Bermuda’s Dressage season came to a satisfying conclusion with solid performances achieved at the 2018 Caribbean Equestrian Association Dressage Competition (CEA).
This particular competition is unique in that it enables riders from CEA membered countries to compete against each other countries without having to travel overseas.
An appointed judge travels to each of the competing Islands to judge at the officially organized CEA Dressage shows.
This year’s event is being judged by FEI 4* Judge Brenda Minors of Canada.
Bermuda riders competed in Dressage tests ranging from Training Level through to Intermediate 1.
Competitors are ranked both individually and by country team.
