The final phase of the 2018 FEI World Jumping Challenge (FEI WJC) will take place on Saturday, March 31st at the National Equestrian Federation, Vesey Street, Devonshire starting at 10.15 a.m.
The FEI WJC is unique in that it provides Bermuda riders with an opportunity to compete against other countries without the need to travel overseas. Competitors from 10 different geographical zones compete over identical jumping courses designed, this year, by Jaime Morillo of Ecuador.
In addition to a Regional Team ranking, the competition provides for an Individual ranking per Country, per Region and for the World for all 3 jumping height categories (Cat. A 1.20 – 1.30m Cat. B 1.10 – 1.20m and Cat C. 1.00 – 1.10m). Although three separate competition events are held, only the results of the best two competitions per category will count towards the final rankings.
FEI Judge Wendy Chapot Nunn of the USA and FEI Judge Judy Hagen of Bermuda will judge this weekend’s event.
This event promises to be exciting and spectators are encouraged to support and cheer our local riders as they compete against riders from around the globe. There is no admission charge.
