Bermuda crowned jumping champions
Bermuda were victorious in the team and individual categories at the Caribbean Equestrian Association’s Regional Jumping Challenge on Sunday.
In addition to retaining the team division title, Bermuda’s Kirista Rabain riding Just Pete and Kelsey Amos on Wiratoro were the overall individual winners in the .70m and 1.00m divisions, respectively.
Cody Rego, riding Happy Feet, narrowly missed the overall top spot for the .85m division by a mere .03 seconds. Also competing for Bermuda at the National Equestrian Centre were Tyler James, Ariane Willmott and Courtney Bromby.
The challenge provides competitors of all ages an opportunity to measure their skills against riders within the Caribbean. Riders compete in their own countries over two rounds of a predetermined jumping course at heights of .70m, .85m or 1.00m. The top two scores from each division form the country’s team. The show was rescheduled from Saturday to Sunday because of bad weather.
