The NRHA European Affiliate Rookie Championship Final Lights Up the SVAG CS Classic 2022 Sunday


Givrins, July 17—Closing the successful $80,000-Added SVAG CS Classic National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) European Affiliate Championships held at NRHA Million Dollar Owner Corinna Schumacher’s state-of-the-art CS Ranch in Grivins, Switzerland, was the $200-Added Rookie EAC.

The 25 qualified riders from seven countries lit up the beautiful CS Arena on Sunday morning where sliding to the highest step of the podium was Matt Legrand of France riding Gb Little Kid, a 7-year-old stallion by Nicmeridalittlestep out of Ima Torrid Lady, owned and bred by Anniek Legrand. “I am super happy with this prestigious title,” said the 14-year-old rider from France who closed his ride with a 214.5. “I was a little stressed before the class since this is my last Rookie class, but was very determined as I have been working with the goal of winning the Championship since the beginning of the year. This win encloses a lot of emotions since this horse was born at our place and we have both the dam and sire at home. My father [Gregory Legrand] showed the dam at the very first European Championships, and I would like to thank him for preparing my horse for this competition and of course I thank my number one supporter, my mother!”



A half-point behind, Belgium’s Siebe Van Bekhoven rode his own WS Check My Pedigree, a 7-year-old APHA gelding by Wimpys Smoking Gun x Footworks Finetiming to the second step of the podium. “I'm very happy with all the Belgium team who was here to support me all week, especially my trainers Ann and Bernard Fonck; they did a great job. My horse was as always really sweet, he gave me all like he does every time he does. We had a lot of fun, and I wish I could ride and show like we did today every time.”

Barbora Julinova of the Czech Republic rode LV Pistol Great Pine (Custom Rooster out of Majors Queen Mary), a 5-year-old gelding owned by Petr Monika Julina to third place honors with a 213 score.

2022 Highlights

NRHA EAC Youth Team Tournament


Seven teams, comprised of two 13 & under and two 14-18 youth in each team on Saturday rode for the NRHA EAC Youth Team Tournament medals. With seven countries represented, the top three scores counted for the composite of each team: Taking home first place along with the medals and buckles offered by NRHA was the Purple Team made up of Czech’s Nicolas Pavel and SK Cash To Gun Arc (207.5); Germany’s Lisa Wiechers riding Shesgunnasparkya (202); Lou Covarel of France with Big Chex Olena (208.5); and Switzerland’s Emelie Zopf with Smart Littlesplinter (202). All teams left Givrins with medals and friendships were sealed.

2022 World Para Reining European Championship


Frigg Birt Müller her own Belles Flair made their way from Denmark—a 20-hour haul with a stop in Germany—to show in the World Para Reining European Championship. Thrilling the crowd, the Grade 1 talented rider closed her precise and clean ride with an amazing 220.5 score and an enthused public. “This is the highest score I have ever received and I am thrilled with my horse who I’ve had for three months and who was with me all the way,” said Müller who turned to para reining after competing in para dressage. “I loved the crowd who was there to cheer me and it is actually the very first time that we did not ask the crowd to be silent until the end of the run and that’s a thrill.”



Frigg was quick to credit her trainer Rebecca Jensen of Highland Quarter Horses, and her assistant Anja Funder, for their support and added that she loves competing and would love to see more riders show in the para reining. “World Para Reining provides so many opportunities for riders with disabilities and I encourage them all to look into them. I love competition and would love to see more horse-rider combinations perform!” Being the only competitor in the class, the title could not go to Müller; CS Ranch did award the duo the trophy and ribbon for their performance.

After welcoming a record number of horses and riders this year, the SVAG CS Classic team looks forward to welcoming NRHA European Affiliate Championships Finalists in 2023!

SVAG CS Classic 2022: Riders Write Their Names in the NRHA European Affiliate Championships History Book


Givrins, July 16—The beautiful CS Ranch Arena in Givrins, Switzerland, welcomed yet another record number of competitors vying for the European Affiliate Championship titles at the SVAG CS Classic 2022 which included the prestigious Open and Non Pro Championships. The show will close on Sunday with the last Final of the year; the $200-Added EAC Rookie.

$18,000-Added NRHA EAC Open


In a field of 17 qualified riders, Grischa Ludwig riding Spooks Of Genius, a 2016 American Quarter Horse stallion by NRHA Four Million Dollar Sire Spooks Gotta Whiz x A Spark Of Genius owned by Margot Van Doorne scored a 228.5.

