The International Saddle Seat Equitation World Cup is a bi-annual competition which originated in the early 1980s with an informal exchange of saddle seat athletes in the United States and South Africa.
Originally a three-gaited saddle seat equitation showcase, it has expanded to include a five-gaited component as well. Teams from as many as five nations now compete for the coveted World Cup titles with the goal to further growth and visibility for the saddle seat discipline on national and international levels.
The United States Equestrian Federation (US Equestrian) formed the U.S. Saddle Seat World Cup and Young Rider programs to expand the presence of Saddle Seat Equitation through team-based competition.
