Good morning from Bromont! It’s a gorgeous day here in Quebec, with the sun shining on what is set to be a thrilling day of cross country. The U.S. World Equestrian Games team horses are running in their final outing before Tryon, with key Canadian horses also gunning for a slot on their squad.
There is no live stream, but I will be running live updates here on EN for CIC3* cross country, which starts at 8 a.m. EST. Keep refreshing this page for all the latest news. Click here for a fence-by-fence preview of Derek di Grazia’s CIC3* course. The optimum time is 6 minutes, 28 seconds. Less than 15 seconds separate the top 10 after show jumping.
