With consistent, points-earning performances in Vancouver (CAN), Columbus (USA), Del Mar (USA) and Thermal, Eve Jobs (USA) took over the lead in the west coast sub league standings of the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ North American League with 48 points.
Should Jobs qualify to compete at Gothenburg (SWE) in April, it would be her first appearance in a World Cup Final.
“If everything goes as planned, and I can continue to feel comfortable competing at such a high level, I would be honored to go,” she said. “I’m very excited.”
Richard Spooner (USA), a 15-time World Cup Finals veteran, including last season, moved into second in the standings after finishing fourth in Thermal. He has 36 points, four ahead of Zazou Hoffman (USA), who won the World Cup qualifier at Del Mar (USA) in October.
The west coast sub league of the North American League continues in Las Vegas (USA), on 17 November 2018.
