Johan Svensson will
bring a quarter horse stallion to the show, CB Too Tuff, owned
by Okna Ranch (SWE), him and the stallion has been to Germany
once before and did pretty ok. This is the first performance Johan
does as a team member and the first really big event they (the
horse & rider) are doing. Johan is really looking forward to do
this, meet the competitors from Europe and se what is needed of
him to be able to reach the same level.
Waldemar Wass who’s
just come home from a two month stay at the Sterling Ranch USA.
He has been more on horseback than on the ground according to
himself, riding horses from breakfast to supper, has made him
a better rider he hope.
He and the German owned
stallion Sr Too Doc has had a very successful year 2004. And according
to Waldemar the horse feels really smooth and supple and he is
confident with his horse. Waldemar has a history of working at
Time Stables and Kai Thielk during 2003, where “Walle” also competed
some in Germany.
The last but not least
competitor from the Swedish Team is Anders Josefsson, who has
been fortunate enough to borrow a horse from Steffen Breug whom
he works a lot together with. Anders will go down to Steffen on
Tuesday to ride the horse some before the show and then he will
join the team on Thursday. The horse is kindly provided by Ines
Maria Bors, and is a quarter horse stallion born 96 and under
the name of Commander Fair Sam.

effort. Sweden has about 100 Reiners that has decides that they
will go for Reining and nothing else, they are competing at the
NRHA shows and also at the Swedish reining Horse assn Shows.
Reining is growing
