10th anniversary
of SVAG CS Classic

This year’s SVAG CS CLASSIC was completely surrounded by the number “10”, and that still makes us speechless:
10 years ago we held this show on the CS Ranch for the first time under the title “CS Classic”.
10 years of competition, 10 years of Reiningsport class A, 10 years of fun, 10 years of excitement.
10 years of the SVAG CS CLASSIC – one more reason to have made the show week an experience for everybody. 


Reining is a wonderful sport. Apart from love for the horse, it also requires discipline and training, but also sensitivity,
sensitivity and team spirit. Fall in love with the horses and the sport as we have done long time ago.

The CS Ranch is the biggest and most modern private reining facility in Switzerland, ideally situated and equipped for professional reining lessons. Owner Corinna Schumacher is constantly striving for the CS Ranch to remain the best environment for reining horses. The roofed horse-riding arena measures 95x50 metres and can accomodate more than 1400 spectators. Visit our website at

Head Horse Trainer of CS Ranch is Cira Baeck from Belgium. Since 2006, CS Ranch has made its mark for hosting professional reining shows such as Swiss Slide and from 2009 the famous SVAG CS Classic. Showmanager Eric Obrecht and his team from CS Ranch are always making a big effort to impress riders, officials and spectators with our SVAG CS Classic.


Reining is one of nine disciplines of western riding, considered by some as the ”dressage“ of the western riding world. It is the only western riding discipline recognized by the FEI. It originates from the working movements of horses and riders when herding cattle.
Reining became an FEI discipline in 2002 and is designed to show the athletic ability of ranch-type horses in the confines of a show arena. Contestants are required to run one of 10 approved patterns, divided into seven or eight manoeuvres, including small slow circles, large fast circles, flying lead changes, 360 degree spins and what is generally considered the signature move of the reining horse, the sliding stop.
Reining is growing in popularity around the world. Despite the seemingly relaxed attitude of both horse and rider and the loose reins typically used, Reining demands high levels of concentration and riding skills with smoothness, finesse, attitude, quickness and authority all being closely watched.


Scoring will be on a basis of 0-Infinity, with 70 denoting an average performance. There will be 5 judges scoring each ride, with the top and bottom scores dropped to give an average final score. In the event of a tie, the scores from all 5 judges are added for the three counting Team Members.

Riders will receive a score of zero if:

A judge is required to penalize a horse 1/2 of a point for a delayed change of lead by one stride, where the lead change is required by the pattern description and deduct one point for over or under spinning up to 1/4 of a turn.
