Horse will be determined from the horse's 10 best results of the year in the world rankings, whereas the World's Best Jumping Rider will be the leading rider in the world rankings at the end of the year.

The winners' of these two new awards will be presented with a Longines watch and trophy during the FEI World Cup jumping final held in Paris in April 2018.

Points for the Longines Rankings are accumulated in Grands Prix, the World Cup jumping and the Nations Cup jumping, including the Finals, as well as the World and European Senior Championships. Double points are awarded at Finals and Championships.

"We're very pleased to announce these two new awards, together with Longines, which will serve as an additional recognition of outstanding performance and achievement at the highest level of the sport," FEI President Ingmar de Vos said.

"These awards will add an exciting new dimension to the already coveted monthly Longines Rankings leader title, and build engagement with our audiences as they follow the top athletes and horses throughout the year."
