Simply unique – that is the Americana’s slogan, and the 2013 Americana proved this once again. Even after 27 years, the Americana is still setting records. More than 44,000 fans visited Europe’s premier western riding event to watch high-class western riding shows, including the FEI European Reining Championship. Visitors came from as far as Australia to Augsburg, which meant great business opportunities for the 281 exhibitors, most of whom said they had never had so many potential buyers before.
The Americana also set records with its entertainment program, which included a bigger Western Town with the legendary Red Grizzly Saloon, Americana-Forum and Parelli-Ring, the new extreme trail-parcours in the open-air area, plus a new show farrier’s place. From the first day on, the Americana received more visitors than ever before. On Saturday, it was difficult to walk through the exhibition aisles, which were crowded with people.
The Americana would be nothing without its staff of enthusiastic and horse-loving people. Many of them have been on the Americana crew for quite a few years; some of them for more than 20 years. After the huge success of 2013, the show management already has new ideas for the 2015 edition, scheduled for September 2-6.
