Dressed up fun at final training league show

Olivia Kluyver competed successfully for the first time in the 0.8m section on her horse ‘Shirley Temple’

The fourth and final leg of the Cayman Riding School Combined Training League took place last Sunday, 11 June, with perfect weather making it an ideal day out for both competitors and spectators at the riding facility on Hirst Road in Savannah.

Unlike other most other Equestrian competitions where horse and rider attempt just one equestrian discipline – the Combined Training Shows at CRS is a combination of a Dressage Test followed by a round of Show Jumping.

“Whilst this proves considerably more challenging, it does make for a more experienced and competent rider,” said Tracey Surrey, owner and riding instructor at Cayman Riding School.

She said because it was the last show of the season, it was decided to add a slight twist to the day and competitors and spectators were encouraged to participate in “Fancy Dress”.

“Whilst we have a lot of riders who want to compete, that is not our main focus,” said Surrey.

“Our riders have shown so much improvement. We thought if riders were able to dress up it would make it even more fun and help calm some of the nerves for those competing for the first time or those riders attempting a higher level of competition. At CRS, we feel it very important that we offer riding programs available to riders of all levels, but make it as much fun as possible,” she added.

With numerous riders successfully completing both the dressage and show jumping section at a significantly more difficult level than previously attempted, the show was an outstanding success and a reflection of all the hard work and training from the riders.
