Thomas Guenther rides bareback to the Freestyle Reining Open Championship

Standing in the middle of the arena, he called for his horse Super Silbver Haze which arrived with a sliding stop in front of him. Thomas who was dressed like the devil, mounted and finished his pattern which included even piaff and pirouette in addition to the reining manouevres. Super Silbver Haze finished the pattern by lying down and earned top score 221.5.

With a score of 218, Tereza Trestikova placed third. She entered the arena on foot letting her horse AP Royal Bar turn from the ground, and then mounted finishing her pattern. Two riders tied for fourth place scoring a 214: Astrid Rensmann aboard CC Nite Rider and Shirley Schalcher aboard Big And Sweet BB.
