For the third time a big international western horse show was part of the renowned  Dortmunder Westfalenhallen Show. 145 competitors had come to compete in this special combination of western horse show, famous conventional show and exhibition.

The show started on Friday night with the AQHA Senior Reining and the NRHA Lawson  Bronze Trophies. 40 competitors had nominated for the Senior Reining, the winner being Nico Hoermann (GER) astride Lil Ruf Cody (owner Monika and Rolf Reinschmidt) scoring a 146.5. Sylvia Rzepka and Golden Mac Jac (owner Peter Prokes, AUT) placed second. Judge Joe Carter saw Daniel Klein and Flip N Rooster (owner Markus Geißler) on the third place, whereas judge Andrea Simons placed Michael Saupe with Shiners Vintage (owner Gerd Wilhelm) third.



The NRHA Lawson Bronze Trophy Champions: Bernard  Fonck and Agnes Ramme

The Open Bronze Trophy went to Belgium with Bernhard Fonck and Roosters Spurs (owner Dr. Sabine Wagner, GER) scoring a great 145.5. Vern Sapergia astride Slide on Silver and Ernst Emanuel astride Shotgunner (owner Anja Deutzmann) tied for second place scoring 143.

In the Non Bro Bronze Trophy, there was a tie on the first place. Both Agnes Ramme astride Whiz A Gold and Dagmar Banas astride Copper Quixote Doc scored a 143.5. So they decided on tossing a coin.

It was Agnes’ second Trophy in a row as she had already won the one in Bremen two weeks before.
