The CEA Dressage Challenge enables riders from member countries to compete against each other without having to travel overseas, as a selected judge heads to each of the competing islands. The competition was judged by Canadian Brenda Minor, an International Federation for Equestrian Four-Star judge. The other countries competing were Barbados, Cayman Islands and Trinidad and Tobago.
