Dear media members,
We would like to welcome you to our shows.
Reining is a wonderful discipline of western horse riding, please have a look at the information available on this page.
It must be our first priority that all competitions can take place under the best possible conditions. Therefore SMA asks media representatives to respect the competitors, riders and horses, as well as officials and the event crew. We expect media representatives to act fair, in conformity with the German Press Code (http://www.presserat.de/pressekodex) and with the Accreditation Agreement.
Would you therefore please be aware of the following:
All media representatives must act professionally at all times, refrain from interfering with any of the competitors/competitions and follow all instructions given by the event crew.
The signed and stamped confirmation of accreditation must be with the media representative at all times and must be shown upon request of the event crew and/or security.
In case of violations of the Accreditation Agreement, SMA explicitly reserves the right to bar media representatives from participating in the event.
Important: Application for accreditation can only be made with the official accreditation form which can be downloaded here prior to any event. Accreditations are only valid with a stamp and signature. If the form is not stamped and signed after the application procedure, it means accreditation has not been granted and access will be denied.
Accreditation will only be valid with the official form to be downloaded here prior to any event.
All applications for accreditation will need to be directed to the address marked in this specific form. Any other form of application for accreditation will not be possible.
In 2023, SMA is hosting two events. All journalists are welcome to attend the World Reining Championships (accreditation form below) from 6 to 8 July. For the NRHA European Affiliate Championships, SMA will be able to provide results via its facebook page called “CS Classic Reining Shows”.
