The Bermuda Equestrian Federation advises that the Bermuda Round of the 2017 Caribbean Equestrian Association (CEA) Regional Jumping Competition was going to be held at the National Equestrian Center this Saturday, November 25th commencing at 8.30am.
But today the organizers have announced, as a consequence of the predicted inclement weather for Saturday November 25th (rain, moderate to strong winds & risk of thunder), the Show Organizers have postponed the 2017 CEA Regional Jumping Show & BEF Jumper Show to SUNDAY, 26th NOVEMBER.
The course will be open to walk at 9.30am, with the first class commencing promptly at 9.45am.
Bermuda is aiming for the same success that it achieved in the 2016 competition when Bermuda was team winner and also secured the top spot in each of the Three Height Divisions.
Bermuda has been a member of the CEA since 1999. Other member countries include Jamaica, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Haiti and Trinidad and Tobago.
One of the primary goals of the CEA is to encourage Equestrian activities within the region by the promotion of International and/or intra-Caribbean events.
The format for this year’s competition will see adults and children competing over 2 rounds of jumping at 3 different heights, the highest being 1 meter.
This competition is unique in that there is no distinction between age and gender. Adults and children, males and females; all have the opportunity to compete against each other. Most importantly this competition provides an opportunity for local riders to compete internationally without leaving Bermuda.
