The Global Reining Sport Group wants to see everyone in Tulsa this year and has initiated new policies to make it easier for exhibitors to attend!
Each first-time attendee to the Tulsa Reining Classic who brings four horses will get the fifth stall FREE. Returning attendees will receive a FREE STALL for every twelve stalls that includes at least one aged event entry.
There are lots of other reasons to come to the Tulsa Reining Classic in 2014. Of course there are the South Central Regional Affiliate Finals (hosted by this show since 2004), as well as the familiar Tulsa Reining Classic Limited Aged events and Ancillary classes. The Expo Square facility is functional, beautiful and is continually improving, rivaling any facility in the country.
This year with the World Equestrian Games going on at the same time as the show creates an opportunity to enjoy live feeds of the competition sponsored by Jerry Kimmel Reining Horses as Tem USA is supported from Tulsa town!
According to Cheryl Cody, “Although we’ll miss the presence of some of the USA’s top trainers and riders – like Shawn Flarida, Andrea Fappani, Tom and Mandy McCutcheon, Jordan Larson and Troy Heikes – who won’t be able to attend due to the WEG, we’re going to have a great show and we’ll be pulling for them to bring home the Gold!”
With $60,000 added, the Hollywoodstinseltown Open Futurity is a great showcase for horses as is its counterpart Turnabout Farm Non Pro Futurity with $26,000 added money. Plus the Cardinal Reining Horses Open and Non Pro Derby adds a total of $56,000, while the Darling 888 Ranch Developing Horse Futurity ($19,500 added) and the Novice Horse Derby ($12,000 added) have very quickly become popular by providing an opportunities for horses at various stages of training.

Many-time champion and renowned coach and judge Terry Thompson will present a “View From The Judge’s Chair” classroom seminar to help attendees really understand their scores and how to make them better! A special Tulsa Reining Classic Youth Evening takes place on Friday evening, and features the very popular Lead Line Reining along with Youth Free-style Reining.
