The loss of such an important FEI World Cup™ qualifying class would have been devastating to the hundreds of competitors that call Wellington home in the winter, as well as for the local community that has come to realize the importance of such classes. That's when the Jacobs family stepped up.
“When we heard there was a strong possibility the World Cup qualifier was at risk, we wanted to do something to ensure it would stay here," said Lou Jacobs. "My family discussed how we could help and we decided to host the event at Deeridge Farms. Now we are assured that this important Longines FEI World Cup™Jumping North American League qualifier will remain in the Village of Wellington for the next three years. It is important to the community, competitors and enthusiasts that we keep it here.”
