It was a picture-perfect day of dressage at the MARS EQUESTRIAN Bromont CCI Three-Day Event at the Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park in the rolling hills of Bromont, Quebec.

Buck Davidson (USA) riding Carlevo, a 12-year-old bay Holsteiner gelding (Caresino x Ramatuelle) owned by Carlevo LLC, took the lead in the CCI4*-L, the highest level of the weekend, with a penalty score of 27.90 following the end of dressage.

Speaking about the ride on Carlevo today, Davidson said, "He is very, very consistent. He feels great. I am really happy with both horses."

Davidson has recently come back from a fall at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event where he broke his collarbone for the fourth time. Speaking about his injury, Buck said, "Collarbones are funny, all of a sudden they just feel better."

Colleen Rutledge (USA) riding her own Covert Rights, a 13-year-old bay Thoroughbred cross gelding (BFF Incognito x Let's Get it Right) rounded out the final day of dressage, finishing the CCI3*-S in first on a score of 27.60. Rutledge was “incredibly please about his dressage today” when asked about the ride on Covert Rights.

Looking ahead to cross-country day tomorrow, Rutledge thought, “It’s a good course. It’s got a lot of questions. It’s a Derek course,” speaking of Derek di Grazia, course designer for Bromont CCI, Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event, and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics course, among others.

Saturday's exciting cross-country begins with the highest level, the CCI4*-L, at 8:30 a.m. and the action does not even slow down until after the last horse and rider combination in the CCI3*-S at about 5:00 p.m.

Entrance to the event is free for spectators and show jumping on Sunday will be live streamed through our Facebook page.

Ride times results are available at BromontCCI.com.

The Bromont CCI Three-Day Event is made possible in part through a contribution from the Government of Canada. The Bromont organizing committee also wishes to thank the Gouvernement du Québec, Ministère de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement Supérieur, and the City of Bromont for their support of this year’s event.

The Scoop on Oral Joint Supplements

“We need to back up and look at the gut,” said Dr. Maureen Kelleher before diving into an explanation of the many different oral joint supplements on the market. “Digestion begins in the mouth. Salivary secretion starts to break things down as the horse chews things up and then swallows, and it ends up in the stomach. We’ve got more digestion occurring in the stomach and the small intestine, and absorption starts to occur in the small intestine and continues in the large intestine.”
