For the first time of the over twenty-years-long history of the FEI Jumping World Cup the 2004 final will take place in Italy where, from 21 to 24 April, the world's best riders and horses will compete in the arena of the Forum of Assago, located in the outskirts of Milan, some 15 minutes from the city centre. Started in 1979, the World Cup Final is an annual showdown among the top international riders. Approximately 45 riders, including many past and future Olympians, qualify from 13 leagues around the world.
