On Sunday, 25 February 2018, 21 riders arrived bright and early at Cayman Riding School located on Hirst Road in Savannah to take part in a Clear Round Jumping Show.

With junior and senior riders competing together at five different heights ranging from 0.5m – 1.0m, the competition offered riders of various levels the opportunity to compete.

“Whilst competing is not our main focus at Cayman Riding School, we have an increasing number of riders wanting to participate in these shows,” said Tracey Surrey, owner and riding instructor of Cayman Riding School. “We had several children competing for the first time and numerous other riders moving up to the higher heights.”

All the riders rode extremely well, with many children riding local Cayman horses that have been rehabilitated and retrained at Cayman Riding School. “This offers the opportunity of jumping and competing to a much wider group of our young riders who would not normally be able to compete if they were dependent on importing their own jumping horse (to the island),” Surrey said.

The next CRS jumping show is scheduled for Saturday 10 March and will include a Horse and Hound Mini Majors Competition, which involves a dog and dog handler in a team with a horse and rider.

The dogs will have to negotiate a dog agility course and then pass over to the horse and rider combination who will go on to negotiate a show jumping course. The first segment will be judged by Heidi Rivera from Must Love Dogs and FEI Jump Judge Tanya Neville will do the show jumping aspect.

The team with the fewest number of faults in the fastest time will be the winners.

Spectators are welcome and if anybody is interested in participating with their dog please email Tracey Surrey at
