Manerbio – Close to 340 horses are preparing to make their way to the Palasturla Equestrian Center in Manerbio, Italy, where the 2015 edition of the NRHA European Derby & Pre Futurity will be held next week. The numbers prove that the fifth edition of the event is already a success, considering the tight show schedule European reiners have been on during this season.

Sabine Lisec and Chuck Klipfel, of KL Performance Horses, have been huge supporters of both the NRHA European Futurity and European Derby. For the third year running, KL Performance Horses will once again be the main sponsors of the European Derby. “It’s fun watching the garden grow and every year it gets better and that’s what makes this event so much fun,” says Chuck Klipfel. “The European Nomination Program is what is making it grow and the figures are really impressive: we decided that we should put more interest in the lower levels and it’s working!”

Just as enthusiastic is Sabine Lisec: “We have always paid particular attention to the younger riders and what we are seeing here at the Euro Futurity and Euro Derby are more and more upcoming young reiners that keep working hard and at the same time have a lot of fun. This wonderful atmosphere helps us all to move on,” says Sabine. “Everything begins from the passion we have and that is why Chuck and I are doing all this! Another important aspect for us is the NRHA Medications policy that has always been implemented here and which also helped implement a policy in the US. It is now truly fair for everybody.”

Supporting the 2015 NRHA European Derby & Pre Futurity are:
Premium Sponsors: Markel Insurance and Arcese Quarter Horses
Platinum Sponsors: Bob's Saddles, Cardinal Reining Horses, Cowboy's Magazine and Smiraprint
Gold Sponsors: Quarter Dream and 23 Quarter Horses/Fonck Performance Horses
