Bermuda Show Jumpers Nov 2020

“The Caribbean Equestrian Federation [CEA] seeks to encourage equestrian sport within the Caribbean regions by the promotion of international and/or intra Caribbean events. Bermuda has been a proud member country of the CEA since 1999. Other Member Countries include Antigua, Jamaica, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Haiti as well as Trinidad & Tobago.

“The format of this competition provides an excellent opportunity for Bermuda equestrians to measure their equestrian jumping skills against riders from other Caribbean countries, without incurring the expense or logistics of having to travel overseas. Rather, participating riders compete in their own country, over an identical jumping course at heights of .70m, .85m or 1.00 m.

“The courses for this year’s competition were designed Bermuda’s own Heidi Shelley- Mello. Heidi is a FEI Level 3 Course Designer. This will mark the first occasion that a member of the Caribbean region has been invited to design the jumping courses for the CEA Regional Jumping Challenge. Congratulations are extended to Heidi Shelley-Mello on this achievement.

“Officiating the Bermuda round of this year’s Challenge will be Bermuda FEI Level One Jumper Judge. Pam Mahoney.

“Following the completion of the CEA Regional Jumping Challenge, the Bermuda Equestrian Federation will host a BEF Support Jumper competition that will include jumping heights up to and including 1.30m.”
