Para-Reining to be Featured at AQHA World Show

From USA Reining Release – By Brad Ettleman - USA Reining, the official sport affiliate for the western discipline of Reining within the international structure of horse sport, announces together with the United States Para-Equestrian Association (USPEA) as well as partners: the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) and the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA), the introduction of Reining into the Para-Equestrian movement.

To be featured at the 2013 AQHA World Championship Show in Oklahoma City, OK, Para-Reining will include a clinic and educational seminar on Thursday, November 14th and a first-ever Para-Reining demonstration class on Friday, November 15th – marking the maiden Para-Reining ever to be held within the US Para-Equestrian system and a launching of efforts to bring the discipline online as a fully recognized sport in 2014.

Both affiliates of the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), which serves as the National Governing Body for Equestrian Sport in the United States, USA Reining and USPEA are striving to ensure Para-Reining rules and competitions are in line with events hosted at stakeholder shows. Those stakeholders are chiefly USA Reining founding partners AQHA and NRHA. AQHA will add Para-Reining into its existing and thriving Equestrians with Disabilities Program, and NRHA will work to do the same with a newly launched Adaptive Reining program. Once complete, the integration will allow any Para-Reining event to be multi-approved by any or all of the interested groups, allowing athletes a virtual smorgasbord of options for competitive development.

The role of USA Reining and USPEA are vital as they provide the key pipeline to high performance competition at the international level.  A main goal of the effort, Para-Reining athletes could one day earn a spot to represent their nation at international Para-Reining championships.

The goal of the USPEA is to foster growth in the Para-Equestrian disciplines.  From local horse shows to international Olympic Games, the USPEA will provide Para-Equestrians the knowledge of what they need to succeed.  The USPEA connects with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI), USA Reining and USEF which provide Para-Equestrians the top equestrian resources.

National Reining Horse Association’s Involvement
The National Reining Horse Association, partnering with their supporting entity, the Reining Horse Sports Foundation (RHSF), is proud to implement an Adaptive Reining Program beginning in 2014. As the standard setting-body for the sport of Reining world-wide, NRHA will approve and recognize Adaptive Reining classes and bring the sport to reining enthusiasts of all ability levels. The program’s standards, rules and policies will ensure NRHA’s ability to offer an inclusive, safe and fun environment for para-equestrians worldwide. RHSF will support the program in the form of scholarships and NRHA Affiliate grants that may be used to award prizes for Adaptive Reining classes.

NRHA is proud to partner with the American Quarter Horse Association, the United States Para-Equestrian Association and USA Reining to champion the cause of para-equestrians. “I’m very excited to be able to expand the access to the sport of Reining. The thrill of experiencing Reining is amazing. NRHA is very happy to provide an avenue in which we can welcome para-equestrians with the Adaptive Reining Program,” said NRHA President Beth Himes.

Our Loss – Steve Harris

From NCRHA – It is with a sad heart I must share the passing of our friend, Steve Harris. I know reining was made better for the conversations he started. He had a passion for doing things well and true love for the great horses he rode.

Steve Harris was a past NCRHA president, NRHA Champion, successful veterinarian, a father to four children and good friend to many. Steve had the honor of winning the Craig Howard Memorial for highest money winning Non Pro a couple of times but in 2009 he claimed the prize in an special way. He showed four money earning horses; three aged and one futurity horse. All four were foals he had bred. Two of these horses are still winning money with us in 2013.

Steve Harris’ Memorial service is Tuesday at 2 PM at Wayzata Community Church. The complete announcement will be in the Sunday Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Our Loss – Terry Howell

NRHA is saddened to hear that a dear member and friend, Terry Howell, passed away on October 29. The long-time NRHA member suffered a heart attack in her home in Asheville, N.C.

According to her friends, Terry was a tremendously inspiring person and a rare individual who could make them feel better just by having a conversation with her. Although Terry was paralyzed from the chest down, she rode almost everyday and competed actively in freestyle and rookie classes. In fact, in 2012 Terry placed in the top ten at the All American Quarter Horse Congress Non Pro Freestyle. Terry was passionate about Reining and helped NRHA demonstrate the sport during the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games aboard her horse Meadow Lark alongside NRHA Professional Mike Flarida.

