Europe's number one western horse show, AMERICANA is back for 2013 - showcasing some of the best riders from all over Europe, the US and Canada.

Between August 28th and September 1st Augsburg in Germany will play host to daily horse show classes, with more than 400 horses involved.

There is plenty of prize money on offer to the worthy winners and visitors can expect to see thrilling evening shows, as well as a western fashion show and Europe's biggest equestrian trade fair with 240 vendors selling just about everything a horse or rider could need.

You can also enjoy daily live country music from the legendary Red Grizzly Saloon at the traditional Western Town.

AMERICANA is Europe's biggest specialised fair for western and recreational riders and is a great place to go if you want to immerse yourself in cowboy and cowgirl fashion - as well as the western riding styles.

Whether you're an old hat at western riding or looking to take your passion for riding and equestrian style to the next level AMERICANA is an event not to be missed.

It could provide not only a great place to take style inspiration from but a great educational platform for learning more about what it takes to become a successful competitive western rider.
