Robin Stempel tests well to book place at Youth Championships

Impressive showing: Robin Stempel, on board Rossano Royal 2, secured commendable scores in three separate tests at the Dressage in the Sandhills event in Pinehurst, North Carolina

Robin Stempel took a step closer to realising her ambition of representing Bermuda at the North American Youth Championships this year after an impressive display at the Dressage in the Sandhills event in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

On board her gelding Rossano Royal 2, the Bermudian dressage rider took to the arena for the level three classified show to undertake tests under the officiating of S-level judges Sue Kolstad and Donna Richardson.

Stempel, who trains out of Friendship Field Farm in Dublin, New Hampshire, secured commendable scores in all tests, earning 67.721 points in the FEI Young Riders PSG team test, 66.029 in the individual test and a combined score of 69.125 per cent in the freestyle test.

Having previously achieved qualifying scores of 62 per cent in the team test and an average qualifying score of 64.7 per cent in the individual test last month in the Spring Fever Dressage Show at Stable View in Aiken, South Carolina, Stempel has secured the five requisite qualifying scores to be eligible for the Youth Championships, scheduled to be held in Michigan from August 9 to 15.

“The Bermuda Equestrian Federation extends hearty congratulations to Robin on her commendable achievements and wishes her the very best as she continues to train and compete to further prepare for the 2021 North American Youth Championships,” a BEF spokeswoman said.
