This week marks the start of the High Roller Reining Classic at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. If you’re a reining fan and you haven’t been to South Point; put it on your bucket list. This hotel boasts five restaurants, a 64 lane bowling alley, full service spa under the same roof as three show pens and air conditioned fly free stabling for 1200 horses! What more does one need!
HRRC has a totally different feel than most competitions. This week will feature both Quarter Horse and Arabians and there will also be a Stallion Service auction. The environment is competitive but what makes the event so special is that everyone works and plays together. They stay up until the wee hours of the morning working in the arena on their slides, spins and roll backs, and you’ll find them the next day together in the stands.
Ice Horse riders Matt Mills and Tom McCuthceon are participating in the Open Derby – Good luck to you both.
