National Reining Horse Association to Sponsor 2010 WEG

The World Games 2010 Foundation today announced the National Reining Horse Association as a sponsor of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.  

“NRHA is proud to announce our official partnership with the Games and is thrilled to have this special opportunity to bring the excitement of Reining to competitors and spectators worldwide,” said NRHA Executive Director Dan Wall. “We are committed to growing the discipline both here in the United States and abroad, and no venue is better than the 2010 Games to showcase our sport and athletes.”

NRHA is a long-time supporter of the Games and the global expansion of Reining. NRHA provides support and input to enhance the 2010 Games’ Reining competition format, including an augmented purse, deeper payouts for team and individuals, and increased days of competition.

Reining was added to the FEI as a discipline in 2000 and was featured for the first time in 2002 at the FEI World Equestrian Games in Jerez, Spain. The reining competitions at the 2006 Games in Aachen, Germany, launched the discipline and its athletes into fame, with sold-out performances and loud, fanatical crowds.
