Equitana NRHA Reining Cup Champion 2003
[March 14, 2003 - h.12:45 AM]
Volker Schmitt and ARC Surprisingly Smart. After a superb performance with long smooth stops, fast circles with top speed control and top spins Volker Schmitt won the Equitana NRHA Reining Cup for the third time in a row! Thistime he was astride ARC Surprisingly Smart, 5-year old beautiful bay stallion by Surprise Enterprise out of a mare by Smart Little Lena, which had won $ 106 000.-- in the USA herself. ARC Surprisinly Smart is owned by Hans-Peter Reiss, Switzerland.
10 riders had been invited by the NRHA of Germany, nine finally competed. The Equitana indoor arena was crowded with people; many potential spectators had to wait in front of the entrances as there weren't enough seats. And the rides were really a sight to see! After winning the Equitana Reining Cup 1999 with Puro Chic and 2001 with Chex Enterprise, Volker Schmitt now became Champion with a horse he has trained himself. With 149 points, he rode high score yesterday, Juergen Pieper astride GB Jac placing second after a marvelous ride (146 points) and Chris Feichter (Italy) placing third astride Braams Quarter Horses' Mr BH Jac (145.5 points).