A celebration of life and time of fellowship will be held on Friday, Nov. 1, 2013 from 7-9 p.m. in the chapel of Anders-Rice Funeral Home in Asheville, NC.

NRHA sends it condolences to her family and friends.

IHSA Announces Western Riders for AQHA Horsemanship Challenge

Contact LA Pomeroy, IHSA media liaison – PomeroyLA@aol.com - 413.586.6121

IHSA Announces Western Riders for AQHA Horsemanship Challenge

Fairfield, CT – (October 25, 2013) – The Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) and American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) are pleased to confirm eight IHSA Western Horsemanship riders will participate in the 2013 American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) Horsemanship Challenge, November 20-21, during the AQHA World Championship Show in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The IHSA riders selected include the 2013 IHSA National Championships’ AQHA High Point Rider (Austin Griffith, Ohio State University) and reserve AQHA High Point Rider (Ashley Winters, University of Findlay, who continued her season despite the grief of losing her AQHA show horse to cancer), and a member of the 2013 IHSA National Championships High Point Western Team, Julia Roberts, of West Texas A&M University, who was also selected in 2012 but was competing in collegiate judging (she and her WTAMU team went on to become reserve champions). Emily Honey, of Oregon State University, represents the second (Elizabeth Whitman, 2012) consecutive time OSU riders have earned a slot in the AQHA Horsemanship Challenge.

IHSA riders confirmed to compete in the AQHA Horsemanship Challenge are:IHSA Nationals 2013

Julia Roberts, West Texas A&M University

Austin Griffith, Ohio State University

Douglas Mohr, Ball State University

Emily Honey, Oregon State University

Alissa Frederick, Black Hawk College

Rebecca Strunk, Clemson University

Ashley Winters, University of Findlay

Kodi Anderson, North Central Texas College

Austin Griffith, a business and marketing major at Ohio State, cited both hard work and the IHSA as integral to the path leading him to OKC. The newly-minted AQHA High Point Rider from the 2013 IHSA National Championships is also a two-time (2008, 2009) winner at AQHA Congress.

“I was so excited when I received the invitation,” says the IHSA National’s 2013 reserve AQHA High Point Rider, Ashley Winters, a freshman majoring in Environmental Safety and Occupational Health and Western Equestrian Studies at The University of Findlay. “During the show season I lost my AQHA show horse to cancer. This was an extremely hard time for me and the only way to cope was to keep riding. I knew the open level was going to be really tough and worked really hard, practicing five times a week for reining and horsemanship. The Findlay IHSA Team has wonderful coaches. At Nationals, their advice was to go out there and show them what a freshman can do.” Now she gets her chance to show them at AQHA Worlds.

“This year has just been full of blessings for me, especially going to IHSA Nationals a second time,” says Julia Roberts, who rides on WTAMU’s IHSA National Champion team. “There is a saying that I live by, ‘Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard,’ by Tim Notke. This year’s hard work definitely paid off as I was named National Champion in Individual Open Horsemanship and Reserve National Champion in Team Open Horsemanship. Our Western team was also named National Champions — a first for WT! The blessings haven’t stopped now that I have been invited to ride in the Challenge. I am so proud to represent my coach, Amanda Love, and West Texas A&M. Without the support from my family at WT I wouldn’t be where I am today. To ride the quality of horses we will ride at this challenge will be amazing. I can’t wait for November!”

For Douglas Mohr, who will represent Ball State, it’s a dream come true. “Ever since hearing of the AQHA Collegiate Challenge, it’s been a dream to be selected and represent my university, and now that dream is a reality. It’s a huge honor to be one of eight IHSA riders picked, and I am very grateful. To be surrounded by the best collegiate riders will be a humbling and rewarding experience.” Mohr will pursue a masters in Occupational Therapy, having just earned his bachelor’s in Exercise Science.

Animal and Veterinary Science major, Rebecca Strunk (’15) adds, “I was honestly shocked to be invited to this prestigious event. It makes all the long hours of practice worth it. It’s an honor to represent Clemson University and hope to do so to the best of my abilities.”

