Back in the saddle again: AMERICANA 2021 Advance Ticket Sales will begin soon

Augsburg – A real ray of hope these days: Europe's premier western event is back at the start. Advance ticket sales via Ticketmaster will start as early as November 2020. The evening shows on Friday and Saturday were particularly popular - both were completely sold out in 2019. But also the shows on Wednesday and Thursday were very well attended.

Much more than "just" Western riding

For many years, AMERICANA in Augsburg has been setting standards in Western riding - and that is exactly what it will do again from September 8th to 12th, 2021. A good $ 190,000 in prize money is regularly paid out to the participants, making it one of the highest-endowed shows in Europe. But AMERICANA is much more than just a show. The mega-event is also Europe's leading sales fair for western and leisure riding, with between 300 and 350 exhibitors regularly participating. There is no other place where the fans of western horses and the western way of life can find such a comprehensive range of products and services for horses, riders and lifestyle. This is also what AMERICANA is: a unique information portal of the scene and THE meeting point for Western fans from all over the world.

Top-class sport not only in Reining, Cutting and Cow Horse

In 2021, Western riding at its finest will again be on the agenda. Especially the Reining Bronze Trophy and the cattle classes have brought the AMERICANA an international reputation. Also in 2021 a highly endowed Bronze Trophy Open and Non Pro will be held again, where top riders from all over the world are expected.

Further highlights are the European Championship Cutting, the ERCHA European Reined Cow Horse Futurity and the ERCHA Nations Cup as well as the European Championship Trail and European
Championship Ranch Riding.

Again four evening events - 'Stunts & Stars with Kenzie Dysli ' on Wednesday

In 2021, AMERICANA will again offer four evening events. With "Stunts & Stars" the Wednesday evening event will introduce the fascinating world of horse training for the big appearances in movies, television and shows. If you want to survive in the limelight, you have to be able to rely completely on your horse. Jumping through the fire or lying down on the ground in a foreign arena in front of 5,000 visitors - this is a tremendous achievement for a horse, which requires absolute trust in its trainer and rider. Kenzie Dysli and her team will
show on Wednesday night how this can be done and how even the 'normal' rider can benefit from it. Of course, questions from the audience are highly welcome. Another highlight of the Wednesday will be the bridleless cutting, which was enthusiastically received by both riders and visitors at the AMERICANA 2019. On Thursday night, there will be the ERCHA Nations Team Cup with the best Reined Cow Horse teams of Europe.

The famous AMERICANA evening shows will take place on Friday and Saturday as usual. The final of the Open Reining Bronze Trophy is traditionally held during the Friday evening show, as well as the final of the European Open Ranch Riding Class, while the Saturday evening show is dedicated to the cow classes. Here the decisions of the World Cup Cutting Open and the ERCHA Open Cow Horse Futurity will be made. As always, there will be a series of great show interludes.

The information portal (not only) for western riders

But this very special mixture of trade fair and high class sport is not only a must go for western riders, but also for leisure riders in general. During the five days during which AMERICANA is open to visitors, expert know how is conveyed. Whether there are questions about horse keeping, starting horses or veterinary problems - in the forum, you will find answers. In 2021, in addition to classic riding and equestrian equipment, successful topics such as health, equestrian tourism and Horse & Dog will be further expanded. New topics such as innovative horse keeping or a children's program will supplement the comprehensive
range of offers.

But of course, this event is No.1 for Western riders, who can get comprehensive information about the individual disciplines and Western horse breeds. It is not without reason that the event is considered the ideal platform for the presentation of associations, breeders and trainers. Here horse lovers will find their breed, their discipline and the corresponding contact persons and trainers.
