Top Reiners Travel to Adequan/USEF Open Reining National Championship

RELEASE: August 29, 2013

Lexington, KY – The Ariat Tulsa Reining Classic plays host to the Adequan/USEF Open Reining National Championship, drawing the country’s top reiners to vie for a national title. Six horse-and-rider combinations will take to the Expo Square in Tulsa, Oklahoma on August 30 with hopes of executing a pattern that will earn them a score high enough to be named champion.

The 2011 Adequan/USEF Open Reining National Champion, Craig Schmersal (Overbrook, OK), returns to the championship aiming to win another title. He will partner with his and Ginger Schmersal’s Pale Face Dunnit, a six-year-old Quarter Horse stallion.

Last year’s Reserve Champion Pete Kyle (Whitesboro, TX) returns to the championship with his own seven-year-old Quarter Horse mare A Ruf Gal. The pair looks to improve upon their 2012 performance to claim a national title.

Tim McQuay (Tioga, TX) finished fourth in the Kentucky Reining Cup earlier this year and remains on top form. He will ride Jerry Kimmel’s 13-year-old Quarter Horse stallion Mister Nicadual. The pair won Team Gold and Individual Silver medals at the 2006 FEI World Equestrian Games.

Though the field is small, it is filled with elite competitors and horses in what will surely be an exciting championship.
