The bronze medal went to the first European team from Italy that scored 646. The German team lost their goal of bronze by three points.
The rides for the individual medals became really competitive when the juror announced a run off for the silver and bronze medals between the Canadian rider Shawna SAPERGIA and the American Tom MC CUTCHEON who holds several important Reining titles in his own country. In the end with the help of the crowd MC CUTCHEON lifted his performance to a higher level to clinch the silver medal leaving the third position for the Canadian SAPERGIA.
With confidence and amazing style Shawn W FLARIDA was the absolute leader on the first Reining competition in a World Equestrian Games, winning the Gold medal with 221.05 points, his maneuvers and technique made a place for him in the history books as the first ever reining world champion.
