2017 NRHA European Derby & Reining International de Lyon Entry Deadline is Today!

Once again Equita Lyon – a major event in the equestrian world – will be showcasing reining at its best. For the very first time the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) European Derby will be hosted during the prestigious event alongside the Reining International de Lyon.

The seventh edition of the NRHA European Derby will offer the €85,000-added* single purse Open and €31,000-added* single purse Non Pro divisions (*subject to change based on nominations). The Derby is open to 4,5,6 and 7-year-old horses nominated in the NRHA Nomination Program and, for the first time, the payout system will be based on a single purse which means that one purse is available for everyone to compete for (independently of eligibility division). For further clarification, view the video explanation


A full-slate of NRHA ancillary classes will be offered during the Reining International de Lyon. Highlighting the competition are the $35,000-added Reining International de Lyon Grand Prix Open and the $15,000-added Reining International de Lyon Grand Prix Non Pro. In the past years, the Grand Prix open and non pro competitions have had a huge impact in determining the NRHA World Champions!

Adding further excitement will be the French Futurity.
