The FEI World Cup Vaulting competition started last season and Bordeaux hosted the first final. With five qualifying rounds across Europe, the male and female vaulters selected for this circuit are free to choose the rounds they wish to compete in, given that the best three results count for qualification for the final. Each competition is played out with two rounds for each category (male and female) with, for each, a freestyle performance to music. The horse's behaviour counts for 20% of the final score. The points for the two rounds are added up. In the event of a tie, the score for the second round decides the final result. Title holders for women and men: Joanne Eccles (GBR) and Patric Looser (SUI).
