The 2018 Caribbean Equestrian Association’s Regional Jumping Challenge [CEA RJC] came to very successful conclusion for Bermuda’s show jumping riders, as for the third year in a row they claimed the top spot against the Caribbean Teams.
Coming in second place was Team Barbados, followed by Jamaica, Cayman Islands and Trinidad. Unfortunately, Antigua had to withdraw from participating in this year’s competition.

The CEA RJC provides competitors of all ages an opportunity to measure their skills against riders within the Caribbean region and Bermuda.
Riders compete in their own countries over two rounds of a predetermined jumping course at heights of .70m, .85m or 1.00m. The top scores from each division form the country’s team.
