World Cup Finals? There's an App for That

There's a curious lack of paper in the 2017 FEI World Cup Finals press office. Instead of the traditional program, printed news releases, and so forth, the assistant directed me to the FEI World Cup Finals Omaha 2017 app.

Download the app (pictured) for free for iOS from Apple's App Store or for Android from Google Play. Configure it with your desired notifications, and you'll be able to follow along during the exciting Dressage and Jumping Finals. If you are an FEI TV subscriber, you'll be able to watch the whole thing live, as well. Link to FEI TV from your Internet-enabled device or directly from the World Cup Finals app.

As you can see from the app screen shot above, things get under way at Omaha's CenturyLink Center tomorrow morning (Wednesday) with "dressage familiarization." That's when the competitors each get a short time to accustom their horses to the competition arena. The dressage horse inspection is also scheduled for tomorrow, at 4:30 p.m. In between I'm hoping to check out the trade fair. The vendors were busily setting up this afternoon when I showed up to collect my press credential, and the offerings look mighty interesting. I'm going to have to keep a firm grip on my wallet here!
