(CNS Local Life): The third leg of the Cayman Riding School (CRS) Combined Training League took place Saturday, 11 March, with the sunny day attracting a record number of competitors and spectators to the riding facility. Unlike most other equestrian competitions where horse and rider attempt just one discipline, the Combined Training Show comprises dressage and a round of jumping which, though more challenging, results in a more experienced and competent rider.
“Whilst we have a lot of riders who want to compete, that is not our main focus,” said Tracey Surrey, CRS owner and riding instructor.
“We have riders who just like to come along, learn the basics and ‘hang out’ with the animals. So long as they stay safe and have fun that is our main goal and we therefore feel it very important that we offer riding programmes available to riders of all levels.”
The next show is scheduled for Sunday, 14 May. Members of the public are welcome to attend and entrance to the event is free.
