(CNS Local Life): The fourth and final leg of the Cayman Riding School (CRS) Combined Training League took place Sunday, 11 June under perfect weather conditions for both competitors and spectators. Unlike other most other equestrian competitions where horse and rider attempt just one discipline – the Combined Training Shows comprises dressage and a round of show jumping.

“Whilst this proves considerably more challenging, it does make for a more experienced and competent rider,” Tracey Surrey, CRS owner and riding instructor, said in a press release.

Since this was the school’s last show of the season, participants were encouraged to wear fancy dress.

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

CRS offers programmes for riders of all levels, she explained.

Noting that numerous riders completed both the dressage and show jumping section at a significantly more difficult level than previously attempted, Surrey called the show “an outstanding success and a reflection of all the hard work and training from the riders.”
