AMERICANA 2021 becomes Mekka of Reined Cow Horse again
Residenz Kubitzer Bodden powers ERCHA Nations Team Cup
Reined Cow Horse - this discipline is pure adrenaline and inseparable from AMERICANA. The first European Reined Cow Horse Association (ERCHA) Futurity took place here in Augsburg. The first ERCHA Nations Team Cup was also held here. Both have been regular features of AMERICANA ever since, attracting the best Reined Cow Horse riders of Europe to Augsburg. This year, as already reported, another premiere will be added: an ERCHA Derby. The finals of the ERCHA Futurity and the ERCHA Derby will be part of the Saturday evening show, while the ERCHA Nations Team Cup final will be held on Thursday evening. The idea of a Nations Cup in this discipline so excited Residenz Kubitzer Boden that the company spontaneously decided to sponsor the title. The event on Thursday evening is thus called Residenz Kubitzer Bodden Cow Horse Nations Team Cup.
The Residenz Kubitzer Bodden (https://residenz-kubitzer-bodden.de ) is located on the sunny island of Rugen in the vicinity of the Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft National Park. The residence offers vacations for adults in a relaxing atmosphere and unspoiled nature. Not only people are pampered here, but also horses. If you want to bring your own horse, you are welcome to do so. For riders there are special vacation packages such as horse and fitness. For those who do not bring their own horse, the in-house Arabians are available.