Last night, the German professional had ridden Alexandra Schmitz’s 6-year-old stallion Gunnit In Hollywood (NRHA Seven Million Dollar Sire Gunnatrashya x Buffy In Hollywood), to a 229 winning the $12,000-Added NRHA Open ancillary class. “I am speechless,” said the German professional. “Last night I promised my dad that I would win—and we did—and today he said ‘son, do it again.’ It’s been a long, hot week here, so I wasn’t sure we could repeat what we did yesterday but…we did it again and this is very emotional for me. I am truly fortunate to have such great horses to ride and once again the public was amazing.”

Ann Fonck of Belgium riding Colonels Whize Gun (Colonels Shining Gun x Alicias Conquistador), a 2016 gelding owned by Anneliese & Hermann Meinert, scored a 226.5 for the second step of the podium. The Belgian rider also tied for third place riding CS Sailing Gun (Gunners Enterprise x La Bigia Sailor), a 5-year-old stallion owned by CS Ranch Management SA, along with Ludwig riding West Coast Trash, a 6-year-old stallion by NRHA Seven Million Dollar Sire Gunnatrashya out of Miss Cody Whiz It owned by Margot Van Doorne.

However, my goal now is to make the million, and I knew he could do well. My brother [Mick] rode him last night, did a few manoeuvers, had fun, and it worked. This horse is really very special and I am so proud of him.”

With a 222 score, Schumacher also tied for the Reserve Championship with CS Wallawallaboom (NRHA Four Million Dollar Sire Walla Walla Whiz x Cheeky Boom), a 6-year-old gelding owned and bred by CS Ranch Management SA, with Nina Zinsli of Switzerland riding TR Reinman (NRHA Million Dollar Sire Shine Chic Shine x KR Ima Gunner), a 6-year-old gelding owned by Christian-Peter Zinsli.

Earning her first European Affiliate Championship title was Swiss Vera Schlauri riding Jac Whiz. By Conquistador Whiz out of Honeys Melody Jac, the 2009 gelding was bred in France by Catherine Castel and is owned Schlauri’s companion, Fabien Boiron. “I love this horse and am so happy my boyfriend, who trains out of HorseAcademy in Mooslargue, France, gave me the opportunity to show him,” shared Schlauri. “I started riding western horses five years ago and thanks to Fabien I fell in love with reining and with Jac Whiz. He always takes care of me and even though I have another job and only ride on weekends, he makes me look good!”

The pair scored a 213.5 for the win.

Angelika Dobesova of Slovakia took reserve honors after scoring a 212.5 aboard LV Barny Remedys, a 7-year-old stallion by Remedys Moonshine out of Majors Queen Mary owned by Daša Zahradníková.

I especially want to thank the Fonck’s and my all Belgium Team.”

He means the world to me: he is my life and feels all my emotions. I usually ride Bob myself at home with my mother my two sisters who also compete.”

Two points behind, Thea Karasova of Czech Republic riding her own Playin for Big Guns (Tinseltownsmokinggun x Playin For Big Chex) rode to the Reserve Championship in front of Belgian Jody Fonck who scored a 212.5 riding Chic Chic Hoorah (NRHA Seven Million Dollar Sire Smart Spook x Chuka Chic) owned by J&J Comm V.

First NRHA European Affiliate Champions Crowned at the SVAG CS Classic 2022; Ludwig and Schumacher Triumph in the NRHA Open and Non Pro Ancillary Classes


Givrins, July 15—The SVAG CS Classic National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) European Affiliate Championships officially opened the day at CS Ranch in Givrins, Switzerland. The first 2022 Champions were crowned after a tight battle for the highest step of the podium in the four Finals offered; more high level competition closed the day with the $8,500-Added NRHA Non Pro and $12,000-Added NRHA Open which kept the public glued to their seats until the very last contestant.

$5,000-Added NRHA EAC Intermediate Open


Opting to share the NRHA EAC Intermediate Open Championship with a 216.5 score was Axel Pesek riding his own 2014 American Quarter Horse stallion Reloaded Gun (NRHA Thirteen Million Dollar Sire Gunner x Shes Berry Flashy) and Steve Ouellet aboard Steadynest Dude (Steadys Dude x Finest Chicolena), a 2011 stallion owned by Christian Koehl of Germany. Ouellet and his mount also claimed the $2,000-Added NRHA EAC Limited Open title.

