The 2015 Jumping and Dressage World Cup Finals will be staged in Las Vegas, the event's sixth time in the US gambling mecca, the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) said Wednesday.

Las Vegas hosted the 2000 and 2003 jumping final and conducted the event in 2005, 2007 and 2009 after it was combined with the dressage finals.

"It will be good to be back in Las Vegas after a six-year gap," said FEI secretary general Ingmar De Vos. "We are looking forward to really top class sport in this fabulous venue."

The first combined jumping and dressage World Cup finals were staged in 2005 at the Thomas and Mack Center, a site for many top boxing cards as well as the American National Finals Rodeo.
