Cremona, March 24 – In 2009, the very first edition of the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) European Futurity took place in Kreuth, Germany. Open to 4-year-old horses, the event gained momentum as the years went by. In 2011 the NRHA European Nomination Program kicked-in, making only nominated horses eligible to compete in what has become today one of Europe’s most successful events. Once again, Sabine Lisec and Chuck Klipfel of KL Performance Horses, are the main sponsors of the event.

This year, the renowned Ostbayernhalle of Kreuth passed the reins to CremonaFiere in Cremona, Italy, the venue that has been hosting the Italian Reining Horse Association’s (IRHA) Futurity for the past two years. Managing the NRHA owned event is IRHA along with TeamForYou. Bound to be a success, the gates of the historic fair grounds will open today to Europe’s best reiners, vying for the coveted titles of Open and Non Pro Futurity champions in the 4 levels offered.

On Monday March 27, the qualifying go-round of the Open Futurity – counting over 100 entries – will light up the oval arena in Cremona. The following day, over 50 horse-rider-combinations will compete for a spot in the non pro finals. Run in a qualifying go-round and clean slate finals, the Non Pro Futurity finals will take place on Friday, March 31. The Open finals will round-up the 2017 edition of the Euro Futurity on Saturday, April 1. A full-slate of NRHA approved classes will also be offered adding excitement to the show.
