Ziemniak double clears in two classes at second National Jumping Show

It was a Cayman Islands Jumping Series first Sunday 28th January as Olivia Ziemniak posted double clears in both the 60 and 70 centimeter courses riding ‘Amarilla’ at the second National Jumping Show of the Cayman Islands Equestrian Federation season.