“I purchased this horse a year ago and we won quite a bit last year,” said the 22 year old rider from France. “This year started off well, and our goal was to the title here so it’s super. Since we are currently leading the NRHA Intermediate Open rankings after three shows, we’ve now decided to haul for the title and since it’s my first time aiming for the World Championship, it’s truly exciting,”

Ouellet had a special story to tell: “Six years ago my wife [Alessia Vincenzi] and her favorite horse Steadynest Dude, AKA ‘Dude,’ had a bad accident during a work session that almost cost her life. The following years were of course difficult for her and the one companion that did not change and stayed with us was Dude. He’s 11-years-old, has a lot of experience in the show pen, so that’s one point I really had to work on but his two qualities are his great mind and heart which brought us to win these two prestigious titles. We are so proud of this achievement!”

Stepping on the third place of the podium, half-a-point behind the Champions was Stefano Ferri of Italy riding A Ruff Spookin Gal, 2016 American Quarter Horse mare (NRHA Seven Million Dollar Sire Smart Spook x A Ruf Gal), owned by NRHA Two Million Dollar Owner Rosanne Sternberg score 216

Taking the NRHA EAC Limited Open Reserve Championship with a 215.5 score was Poland’s Rafal Dolata riding CR Blue Chrome, a 2014 American Quarter Horse stallion by NRHA Five Million Dollar Sire Gunners Special Nite out of Nu Chexy owned by Nagiec Arkadiusz and bred by Dave J Roberts

Lena-Marie Maas and Arnels Spat Olena (NRHA Million Dollar Sire Spat Olena out of RS Arnels Feo Jac), owned and bred by German Sabrina Adam, scored a 215 for the third step of the podium.

$4,000-Added NRHA EAC Intermediate Non Pro


Swiss Sabine Schmid riding her own Big Code (Electric Code x Roosterina) scored a 220.5 early in the draw to take the Championship. “I purchased this horse in September last year – I had my eyes on him for a long time because I really loved him and am so emotional right now. After our ride together today, the only thing I could do was cry!” said the Swiss rider. “I only showed him at a show in Mooslargue, France, and at the Italian Derby. We love each other so much and he is amazing to show.”

Taking Reserve honors with a 217 and third place honors with a 215.5 in both the Intermediate and Limited non pro was George Sternberg Allen of Great Britain riding Slide Like Jac (Jacs Little Sunrise x Slidin Like A Yankee) owned and bred by Francesca Sternberg and A Shining Gun (Shine My Gun x Lady Buena Freckles), also owned by Francesca Sternberg respectively.

Bringing home the $1,500-Added NRHA EAC Limited Non Pro title with a 219 was 19-year-old Sara Karasova of the Czech Republic aboard her own KH Yankee Step, a 7-year-old gelding by NRHA Million Dollar Sire Rowdy Yankee out of Step A Little Closer). “This is my first EAC title with my great horse who had some time off after the European Derby last year where we won the Level 3, 2, and 1. My sister showed him at the Italian Derby since I was graduating from high school, I took back the reins for the Germany Derby where things didn’t go too well but then we made up for it at the Czech Maturity where we won, and now this!” said Karasova who was quick to credit her trainer Jonáš Bujnoch for her results and her family for the great support.


$12,000-Added NRHA Open


Grischa Ludwig and Alexandra Schmitz’s 2016 American Quarter Horse stallion Gunnit In Hollywood (NRHA Seven Million Dollar Sire Gunnatrashya x Buffy In Hollywood), laid down an amazing ride paid back by the judges with a huge 229. “This is a great horse, trained by Italian Pierluigi Fabbri who did a great job on him,” said the German rider. “This is our third show together and this is the first time he was exactly where I needed him. He really showed how classy and athletic he is, and I am thrilled. I love CS Ranch, there’s so much history here, and the public is always amazing.” Piloting Anneliese & Hermann Meinert’s Colonels Whize Gun (Colonels Shining Gun x Alicias Conquistador to second place honors with a 228.5 was NRHA Million Dollar Rider Ann Fonck of Belgium.

$8,000-Added NRHA Non Pro


Gina Maria Schumacher, now based in the family CS Ranch in Gordonville, Texas, came back to Givrins for the EAC and once again left her mark by scoring a 223.5 to win the Non Pro ancillary class with CS Ranch Management SA's CS Wallawallaboom (NRHA Four Million Dollar Sire Walla Walla Whiz out of Cheeky Boom) and placed third and fourth with Alittlewhitetrash and Gunna Black Out respectively. “It feels great to be back home,” said Schumacher. “This horse has always made everyone who’s shown him happy; he came back from the U.S. last week after the Derby and will stay here as he’s actually my mom’s horse. I’m very happy with my other two horses I showed, it’s been a great night.” Swiss Adrienne Speidel performed to a 221.5 with her own Wimpysshortstride BB (NRHA Twelve Million Dollar Sire Wimpys Little Step x Short Rooster) to take second place honors.
