Lexington, KY
- The final American CRI of the year takes place this weekend at the AQHA World Championship Show as reiners from across the country look to close out their 2012 season on a high note. A total of 13 horse-and-rider combinations are set to contest the CRI3* in Oklahoma City, OK on Friday, November 9. This weekend's competition has added significance as it also serves as the first qualifier for U.S. reiners looking to compete at the selection trials for the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.

Craig Schmersal (Overbrook, OK) will look to showcase the skills that helped him earn Team Gold and Individual Silver at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Schmersal is among the most decorated reiners in the U.S. having represented his country three times in World Championship competition. He will ride San Juan Ranch's Whizs Katrina in Oklahoma City.

Pete Kyle (Whitesboro, TX) will be among the busiest competitors as he will ride three horses in CRI competition. Kyle brings his 2012 Adequan/USEF National Reining Reserve Champion, A Ruf Gal, to the AQHA World Championship Show as he looks to add another victory to his extensive resume. He will also ride John McElreath's Gimme Major Bucks and Ray Hatfield's Dun It Gotta Gal.
