Robert Smith Competes For World Cup Final Crown

The 25th World Cup Final will take place this weekend at The Thomas & Mack Centre in Las Vegas and Robert Smith will be Great Britain's sole representative.

Robert will ride Di and Pennie Cornish's 9-year-old Dutch bred stallion, Marius Claudius in this year's Final and will be hoping to repeat his recent form, after successes in world class fields at Zurich and s'Hertogenbosch earlier in the year.

Fourty-two riders from sixteen countries have qualified to compete in the Final by qualifying from eight leagues over the past twelve months.

The Final is held over three legs and the timetable is as follows:-

Wednesday 16th April Warm-Up Class
Thursday 17th April World Cup Final First Leg
Friday 18th April World Cup Final Second Leg
Saturday 19th April Las Vegas Grand Prix
Sunday 20th April World Cup Final Third Leg

Last year's Champion, Germany's Otto Becker will defend his title, but Robert will be looking to become the next British World Cup Champion since Nick Skelton's victory in Gothenburg on Dollar Girl in 1995.
