Lisa Coulter Number One in Both the FEI Reining Rankings and Standings


Ottawa, ON—The Canadian Reining Com- mittee (CRC) is pleased to announce that at the conclusion of the 2010 FEI Reining sea- son Lisa Coulter of Princeton, BC, has earned the top spot on both the FEI Reining World Ranking and World Standing Lists. Riding Angels Mark, Bob Thompson’s eight-year-old paint gelding, Coulter topped the FEI Reining World Standings List, which is calculated based on results accu- mulated with only one horse, with a total of 73 points. Italy’s Nicola Brunelli, riding Spat A Blue, finished in second with 62. Coulter also topped the FEI Reining World Ranking List with a total of 100 points. This achievement was calculated using the 73 points she earned with Angels Mark and the results she earned riding Western Whiz, an eight-year-old Quarter Horse gelding also owned by Bob Thomp- son.


“2010 was one of the most tumultuous years of my riding career, with major highs and major lows. I was excited to make the team to represent Canada at WEG only to have the biggest upset of my career when my horse failed the jog at WEG,” said Coul- ter. “I had been having a great year at CRI competitions and other events, and knew I was ready for a big run. Although I am sav- ing that run for another time now my com- petitions leading up to WEG put me to the top the FEI World Rankings and Standings lists. This is very cool and a great accom- plishment.”
