Bermuda set for Caribbean tourney
Bermuda riders will be looking to make it two wins in the space of three months when they compete in the Caribbean Equestrian Association’s 2013 Mini Dressage Challenge this weekend.
The event, which starts Saturday at 9am at the National Equestrian Centre on Vesey Street in Devonshire, will see Bermuda being the second country to compete this year.
Other competing countries in the competitions include Jamaica, Cayman Islands, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.
Bermuda won the adult competition last year, and was second in the children’s competition.
This competition comes not long after the FEI’s (International Equestrian Federation) World Dressage Challenge competition at the end of February when Bermuda competed against their Caribbean compatriots and came out on top.
Dawn Fox, Michelle Ingham and Ashley Gibbs, team riders victorious in last year’s seniors CEA competition, will again be pitting their skills in competition this time around.
Junior team member last year Zoe Oleksak will also be riding in this year’s competition
The competition, organised by the FEI, will see judges travelling to each nation involved to grade their performances.
