For the third time, top reining riders and horses met in Mooslargue, France, at the beautiful HorseAcademy facility for the World Reining Trophy. The show offerd a purse of more than USD 100.000,-- . For the first time, the show was judged by five judges: Allen Mitchells (USA), Eugenio Latorre (ITA), Jan Boogaerts (BEL), Rick Lemay (SWE) and Ralf Hesselschwerdt (GER).

More than 140 horses competed in six classes, which was slightly less than in the years before. This was partly due to the World Equestrian Games in a few months, which prevented potential WEG candidates from competing like those from Switzerland and Germany. Also, some top competitors from the U.S.A. and Italy excused themselves because of the tight show schedule this year. Nevertheless, the World Reining Trophy became another great highlight of the European reining shows again. Visitors saw great reinings, both in the Bronze Trophiers and in Intermediate and Limited Open. Looking at the scores of the Bronze Trophies, they seem to be lower than last year, but one has to take into consideration that the judges were not generous in awarding plus points here. A 72 here would have been a 74 else where.


Martin Larcombe becomes Bronze Trophy Open Champion for the second time
There were 36 competitors in the Open Bronze Trophy. 21 of them made it to the final, the best being Emanuel Ernst (GER) astride Chickle Me Please (219.5). But in the end, it was Martin Larcombe (AUS) again, whowon the Open Lawson Trophy which offered a purse of over USD 68 000,-- this year. Heaving won the 2004  WRT astride ARC Oak Enterprise, he now took the title and more than USD 15 000,-- with Red Chic Peppy. This stallion, owned by  Maria Bianchi (ITA) was in the finals before placing third in 2004 and 15th in 2005. The two gave a wonderful presentation with smooth speed control, tremendously fast and flat spins and superb Stopps scoring a 222. Not even Roosters Spurs (owner Dr. Sabine Wagner, GER) and Bernard Fonck (BEL) gould surpass this score although they gave a marvelous presentation scoring a 221.5. Shania Snapper (owner Johanna Binder, GER) and  Morey Fisk placed third.

Andrea Gembe wins Limited Non Pro
Scoring a 210, Andrea Gembe (GER) and her Listo Pep won the Limited Non Pro in Mooslargue. The World Reining Trophy was their first show together, which you could still see in some minor disagreements like in the first speed control. But the gelding by Listo Lena that as bred by Helmut Schmaus-Gerstenberg and had been NRHA Breeders Futurity Finalist, gave a wonderful performance and could win points especially in the second spin and in the stops. David Roux (FRA) astride  Power Snap and Marc Andries (BEL) astride Diamond Lynnea tied for second place scoring a 209.5. Claude Risoli (FRA) and Isa Topsail Whiz placed fourth (206,5).
