Hot off the presses, the 2011 Rolex Three Day event will incorporate one of the most exciting and popular events in the equestrian sport, Reining!
Reining was the star of the show at the World Equestrian Games 2010 and was one of the most exciting events! This sport brings the excitement of western working events and the elegance of classical training into one event that showcases the versatility and power of the Western working horse! Riders perform a pattern the first night and they are judged on how well they perform that series of movements including the sliding stop and the spin. These are two of the more well known moves that make reining iconic. On the second night the audience will view Freestyle Reining that is a choreographed pattern by horse and rider that uses a bit of creativity to bring the elegance of reining to life!
The Kentucky Reining Cup will be held in the all new Alltech Arena. This is the same venue for the Breyerfest Live shows! This lovely arena played host to the Reining competition at the WEG and makes a wonderful venue for this lovely event! This event will be the only five star Reining event in the Western Hemisphere this year! This event is sure to become a favorite for many and paired with the Rolex 3 Day Event, this is shaping up to be an exciting weekend of equestrian competition!
Breyer has a stable full of Western stars that you can add to your stable from Golden Oak Stables. One of the most popular Breyer horses in recent years is Big Chex to Cash. This reining horse is a champion of the ring in both real life and in the Breyer horse ring. He’s a stunning palomino pinto with a bit of a metallic touch to his coat. He’s got high white socks and a small amount of spotting on his belly. His coat is full of dapples all over and he even carries his ranch brand! Chex has become a favorite among Breyer collectors for his high level of detail and stunning appearance!
Check out the all new Kentucky Reigning Cup along with the Rolex Three Day in Lexington Kentucky April 28th – 30th 2011, and if you can’t make it to Kentucky you can still bring a champion home with Golden Oak Stables!