The eight equestrian athletes representing their educational institutions in the Challenge were selected based on 2012-13 individual statistics for horsemanship. Preliminary AQHA Horsemanship Challenge competition will be Wednesday, Nov. 20, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the AQHA Horsemanship Challenge finals will be held the following evening.

SWRHA John Deere Open Futurity Winners – Larcombe & Revolution is Dun

Larcombe Wins John Deere Open Futurity on Revolution Is Dun

10-27-2013

When it came down to the second to last horse, Dany Tremblay was leading the pack with a 228.5 on The Wizter owned by MG Reiners of St. Paul, Quebec. Dell Hendricks was just behind with a 228 on Breakout Wrangler, owned by Dan Lindstrom of Gretna, Nebraska. Those are very high scores in futurity competition.

Then, it was Martin Larcombe’s turn on Revolution Is Dun, owned by XCS Ranch. “I knew there were a lot of high scores,” he said shortly after his run. “I just wanted to have a good go.”

Larcombe had better than a good go; he knocked one into the rafters with a scalding performance that netted a 230 point reward – good enough to win the Level 2, 3 and 4 Futurity.1381768_708915149135831_867902437_n

Larcombe has had Revolution Is Dun (Einsteins Revolution X Miss Whiz Done Dunit) since just after this year’s National Reining Breeders Classic in April, purchasing him for XCS Ranch owner Corinna Schumacher from Richard Pokluda and Dr. Bill Rhodes. “Richard did a great job of starting him and I really liked him although I looked at him three times before I bought him,” Larcombe remembers, then laughs. “I’m glad I did!”

He showed “Dallas” at the Tulsa Reining Classic and won the Level 2, and his sights are set, now, on the upcoming NRHA Futurity in Oklahoma City. Larcombe, originally from Australia, worked in Europe 8 years, where he got to know the Schumachers. When they decided to build a ranch in Texas, they hired him to run it and he’s been there now for the past two years.

John Deere Sales Promotion Coordinator Britt Cassaday and Regional Service Coordinator Doug Wick were on hand to present the John Deere Gator sponsored by John Deere and Pettit Machinery for the win. The Level 4 victory also netted $16,926, a Lawson Bronze and a trophy buckle. That, added to his take for the Levels 3 and 2 wins, gave him a total paycheck of $28,467!

A Southwest Reining Horse Association signature Golf Cart goes to the owner of the sire of the furthest advancing foal by a current-year SWRHA Stallion Auction donor, so Revolution Is Dun sire – Einsteins Revolution – netted a golf cart for owners Vandorp and Wagner.

Another golf cart goes each year to the winner of a drawing from stallion owners who have donated a breeding to the Southwest Reining Horse Association Stallion Auction. This year’s winners were Jack and Viola Scott, owners of Magnum Chic Dream.

Finishing as the Reserve Champion in the Level 3 was Dany Tremblay on The Wizster (Gallo Del Cielo X Miss Whizard Jac). The Reserve Title in the Level 2 went to Jared Leclair with a score of 225 on Electric Express (Jacs Electric Spark X Hot Coded Candy) owned by Terry Ranch of Hardin, Texas.

Earlier in the day, it was a rainy afternoon in Ardmore, Oklahoma, and inside the Hardy Murphy Coliseum, the lights were flickering, even going out during one run. But when Mirjam Stillo came on Little Joe Vintage, she illuminated the place, scoring 220.5 to win the John Deere Tractor Open Futurity Level 1 Championship.

Little Joe Vintage is owned by Harper Conner of Dallas, Texas, who also owns his sire, A Sparkling Vintage. Both horses were recently moved to Tom McCutcheon Reining Horses, where Mirjam trains, and A Sparkling Vintage will stand there in 2014. The Level 1 Championship came with a commemorative trophy buckle sponsored by Ardmore First Bank and Trust.

The John Deere Tractor Open Level 1 Reserve Championship went to Kim Obenhaus on Treasure Chest Whiz (Topsail Whiz X Diamonds For Chic) owned by Duane and Wendy Latimer of Overbrook, Oklahoma.
