Is history poised to repeat itself for Team Canada at WEG? Consider this interesting tidbit courtesy of Trish Bosch: Canada’s top three have the identical team score (147.5) after dressage as they did four years ago when they won team silver in Lexington. Steph Rhodes-Bosch sat on 44.2, Selena O’Hanlon on 50.8 and Hawley Bennett on 52.5.

At the end of the second day of dressage here in Normandy, Hawley and Gin & Juice lead the way on 47.8, followed by Selena and Foxwood High on 49.5, and Jessica Phoenix and Pavarotti on 50.2 for a score of 147.5. All three riders have risen to the occasion to deliver personal best scores with their horses, giving them a lot of momentum to take forward to cross country tomorrow.

Leslie caught up with Hawley and Selena after their tests, so be sure to watch those interviews below. Regardless of what happens on cross country tomorrow, we’re very proud of the Canadians for rising to the occasion thus far, and we’re letting our #CamericanPride flag fly. Peter Barry and Kilrodan Abbott, sitting on 60.7 after dressage, are first out for the Canucks at 10:24 a.m. local time (4:24 a.m. EST). Go Canada!
