Europe’s Americana Western Show Announces 2021 Dates

The Americana horse show, which features Europe’s best cutting, reining and reined cow horse events, will be held next year in Germany, officials say.

The show, which was sold out last time, will be held Sept. 8-12 in Augsburg, Germany. Tickets will go on sale next month.

In 2021, the show will feature the Bronze Trophy Open and Bronze Trophy Non-Pro reinings, the European Championship Cutting, European Reined Cow Horse Association Futurity, the European Reined Cow Horse Association Nation’s Cup as well as championship trail and ranch riding classes. 

The events regularly feature horses sired by stallions standing in the United States. In 2019, some of the Americana winners were sired American-based stallions Metallic Cat, Gunners Special Nite, Pale Face Dunit, High Brow CD, Magnum Chic Dream, and more. The late Colonels Smoking Gun (Gunner) and Topsail Whiz also had winners at the 2019 Americana.

There also is a very popular bridleless cutting class, and large Western-themed trade show and informational sessions.
