The Cayman Islands Equestrian Federation held its second dressage show of the season on Jan. 29 at the Equestrian Center in the morning and at Cayman Riding School in the afternoon.
Sandy Hotz, a USEF-S and FEI 4 dressage judge from Colorado, flew in to judge the show.
The highlights of the day included: the return of Jessica McTaggart-Giuzio and her CAC/Pan Am Games mount, Ray of Light, to the FEI Intermediate Level; the CIEF show debut of Amber McMillan who won at USEF C Test – Adults; and the score of 73.44 percent for Tracey Surrey on her horse, Dusty, at First Level Test 2, which was the highest score of the day, and possibly for the entire season.
The junior high point winner of the day was Abbey Swartz riding Blue Ridge Dream On at First Level Test 1.
The next dressage show to be held by the CIEF will be the Cayman leg of the Caribbean Equestrian Association’s Caribbean Dressage Challenge, where Cayman riders will compete against their counterparts in Barbados, Bermuda, Jamaica and Trinidad.
The show will take place on April 2 at approximately 7:45 a.m. at the Equestrian Center on the Linford Pierson Highway, and at approximately 2:30 p.m. at the Cayman Riding School on Hirst Road. Spectators are welcome and entry is free.
