Equestrians and volunteers came out to the Equestrian Center on Linford Pierson Highway, to compete in the third and final leg of the Cayman Islands Equestrian Federation’s National Jumping Series for the 2018 Season on 4 November.

Now that the Series is complete, Champions in each category will be named shortly.

Milly Serpell, who earlier this year was certified as an FEI Level 1 Show Jumping Judge, took on the judging duties.

Highlights of the day included double wins by Megan Swartz riding Fly with Me in both the 60cm and 70cm classes. The pair clocked the fastest jump off time of the day in the 60cm class, winning by almost 5 full seconds, a margin normally unheard of in show jumping. Gina Lomas also earned two blue ribbons, one in the 70cm Horse class and the other in the 90cm Horse class riding JR Booming Gun and Sunday’s Edition respectively.
