With an effort to support the sport of Reining locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, The International offers segments of each level of competition in a way that is unparalleled in the industry.
In 2006, Denver hosted the prestigious FEI World Reining Masters competition and The International was created in order to surround that high level event with competitors and enthusiasts of all levels of sport. The International successfully operated until 2009, when a short break was required because of conflicting dates with the 2010 FEI World Equestrian Games.
Now, back in full spin, The International promises high-level sport for riders of all levels from Youth and Rookie to elite international high performance competitor. Plus, The International is very proud to bring back the Loot For Grassroots, offering a planned $100,000 for Non Pro competitors.
Virtual Horse Help interviewed competitor Khalid El Khoumsi of Morocco with Eric Laporte about traveling to Denver and competing at an international level.
