Successful horse show marks the beginning of a new season
Equestrian Bahamas launched the first show of the 2019-2020 season with a successful two-day event last weekend at Mariposa Stables, Nassau, The Bahamas. The show was judged by United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) ‘R’-rated judge Doug Bruce of Delray Beach, FL.
Classes were held at all levels of ability. Some young riders were entering their very first competition. Many of the riders moved up at least one level since last season, and enjoyed testing their more advanced skills for the first time in the show ring. The show featured the return of amateur adult riders to horse showing.
The highlight of the show was the Bahamas Junior Qualifier class and Sara Gottberg’s sparkling ride aboard Linda D’Aguilar’s Laureanna CF, scoring an 87 to win.
The next competition on the Equestrian Bahamas calendar will be the Annual Camperdown Horse Show, to be held at Camperdown Equestrian Centre, on November 9, 2019. Admission is free. The public is welcomed to attend.
