The three competitions that comprise the FEI Jumping World Challenge will be held at the National Equestrian Centre, Vesey Street, Devonshire, on Saturday, then on Saturday, March 7 and Sunday, March 29.

FEI Level 2 Judge Judy Hagen, of Bermuda, will judge Competitions 1 and 2 and FEI Level 4 Judge Kim Morrison, of Canada, together with FEI Level 2 Judge Hagen will adjudicate competition 3.

The Challenge provides local jumper riders with an opportunity to compete in an international setting without having the expense and logistical challenges of travelling overseas.

Riders from ten different geographical zones compete over the same jumping courses designed by an FEI appointed course designer. This year's designer is FEI Level 3 Course Designer Christoph Johnen, of Germany.
