U.S. Reiners Lead After WEG Qualifier

September 18, 2002–As expected, the USA dominated reining competition today.
America had a 20-point edge over second place Canada, as Tom McCutcheon,
Shawn Flarida and Scott McCutcheon were 1-2-3, all within 2.5 points of each
other. This is only a qualifying class, however. They’ll start clean again on
Sunday, when the Nations’ Cup and individual medals will be awarded.

Everyone was thrilled to play to a packed house for the debut of reining at
the WEG.

“We’re proud, humbled and excited to be here and show horses at this level,”
said chef d’equipe Jeff Petska.
