Riders from Cayman Riding School won most of the ribbons during the second leg of the Cayman Islands Equestrian Federation’s National Jump Series on Feb. 21.
The competition includes a series of four jumping shows in which riders from all over the island are invited to participate.
Points are awarded to the riders based on their final placings at each of the four shows and then accumulated to decide the overall Show Jumping Champions for the year.
There are six height categories, from 0.6 meters to 1.10m, so riders with a wide range of experience are encouraged to participate.
“The main emphasis is for our children [at the school] to have a lot of fun and learn to ride in the safest way possible,” said Tracey Surrey, riding instructor and owner of Cayman Riding School. “Competing is just for those children who want to head in that direction.” The school also offers trail rides, riding lessons and birthday parties, among other activities.
