Cayman’s equestrians shined this past weekend in leg 3 of the Cayman Island Equestrian Federation () which was held at the Equestrian Center, located on the Linford Pierson Highway. The consists of four different show jumping competitions held during the season, which begins in November and ends in June, culminating with a Champion and Reserve Champion being named in each category at the CIEF’s Annual Awards Dinner in June.

Mary Alberga, who is FEI Level 1 certified, judged the classes which took place over a challenging course designed by FEI Level 3 course designer, Heidi Mello of Bermuda, which featured several tight turns, requiring agility and precision from the horse and rider. The fastest jump off time of the day was 30.70 seconds, clocked by on her pony, Oscar, who won both the 0.6 meter and 0.7 meter classes for ponies. Freya Timms, riding Anything but Ordinary (aka Star), was also a double-winner in the horse classes at 0.6 meters and 0.7 meters. New to the CIEF’s National Jumping Series were Olivia Ziemniak and Eve van den Bol, who said the last time she had shown over fences was 36 years ago.
