Two Rising Stars Stand Out During Wellington’s Winter Equestrian Festival

Two Rising Stars Stand Out During Wellington’s Winter Equestrian Festival

Every year, Wellington holds true to its name as the equestrian capital of the world captivating the biggest names in the international show jumping world for the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF). For twelve weeks, the 2014 season showed no signs of slowing down as it thrilled enthusiasts and riders on during all the matches.  This year, British show jumpers dominated the sport and even organizing CEO Mark Bellisimo took notice. He also jokingly remarked that next year’s festival should be called BEF to stand for the ‘British’ Equestrian Festival. Polly Serpell and Thea Millward, two show jumping stars on the rise from Cayman had the privilege of meeting the renowned British show jumper Ben  Maher as the festival draw to a close.

Along with other young riders from the Caribbean, Polly Serpell and Thea Millward came to Wellington to contend in the Second Annual FEI Group IV Caribbean Challenge. This three day challenge became a success through the efforts of the organizers namely: the US Equestrian Federation, WEF, and the FEI’s Group IV members. Several Caribbean countries participated in the event by sending two young riders each as representatives. Riders from North America, who also contended in the Challenge, lent horses to the visiting riders.

Following the warm up round, the Group IV Classic was the first event to be held. It proved to be an excellent round for Thea Millward as she was the highest placer among the Carribean riders finishing in 2nd place. Though Polly Serpell finished in 11th place during this round, she certainly stood out during the next event which was the Group IV Championship Competition. This event was held on the second day of the Challenge. Millard unfortunately had a refusal during this round and was eliminated. Serpell, finishing in 5th place, was the highest placer among the Carribean riders. She was also given the award of ‘Best Horse’ for Montego, the horse lent to her.

This was an invaluable advantage for Serpell as she prepares to compete at the Youth Olympic Games. The competition will be held in August 2014 and she will be contending against the best youth show jumpers in the international arena. Ever since Serpell was qualified for the Games in 2013 by the Cayman Islands Equestrian Federation (CIEF), she has been constantly competing in Florida.
