After winning the FEI Jumping Nations Cup Wellington CSIO4 last year, the NetJets U.S. Jump Team is looking for another boss performance when the competition begins March 3.
It will be held at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) in Wellington, Fla. By the way, you probably already know this, but FEI stands for Fédération Équestre Internationale. CSIO4 is not a molecular formula. We believe refers to the level of competition. We are guessing it’s a high level.
While the FEI Jumping Nations Cup Wellington CSIO4 does not count for points towards the 2021 Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup Series, the competition offers valuable team experience for athlete-and-horse combinations. It is the first team outing of the season for the NetJets team.
Riding for the team are Bliss Heers of Las Vegas, Lillie Keenan of New York City, Spencer Smith of Wellington, and Jessica Springsteen of Colts Neck, New Jersey. The latter is the daughter of Bruce Springsteen, in case you were wondering about our references to boss and glory days.
The U.S. Jumping Team competes at top-level global competitions. This includes the Olympic Games, World Equestrian Games, Pan American Games, Nations Cups, and World Championships. The U.S. has always been a top competitor at the Summer Olympics since dressage, eventing, and show jumping were added in 1912, ranking second of all time with 52 team and individual medals.
NetJets customers receive VIP access at select equestrian events throughout the year.
