The $1,000-Added SR National Reining Cow Horse Association/European Reined Cow Horse Association Four Crown Spectacular, presented by International Horse Press, makes its debut at Samisa Ranch, Sarzana, Italy, on July 22-24.

For the first time in Europe, Reined Cow Horse Competition will be featuring Steer Stopping.

The NRCHA/ERCHA SR Four Crown Spectacular is our first step to featuring Europe’s Greatest Horseman! The competition comprises four events (herd work, rein work, fence work, and steer stopping) completed by one horse and one rider. Horses must be ridden in a bridle.

During the event, the NRCHA/ERCHA Open, ERCHA Non Pro, and ERCHA Youth ancillary classes will also be offered. Making it all even sweeter is the special All Girls Division Award presented by RopinK Challenge: Recognition will go to the lady rider posting the highest composite score during the Four Crown Spectacular.


The Awards:
The Open & Non Pro Champions will receive a Custom Trophy Saddle and a Custom Trophy Buckle
The Open & Non Pro Reserve Champions will receive a Custom Trophy Buckle
The Youth Champion & Reserve Champion will receive a Custom Trophy Buckle
A Custom Trophy Buckle will go to the All Girls Division Champion and a Custom Trophy Buckle will go to the All Around Champion

We are proud to be able to launch the challenge and are just as proud to have 15 horse-rider combinations representing five nations (Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland) take part in the inaugural event.

A huge thank you to all our sponsors and to all those who believe in this ambitious feat, in particular the 15 riders entered—you are making history!
