In addition to the dressage and show-jumping competition, the network showed our skyline by day and at night, as well as the Old Market, the CenturyLink Center, the Gene Leahy Mall, the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge and the Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium.

World Cup organizers say the competition has drawn fans from across the United States and overseas. But the event’s planners also expect that plenty of folks from Omaha — a city known for supporting big sporting events — will show up to check out horses in action in two Olympic equestrian categories: show jumping and dressage, also known as “horse ballet.”

The 2017 World Cup Finals, Wednesday through Sunday at the CenturyLink Center, will draw equestrian fans from around the country and overseas for an event that could be described as the Super Bowl of horses. Riders and animals compete in two Olympic equestrian categories.

Marcus Theatres’ Midtown Cinema will get in on the equine action when Omaha welcomes the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping and Dressage Finals March 29 through April 2.

With this weekend's event, organizers of The International hope to build on last year's equestrian competition, which drew more than 8,500 spectators to the CenturyLink Center, and possibly make a bid for Omaha to host the next available World Cup Finals, in 2017.
