Cody Rego claims champion honours at Tryon Spring Series
Cody Rego continued his impressive performances competing in the United States by earning champion honours at the 2021 Tryon Spring Series held at the Tryon International Equestrian Centre in North Carolina.
Held at the same venue as FEI World Equestrian Games in 2018, the Bermudian equestrian competed across two series on different horses.
In Series 1, Rego and mount Asgard, finished sixth in the Platinum Performance/USEF Talent Search and seventh in the WIHS Equitation Hunter Phase.
Building on that encouraging start to the event, he then went on to clinch an extremely commendable second in the ASPCA Maclay 3ft 6in and in doing so secured a place in the Maclay Regional Finals, to be held later this year.
In Series 2, this time riding Achtung Baby, Rego claimed a first and second-place finish in the Low Junior Jumper 1.20m, fifth in the Platinum Performance/USF Talent Search and an impressive second in the WIHS Equitation Jumper Phase.
As a result of his endeavours on board Achtung Baby, the pair were declared champions of the Low Junior Jumpers 1.20m Division.
The latest success came just six months after the 15-year-old was handed an incredible opportunity to become a working student at the prestigious North Run Equestrian Centre. Based out of Vermont and Florida, Rego works under the tutelage of renowned equestrians Missy Clark and her husband, John Breenan.
In the upcoming months Rego, competing under the North Run banner, will aim to build on his recent success at prestigious events including Upperville, Lake Placid, Great Lakes and the Hampton Classic.
