“Choose to be free” – New Event on Wednesday Night with Kenzie Dysli and Bridleless Cutting

Augsburg – Ticket sale for AMERICANA 2019 has started! Once more, there will be four evening events. Besides the famous evening shows on Friday and Saturday and the ERCHA Nations Cup on Thursday, there will be a new event on Wednesday: „Choose to be free“. Here, Kenzie Dysli will present her way of training horses for liberty dressage. The famous young trainer whose horses starred in the ‚Ostwind‘ movies, shows her horses without saddle and bridle. Horsemen know how much trust and harmony have to be between horse and rider to achieve this in a huge arena with lots of spectators. In the event, Kenzie shares her training methods with the visitors which focus on subtle communication, trust and friendship as well as fairness in daily handling and riding. As a special highlight, visitors can ask question during the evening event. 

Another highlight will be the bridleless cutting which offers a purse of EUR 2,000. Here, the top 5 riders of the Open and Non Pro go round will show the art of cutting without a bridle.
