The $100,000 FEI World Reining Masters is an annual competition to find the best individual Reiner in the world. The competition is based on qualifying the best Reiner from each National Federation for a final event which will alternate between the USA and Europe. The 2007 FEI World Reining Masters was scheduled to be held in Europe; however, since there were no applications, the NRHA has asked to host the Masters in the USA. The FEI has chosen Oklahoma City to host the 2007 FEI World Reining Masters which will be held during the 2007 NRHA Futurity and Adequan® North American Affiliate Championship Show November 22-December 1, 2007, at the Oklahoma State Fair Park in Oklahoma City, OK. The Masters competition will be held on Thursday, November 29, 2007.
