Bermuda’s competitors achieved strong performances in the second competition of the FEI World Jumping Challenge at the National Equestrian Centre in Devonshire last weekend.

Philip Correia, riding his horse Emerson, had superb rounds with double clears and claimed first place in the category A division (1.30 — 1.40 metres).

Dale Rochester, riding the chestnut gelding Carolina Gold owned by Ann Lindroth, also rode impressive rounds but incurred one time fault in the first round and eight faults in the second.

In category B (1.10m — 1.20m) Casey Truran and his horse De Le Vega executed another outstanding performance going clear in both jumping rounds.

Leading the way in category C (1.00 — 1.10m) was Courtney Bromby, riding her horse Worth the Wait. They had solid clears in both jumping rounds with a time of 59.28sec in the timed second round. Close on her heels was Kayla Bardgett on Causing Chaos.

The pair also secured double clears but in a time of 61.76, earning them second place.

Recording double clear rounds and clocking a time of 63.42 was Philip Correia on his new mare, Hornelli, while Emma Stegmann, riding Let’s Play, also secured double clear rounds in a time of 71.26.

The third and final round of the FEI World Jumping Challenge will take place on Saturday, March 31 at the National Equestrian Centre.

It will be judged by Wendy Chapot Nunn, of the United States, and Judy Hagen, of Bermuda.
