Equine News: New Nations Cup Trophy
A new trophy for the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Jumping Final was presented to the world at the FEI Sports Forum on April 9th, 2013. This stunning trophy will be first awarded at the end of the series final in Barcelona this September.

I have to say, whoever is awarded this beautiful trophy for the first time will have to feel very honoured. This is truly a work of art.
This beautiful masterpiece was crafted in bronze, crystal and limestone. It is 50 centimetres (or almost 19.7 inches) tall and weighs about 18 kilograms (or about 39.7 pounds).
