Riders dodge rain

A recent pair of dressage shows were a huge success.

The Cayman Islands Equestrian Federation hosted two Dressage Training shows last weekend. The first took place at the Cayman Riding School in Savannah. Despite the wet conditions hampering the terrain, all the horses performed their tests exceptionally well.

Amara Thompson on Rumour Has It finished with 77.50 per cent, Hannah Fowler riding Honeycomb recorded a 67.50 per cent result, Dane Muspratt on Ninja Shadow got 66.25 per cent. Rider Eva Muspratt, while on Max, received a 66.25 per cent and Jenna Boucher on Katrina had a 65.625 per cent result.

Rounding out the B level participants were Michelle Boucher on Sarah (64.375 per cent) and Chloe Fowler on Shirley Temple, who finished with a 61.25 per cent result.

The second show, at the Cayman Islands Equestrian Centre, was hampered due to the torrential rains and flooding. However, a handful of riders took part. The Elementary segment saw Charlotte Hinds score 74.594 per cent on Kartouche. In the Preliminary class, Anja Van Genderden rode Karma, scoring 68.695 per cent while Phoebe Serpell, on Me and My Shadow, scored 66.522 per cent.

The federation was also thrilled to welcome Rick Albertson back to Grand Cayman, who visited on vacation. Albertson is experienced in training young and old horses from training level to Grand Prix and is very involved in the competitive horse-racing world. Alberston took time out and judged the two shows.
