Terceira set to make World Games bow

Jill Terceira, the Bermuda show jumper, has qualified for her maiden World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France, next month.

The Bermuda Equestrian Federation received confirmation from the Federation Equestre Internationale, the sports's governing body, that Terceira had reached the qualifying standard to participate in the Games, from August 23 to September 7.

At a special qualifying competition held at the end of the Grand Prix events in Bonheiden, Belgium, last weekend, Terceira qualified on two horses: Lakvels, on which she incurred eight penalty points and Tamarino, on which she incurred four penalty points.

Terceira's performances have enabled her to obtain a certificate of capability as required by the FEI.

The course was built to maximum difficulty at a height of 1.60 metres as prescribed and approved by FEI. Terceira will have to decide whether to compete on Lakvels or Tamarino closer to the Games.

The Games are held every four years and are the World Championships of equestrian sports, involving other disciplines such as dressage, eventing, driving, vaulting, endurance riding and reining.
