Dressage, Show Jumping

24 October 2019 | Sports

“Elite riders from all over the country have entered and will battle out the Championships over 3 Qualifiers in each discipline. The Show Jumping Club Team event as well as the Dressage Musical Freestyles are certainly a highlight of the Tournament,” says event organiser, Silvia Kleyenstüber.

Musical Freestyle is a Dressage test where Dressage movements have to be ridden to music which must suit the horse’s pace and rhythm.

In the Show Jumping Club Team event, each team of four riders will battle it out against seven other Club Teams over 1 meter high show jumping fences.

“This event is over one round with a jump off against the clock if a minimum of 2 teams stay clear (no penalties) in the first round. Last year this event was very exciting as there were three teams who were in the run-off,” said Kleyenstüber.

The event is divided into the below categories:
Children Novice & Elementary Dressage
Junior & Adult Novice, Elementary, Elementary Medium & Medium Dressage
Children 80cm to 1.20m Show Jumping
Junior 1.00m to 1.20m Show Jumping
Adult 1.10m to 1.30m Show Jumping
Club Dressage Team Championships
Club Show Jumping Team Championships

Up for grabs are the Namibian Children Champions, Junior & Adult Champions and Reserve Champions as well as Namibian Dressage & Show Jumping Club Team Champions and Reserve Champions titles. Cash prizes of N$12 000 will also be distributed among the champions.

Spectators will definitely have their eyes on Jayd Bassi-Hansen and Jessica Kreiner who are both Junior 1,20 meter riders and are favourites to win. Other notable riders participating in the event are Michelle and Annette Künzle who are 1,30 meter and 1,20 meter competitors. Kate Alison will be competing with two horses in the 1,20 meter competition and she recently won the International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI) 1,20 meter finals.

A total of 67 horses and 44 riders have entered for the event of which 37 horses and rider will be competing for the Show Jumping Championship Title and 19 horses and riders will be competing for the Dressage Championship Title.

The event kicks off on Friday at 09:00 and is set to end on Sunday at 17:00 at the Reiterverein Swakopmund (RVS) arena. Entry for spectators is free and breakfast, lunch as well as coffee and cake will be available for the duration of the show. Dinners will also be available on Friday and Saturday at the RVS Clubhouse. The event is sponsored by the First National Bank of Namibia.
