A warm welcome to another Summer of Reining!

From July 3 to 7, we proudly present another highlight in our long tradition of reining jewels: SVAG CS Classic 2018 to be presented along with SVAG CS Maturity 2018. We look forward to welcoming all of you at CS Ranch and enjoy another beautiful show week. 

In the summer of 2017, CS Ranch was the location for a premiere in Reining sports, when for the first time ever, the SVAG FEI Reining World Championships Young & Junior Riders events were held. Check for more information at In the previous year we had hosted SVAG FEI Reining World Championships Senior Riders, something we are equally proud of.

We are sure that this year's participants will dazzle and impress us again, and we look forward to sharing more summers of reining with you in the coming years.

Entry for all our shows is free; we are looking forward to welcoming all of you!

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.
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.
Although part of a sporting lifestyle closely linked to the spirit of the Wild West, 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.
Reining originated from moves that a cattle horse makes in performing its duties and was first recognised as a sport in 1949 by the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA).
