Bermuda riders claim honours in FEI Jumping World Challenge

Impressive display: Kayla Bardgett and Causing Chaos who won the category A division of the FEI Jumping World Challenge. As a result she has qualified for the 2021 FEI Jumping Finals in Honduras

Bermuda’s equestrians claimed a number of individual and team honours competing in the FEI Jumping World Challenge.

The event provided an opportunity for local riders to compete against other countries without having to travel overseas. Each competing country hosted its own event, and the results were then collated.

The Challenge provides individual regional and team results as well as overall individual and team world ranking results.

In addition, the top two riders of the ten regional zones are invited to compete in FEI Jumping World Finals, which has been tentatively scheduled to be held this year in Honduras.

Despite the challenges faced in 2020, the Bermuda Equestrian Federation was able to host the Challenge last year with local riders rising to the occasion.

In the regional zone 10 ranking, Bermuda claimed first place in three jumping categories with Kayla Bardgett and Causing Chaos winning the category A (1.20 to 1.30m) while Philip Correia won both the category B (1.10 to 1.20m) and category C (1.00 to 1.10m) on board Junior Cardento and Bon Voyage respectively.

In addition, the Bermuda Team, comprising Bardgett, riding Causing Chaos, Correia, on board Junior Cardento and McKenzie James riding Worth the Wait, claimed top spot in the regional team division.

Meanwhile, in the FEI Jumping World overall ranking, Bermuda’s riders impressed further with their final standings.

In category A, Bardgett and Causing Chaos placed fifth out of 47 competitors, while Correia, finished third out of 65 competitors in category B riding Junior Cardento and second out of 110 competitors in category C on board Bon Voyage. In the world team rankings, the Bermuda team placed second overall out of ten teams.

As a result of her impressive results competing for the first time in the category A division, Bardgett has also qualified for the 2021 FEI Jumping Finals in Honduras.
