(CNS Local Life): Cayman Riding School (CRS) held the first jumping show of the new competition season on Saturday, 4 November. As part of the affiliation with the British Pony Club and the ongoing training programme for those who want to compete, 27 riders negotiated jump courses ranging from 0.5m to 0.9m. “It is so encouraging to see our young ridings improving,” said Tracey Surrey, CRS owner and riding instructor.

“Many of our riders were competing for the first time with the more experienced riders competing over higher jumps than they had competed over before. When training the riders will jump much higher jumps; this helps build confidence and balance of the horse and rider which in turn keeps things safe and fun – which is our main priority at Cayman Riding School,” she said in a CRS press release.

Surrey added those riders who did not want to compete came along to support and cheer on the other riders “making it a great day out for all involved”.

Next up is the CRS Christmas show, which is a major event on the school’s calendar, and the public is invited to attend. This year so many riders are participating that the show will take place over two days, stated the press release.
