Olympic gold medalist David O’Connor supported the Canadian athletes in an advisory role during the CCI 4* Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.
“We are grateful for David’s guidance at major events like Kentucky CCI 4*, and ahead of the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games this September,” said Dr. Rob Stevenson, Chair of the Equestrian Canada Eventing High Performance Advisory Group.
Speaking to the overall event and the Canadian performances, Dr. Stevenson said, “The Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event was a great weekend for the sport. We have a small and capable group of riders representing Canada.”
Dr. Stevenson continued, “We were so pleased to see Colleen Loach and Qorry Blue d’Argouges have such a great weekend. Lisa Marie Fergusson and Honor Me also had an amazing cross-country day on Saturday. The morale within the group is very positive, and we’ll build on that as we continue our preparations for Tryon.”
The Canadian Eventing Team will next have athletes competing at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials in Gloucestershire, GBR on May 3-6, 2018; the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event in Allentown, NJ on May 10-13, 2018; and the MARS Incorporated Bromont CCI Three-Day Event in Bromont, QC on June 7-10, 2018.
