Great horses, great riders, great horsemanship and an enthusiastic public are what made the Individual Reining Final Competition amazing at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy. Last to enter the arena, which counted some of the world’s best horses and riders, was National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) $5 Million Dollar Rider Shawn Flarida. Aboard Michell Anne Kimball’s Spooks Gotta Whiz, Shawn had posted the highest score – a 229.5 – in the individual qualifier, which put him last to go in the seeded finals.
The Tulsa Reining Classic, held Aug. 26-31, at the Expo Square in Tulsa, Okla. had competitors coming from near and far for a chance to win top honors. There were 94 horse-and-rider teams striving to earn the championship in the Hollywoodstinseltown Futurity Open, but draw 50, Meradas Shining and Eduardo Salgado, set the bar highest at 221.5 and took home the title.
