first CRI (Concours de Reining Internationale) was held at Meaford,
Ontario, on July 16. The class, hosted by Y Not Farms, was a tremendous
success. Seven Canadian riders accepted the challenge to compete
for the two positions to represent Canada at the Federation Equestre
Internationale (FEI) World Reining Masters Finals presented by NetJets,
to be held at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City, December 2, 2004.
Cody Sapergia, riding
Mega Ditto, owned by Sally Broten of River Falls, Wisconsin, seized
first place with a score of 221. Sapergia won $1,400 to cinch
one of the two positions for Canada. Guy Robertson of Manitoba,
riding Freeway Frank owned by Lorris Vatnsdal of Roseau, Minnesota,
placed second with a score of 219 to earn $1,100. Third place
went to Sophie Laverdiere riding the Raynald Laverdiere entry,
Smart Little Tori, with a score of 218. Laverdiere took home $850
for third place.
Canadian rider Francois
Gauthier, of Lucama, North Carolina, earned fourth, fifth and
sixth place with Its All About Cash, owned by Equine Plus; Little
Patrasha Gump, owned by Harold Lepler; and Boggierima, owned by
Gauthier. Gauthier's earnings for the three placings totaled $1,350,
which secured second place in monies earned and the right to ride
for Canada at the FEI World Reining Masters Finals.
Don Quintana, also
owned by Gauthier and ridden by Shawna Sapergia took the final
placing to earn $300.

CRI hosted in Canada this year, these are the final results for
the Canadian riders who will represent Canada at the FEI World
Reining Masters Finals, which will be held in conjunction with
the 2004 NRHA Futurity & Championship Show, November 25 - December
4. The FEI World Reining Masters Finals is sponsored by Classic
