In July we travelled to European Amateur Team Cup in Le Pin, France together with the Swiss SQHA team. This Team Cup takes place every other year and there are teams from various european Quarter Horse Associations competing agains each other.
On friday there was an AQHA show as a warm up for the team cup. Snap and me went into the Open Westernriding and the Open Reining and could win both classes, each under both judges. So the weekend had started off really good for me and Snap.
On saturday the team cup finally started with the classes Showmanship, Horsemanship, Pleasure and Ranch Riding. Snap and me were competing in the ranch riding and could win this big and also strong class with a score of 153,5 which brought us some important points for team Switzerland.
On sunday it was time for Trail. Westernriding, Reining, Hunter and Huntseat. Snap and me went into the Westernriding and of course the Reining. In the Westernriding (only our 3rd WR class!) we made some mistakes and ended up with a good 7th place. In the reining we wanted to go big again and with just some tiny mistakes we scored a 147 to win the class and get some more important points for Team Switzerland.
In the end our Swiss Team claimed Reserve Champion which is a really good result as we have beaten great nations like Italy and France.
So we’ve had a really successful show, even better than we had expected! Let’s hope we keep going like this 🙂
