Dressage is a competitive equestrian sport, defined by the International Equestrian Federation as “the highest expression of horse training“, where “horse and rider are expected to perform from memory a series of predetermined movements.”
The TTEA competes annually in the International Equestrian Federation’s (FEI) World Dressage Challenge and the Caribbean Equestrian Association’s (CEA) Mini-Dressage Challenge.
The TTEA hosts several different show jumping events each year, including the CEA Junior Show Jumping Challenge which consists of four legs held throughout the Caribbean islands, the Super League Show Jumping Challenge, and beginning in 2010, the FEI World Jumping Challenge.
In 2009, the TTEA reintroduced Eventing as a competitive discipline for the riding community. Plans are in place to have the required elements of a cross-country course built over which the riders will acclimatize their horses during the year until a full course can be produced.
It is the long term goal of the TTEA to send an Eventing team to the Central American and Caribbean Games in 2014.
