Canada kicks ass in both dressage rings today at Bromont 2015 Bromont,Events

Could we be any happier?   CCI3* standings after dressage Canada’s Selena O’Hanlon and Foxwood High put in a personal best at the three-star level with a 46.7 which is four points less than their previous personal best of 50.7 at The Fork in 2014. This pair rerouted to Bromont after Rolex as they were eliminated after an out of character cross-country attempt. Obviously, they have been doing a little dressage work and with the Olympics next year, this dressage test must have selectors a bit giddy about the progression of this pair’s improving partnership. Foxwood High is a 12-year-old…

However, the weekend did progress rather successfully as the two placed 26th in a field of 114 combinations and were the second highest placed Canadian pair. But we all know what a great sport Waylon is as he did win the Sportsmanship Award and he gave us his blessing to show…
