The first leg of the 2019 FEI Nations Cup Eventing Series is underway at the Saracen Horse Feeds Houghton International Horse Trials in Norfolk, England. Nine teams are contesting the Nations Cup: Germany, France, Great Britain, Sweden, Switzerland, Netherlands, Spain, Belgium and Italy.

Houghton has hosted a Nations Cup leg ever since the FEI launched the series in 2012. The U.S. sent a team to Houghton for the past three consecutive years, and finished on the podium in both 2017 and 2018, but did not send a team this year.

There are 117 starters in this year’s Nations Cup field, which spreads dressage across three days. Click here to view live scoring. Tilly Berendt is on the grounds to bring you full coverage starting today. In the meantime, take a tour of Alec Lochore’s Nations Cup cross country course courtesy of CrossCountry App.
