From the 6th – 25th of April Kayla Gertenbach jetted off to Egypt for two CSI2* events in Cairo.

To jump on borrowed horses with only one day to try them out was a bit of a challenge, but an informative and great experience was still had.

There were riders invited from 18 countries, as well as all the local Egyptian riders.


Kayla drew a small german mare by the name of “Ice Cream” for the first competition and had just one unlucky pole down in each class.

For the second competition she acquired a second ride, a Chestnut mare named “Esta”.


Esta was placed 4th in the Medium tour Speed accumulator

Ice cream was placed 6th in the Medium tour Championship


Thank you to the Egyptian Equestrian Federation and everyone else involved for such an amazing opportunity!
