Saturday closed the great edition of the 2019 National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) European Affiliate Championship held at Tuse Creek Ranch, Regstrup, Denmark, managed by NRHA Norway and NRHA Denmark. Close to 150 horses made their way to the great facility and a total of over 450 entries!

The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) European Affiliate Championship, managed by NRHA Denmark and NRHA Norway, provided yet another day of intense competition. It was a great day for Benelux as Tiara van Dongen of the Netherlands and Jody Fonck of Belgium clinched the NRHA EA Intermediate Open and Youth 13 & Under Championships respectively.

No doubt about it. Rollz Royce, sired by Dual Smart Rey, owned the Metallic Cat NCHA Classic Challenge Open Finals, following a riveting 229-point run under Beau Galyean, for owner Thomas Guinn, Philadelphia, Miss. Duramax Dually, shown by Wesley Galyean for the Glover/Galyean Partnership, Claremore, Okla., was reserve champion with 222.5 points, and Hott Heels, under Lloyd Cox for Julie Jarma, Whitesboro, Tex., placed third with 222 points.

The Norwegian flag flew high today in Regstrup, Denmark, where the 2019 National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) European Affiliate Championship is being held.

Jody McGlothlin’s win aboard Somethingtobelievein in Wednesday’s NCHA Classic Challenge Non-Pro Limited might not have been quite as thrilling as her win on the talented mare in the 2016 NCHA Futurity Non-Pro Limited, but as their last run together in Will Rogers Coliseum, it was equally as significant. McGlothlin scored 222 points to claim the Classic Challenge Non-Pro Limited championship, while Lucchese Cogdell took reserve with 219 points, and Kolby Don Moore placed third with 217.5 points, in the 12-rider field.

Close to 150 horses with riders representing 12 Nations (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia and Sweden) are at the Scandinavian show vying for the prestigious titles.
