Most important changes

Plesae find following all important changes, many of them thanks to your feedback to make the AMERICANA even better:

  • We are so happy to offer you a second warm-up arena - this will defintely relax the warm up whenever their are different classes back to back like Reining and Trail. But it is also helpful for our evening shows so that sport participants and show exhibitors can prepare themselves better for their individual performances
  • With this AMERICANA we start to offer you the possibility to enter online [], eiither with your laptop, tablet or mobile - let us know what you think!
  • As we only had a very low number of participants, not really setting the scene for a good competition, we have decided with a heavy heart to take the Pleasure classes off of our roster
  • We do not offer Reining Futurity classes anymore, as we would like to move our focus to classes for older horses 
  • Due to an increasing demand we offer the Ranch Riding for Open and Non-Pro riders as separate classes
  • We have added to our roster the new class "Ranch Horse Speed Trail" - we are really looking forward to it!
  • New highligt on Wednesday evening: "Choose to be free" with Kenzie Dyslie. But also with the 5 best riders form the Non-Pro as well as the Open European Cutting Champpionship Go-round ready for our first "Bridleless Cutting" class.
