After a season of tough competition, Karen Cudmore, originally of Victoria, BC, and now based in Omaha, Nebraska, has captured first place in the Canadian League World Cup Standings with an outstanding 58 points riding the nine-year-old Holsteiner stallion Conejo, owned by her husband and coach Blair Cudmore.

Cudmore had competed in six World Cup Qualifiers in 2002 prior to the $60,000 World Cup Grand Prix, presented by Jaguar, at Royal Horse Show. With only the best four scores to count, she was not eligible to receive World Cup points at the Royal. Cudmore remained untouchable at the top of the standings.

Melissa Brown of Claremont, ON, also remained in second place in the World Cup Standings aboard her horse Karolus K, a 10-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding with a total of 44.

Moving into third position was Ian Millar and Aftershock, a 10-year-old Canadian Warmblood gelding owned by Matthews and Millar Brooke Farm Ltd. The duo received 13 points for their fourth place finish in the $60,000 World Cup Grand Prix, presented by Jaguar, and finishing with a total of 43 points.

The top two riders, Cudmore and Brown, have earned the right to represent Canada at the annual World Cup Show Jumping Final held next year from April 16-20, 2003, in Las Vegas, NV. This past September, Brown and Cudmore were teammates at the 2002 World Equestrian Games in Jerez, Spain. At 23 years of age, this will be Brown's second consecutive trip to the Final.
