Bonjour from Quebec! It is an absolutely stunning day here at the Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park, and we’re looking forward to a great competition at the 2017 Pedigree Bromont CCI Three-Day Event.
It was an uneventful hour-and-a-half during the first horse inspection this afternoon. The CCI* is by far the largest of the divisions here this weekend and only one horse, Matt Kidney’s Fuzion, was held but passed on reinspection. Genevieve Faith with Burned You Too and Colin Gaffney with Timaru did not present.
In the CCI2*, Allison Springer was asked to jog Fernhill Casano a second time, but they were not held and were accepted after their second pass down the jog strip.
All other horses presented in the CCI*, CCI2* and CCI3* were accepted by the ground juries. A total of 87 CCI horses will move forward to dressage. There will be no CIC3* division this year, but there is a CIC2* division running.
Dressage gets under way at 9:00 a.m. Thursday morning and we’ll have two days of dressage before all divisions run cross country on Saturday. See the complete schedule here.
Le Chinch has arrived and is already enjoying his time at Bromont. Be sure to follow his adventures on Instagram throughout the week.
