The second day of dressage at the 2017 PEDIGREE® Bromont CCI Three Day Event was lead by Jordan Linstedt of Redmond, Washington on her and Barbara Linstedt's 14-year-old Hanoverian gelding Revitavet Capato (Contendro x Annabelle) with a score of 43.20 in the CCI3*. Australia's Ryan Wood riding Powell (Pal) ended the day just behind Linstedt with a score of 43.80.
In describing how Linstedt and Capato came to Bromont after having to withdraw from Kentucky Three-Day Event before cross-country she said "because the horse was not feeling 110%", following up by saying "they rerouted to Jersey Fresh CIC3*, where Capato actually lost 3 shoes running around that track".

Wood when speaking of his beautiful dressage test and his mount, Powell, an 11-year-old Oldenburg gelding (Pablito x Dinaro) owned by Summit Sporthorses said "I was thrilled with him". Looking ahead to the cross-country course designed by Derek di Grazia on Saturday Wood said "Derek's done a great course as always. I look forward to getting Pal out there, I think it's going to be a great test for both of us."

The Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park, which hosted the equestrian events of the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games, has in recent years undergone massive upgrades and is considered one of the best in North America.
The PEDIGREE® Bromont CCI3* Three Day Event is proud to host The Todd Sandler Challenge in memory of an aspiring young event rider, Todd Sandler, who died tragically in a car accident while returning home from grooming and lending a helping hand to fellow Canadians at the 1999 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event.
The PEDIGREE® Bromont CCI Three Day Event is made possible in part through a contribution from the Government of Canada.

The FEI has published its Policy for Enhanced Competition Safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, aimed at assisting organizers and national federations with the safe resumption of international equestrian events in line with national and local restrictions.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) has approved additional modifications to the qualification period for the 2020 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds. The AEC is scheduled to take place August 25-30, 2020 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, and the USEA is doing everything possible to ensure a safe and successful Championship, while also ensuring fair opportunities for all.
This article will be updated to include statements as they are released from upcoming USEA recognized events regarding actions they are taking due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
This has been a difficult decision, but with the current pandemic situation at hand, we feel that this is the correct and ‘common sense’ direction to take. We are developing a plan to host a shorter, smaller, and more focused competition. We will be using state and local protocols to help guide us through this. Safety is paramount at Rebecca Farm, for both equine and human participants.
