Bermuda’s Robin Stempel achieved a qualifying score of 62 per cent in the FEI Team test and an average qualifying score of 64.7 per cent in the FEI Individual test when she competed in the Spring Fever Dressage Show at Stable View in Aiken, South Carolina, on the weekend.

Having now achieved two of the five requisite qualifying scores, she has until June 20 in which to obtain the remaining qualifying scores.

Thereafter, she will continue to compete at additional sanctioned dressage events in order to secure the remaining qualifying score in the FEI team test and FEI Individual test.
“The Bermuda Equestrian Federation congratulates Robin on her achievements to date, and wishes her every success as she seeks to secure the additional requisite qualifying scores for the North American Youth Championships,” the BEF said.
