Warm atmosphere guaranteed on the Western pole of Equita Lyon ... And especially during the Reining International Lyon NRHA Open Saturday, November 2!

You will find, as every year, the best reining riders in the world come to compete in one of the most important open grand prix of Europe!

In Reining, the rider must control his mount accurately and without resistance. In competition, he must make several figures like circles, half-turns and sliding-stops whose sequence is called "Pattern". All this must be done by holding the reins only with one hand! A discipline in full swing in France in recent decades and particularly impressive for novices!

You'll also find Reining's flagship classes like the Grand Prix Non Pro and the Futurities (young horses classes) all week long!

The Barrel Racing, now well known to the public of Lyon is a discipline that requires riders and horses to combine speed and dexterity. The goal is simple: make a trefoil course, around the three cans arranged in a triangle on the track, and as quickly as possible. In Lyon, the Barrel and Races quarry is the scene of the Coupe de France and European Cup in this breathtaking discipline. A major event for riders and a great show for the public! Adrenaline and thrills guaranteed!

Equita Lyon Western Horse Show also hosts Pole Bending competitions! Like the Giant Super Giant well known in the world of skiing, Pole Bending requires a perfect coordination between the horse and the rider!

CUTTING & RANCH SORTING

Equita Lyon 2018 - Gianluca Murani & Catty Gucci Girl - © Dead or Alive

Very popular discipline in the United States cutting was born from work on the ranch at the end of the 18th century. Each calf had to be isolated from the herd to be tagged, cared for and then grouped in different batches. The cutting became a sport when the cowboys organized the first competitions to determine which was the best horse to isolate the calves.

Derived from Cutting, Ranch Sorting is also an important discipline at Equita Lyon! On the track reserved for the work of the calves, two circles are materialized. In the circle A is a lot of 10 beasts numbered from 0 to 9 and 2 animals without number. A team of two riders enters the circle B. The judge assigns the animal number by which the sorting must begin. The riders must then sort and pass in the circle B the beasts numbered one after the other in numerical order. Once in the round B, the animals must not return in the circle A. The two animals without number must remain in the circle A.
