NRHA European Futurity 2014 Kreuth (Germany), March 30 – April 05, 2014

By Svensson Ranch | April 2, 2014

The qualifying go-round of the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) European Open Futurity offering the €92.000-added level (L) 4, €35.000-added L 3, the €15.000-added or more L 2 and the €7.500-added or more L 1 was held in Kreuth, Germany, March 31.

Riding Claudia Scheunemann’s Dunits Smokin Gun, an own son of Gunner and out of Dunit Sugar Quixote (by Hollywood Dun It), Ann Poels-Fonck was the last to show in the Open Futurity qualifying go-round. Aboard the stallion bred and nominated by Willem Langendoen, she closed her run with a 220.5 and tied to win the go-round along with Duane Latimer and Markus Gerbert.

Latimer had set the bar early in the second section with a 220.5 riding Gotta Nifty Gun (Dun It Gotta Gun x Custom Nifty Nic x Custom Crome) for owners Luga Quarter Horses. This stallion was bred and nominated (for North America) by Carl Lambert and nominated for Europe by Luga Quarter Horses.

Also earning a 220.5 was Gebert and Charly Step N Cool (Wimpys Little Step x Charlys Cool Running x As Smart As Charley), owned by Angelika Gebert. The pair closed the 2013 show season by winning all four levels of the NRHA/Italian Reining Horse Association (IRHA) Open Futurity last year. The athletic bay mare was bred and nominated by Michael Schubert and boasts over $58,000 in NRHA LTE.
Nina Lill and Forever Gun
Nina Lill of Germany riding Forevergun (One Gun x Es Sweet Little Bar) a stallion bred and nominated by Alice Marinoni and owned by Franz Jaksche, held the lead in the Level 3 division after having posted a 219.5 in the first section of the go-round yesterday.

Leading the L 2 and the L 1 Open qualifying go round is Susanne Schnell. The German rider closed her run with a 216 riding Dunits Finest Stop (Footworks Finest x Smart Katy Rio x Ill Be Smart), a stallion bred and nominated by Christine Bayer and owned by Wolfgang Neuendorff.

Team Australia wins Road to the Horse!

By Svensson Ranch | March 12, 2012

A well deserved win for Guy McLean and Dan James. Guy´s horse was a challenge the first day but he believed so much in him that he had claimed him for the $5,000 that the horses are for sale for. I really enjoyed to see the Obstacle Courses and was impress of all the Teams!

Gidget´s maternal brother became World Champion

By Svensson Ranch | November 7, 2011

Carol Metcalf and Little Diamond Gunner mark a 217 to win a world championship in Junior Reining.

Carol Metcalf wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when she hauled Little Diamond Gunner to his first APHA competition, which was the APHA World Championship Show on November 2. Working out of her trailer for the competition was different for the pair—Carol says she usually prefers to give the 5-year-old sorrel overo stallion a few days to settle in on the show grounds. However, the duo entered the John Justin Arena in tune with one another, helping them mark across the board in the mid-70s to win a world championship in Junior Reining and whetting Carol’s competitive appetite for even more success at this year’s show.
