An unscripted glimpse at the Canadian Equestrian Team's athletes, supporters & fans before, during and after major games. #CanadaStrong

I’m a bit late in starting this Pan American blog – and there’s been much Canadian success already!

In broader terms, Canada has already amassed more Gold Medals in the first few days of these Games than the entire 2011 Guadalajara Games.

At the time of writing, Canada is at the top of the medal table for both Gold (38) and total (97).

And 2 of those medals are thanks to Canada’s Dressage Team! (Team Silver, and of course Chris von Martels’ individual Bronze).

I will make a separate post later devoted to the Dressage Team’s fantastic performance, but right now I’ll start off with the Eventers.

After holding their training camp just minutes away from the venue (at Jorge & Amanda Bernhard’s facility), the Eventers moved into Caledon Equestrian Park on July 15th.

The jog was held today (16th), and after a few tense moments for Colleen Loach and Qorry Blue Dโ€™Argouges (owned by WEG2014 & London2012 Team member Peter Barry), everyone passed the inspection.

Team Canada Stables – looking fancy!
