A total of 60 applications were received from 26 states for a chance to compete in the Trials. These riders represent some of the United States' most experienced and talented Saddle Seat riders. Similar to what they will experience in the competition, the finalists will compete in the Trials riding two unfamiliar horses. The Trials are held in two phases, each consisting of one rail ride and one pattern. Participants will ride horses donated to William Woods University and may be any breed or crossbreed suited for and trained in the Saddle Seat discipline. 

The Saddle Seat World Cup is a bi-annual international competition originating in the early 1980's as an informal exchange of Saddle Seat riders between the United States and South Africa. Teams from as many as five nations now compete for the coveted World Cup titles.

Spectators are welcome to attend the Trials. The Three-Gaited Trials will be held 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and the Five-Gaited Trials will be held 1:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. For a complete schedule and information regarding hotels and directions go to www.usasaddleseatworldcup.org.
