Dressage Rider Robin Stempel is focusing on qualifying for the 2023 North American Junior Rider Championships.
Riding Rossano Royale 2, Bermuda’s Stempel enjoyed a very successful weekend at the Raleigh Spring Dressage Show held at the North Carolina Fairgrounds.
Recently, Stempel and Rossano Royale 2 competed in the FEI Young Riders – Individual 2021 Test and secured a very commendable solid score of 68.382%. Judging the test was Heidi Berry of Virginia.
Berry is a Senior Dressage Judge (“S”), having completed USEF’s highest level of certification in 2013. Berry received her FEI 3* license in 2018.
Stempel and Rossano returned to the dressage arena the following day, this time to ride the FEI Intermediare 1 – 2021 Test, with the pair achieving yet another fine performance, Judge Susan Mandas rewarded this team with a very commendable 68.678%.
Mandas is a USEF “S” Dressage Judge and an “R” DSHB Judge. Mandas also serves on the USDF Executive Board and USDF Sport Horse Committee.
With the academic demands of university, Stempel chose to focus on developing her dressage training skills and, as such, did not regularly compete during the 2021/2022 season.
Stempel’s results speak volumes, and she is to be commended on her dedicated training commitment. Stempel continues to train under the guidance of Tami Batts of Fellowship Farm, in North Carolina. Tami Batts earned her USDF bronze, silver and gold medals and is an “S” dressage judge.
For the foreseeable future, Stempel’s plan is to chart next season’s show schedule with the goal of qualifying for the 2023 North American Junior Young Rider Championship.
The Bermuda Equestrian Federation congratulate and wish Stempel the very best in her future endeavors.
