Fifteen year old Jordanne Brown, T&T’s only entry at the Caribbean Equestrian Association’s Junior Jumping Competition in Jamaica, placed 2rd individually in the 16 year old and under level, just behind Jamaican rider, Hannah Deleon.
Jordanne had 4 faults for one knockdown in her first round, while jumping clear in the remaining three rounds. Hannah Deleon jumped clear in all of her four rounds.
This competition was held on 7th & 8th November at the Kingston Equestrian Center and Polo Grounds in Jamaica.
Trinidad and Tobago went into this regional competition in a tie for first place with Barbados, both countries having accumulated 8 points from the two previous legs.
Team T&T was the winner at the Barbadian leg of the competition with the home team coming second. At the Cayman Islands leg, this order was reversed with Barbados winning and T&T coming second.
The Jamaican leg was won by the home team, with the Cayman Islands coming second, and Barbados coming third. This gave Barbados 2 points towards the year end trophy, edging Trinidad, who received 1 point for their one entrant.
As a result, Barbados is the Champion Team for 2015 in the CEA Junior Jumping Competition. Trinidad & Tobago are the Reserve Champions.
