Fancy dress makes dressage fun

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

Unlike 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 the school.

“As it was our last show of the season we decided to add a slight twist to the day and competitors (and quite a few 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 Ms Surrey.

She added that their riders have shown so much improvement – they 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 programmes available to riders of all levels – but make it as much fun as possible.”

With numerous riders successfully completing 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.
