It's an exciting weekend for dressage in Canada with not one but two CDI competitions scheduled: one in Bromont, QC, and one in Calgary, AB. These events mark the final opportunity for declared riders to earn qualifying scores for the 2023 Pan American Games, running October 20 - November 5 in Santiago, Chile.
While Equestrian Canada has released a list (not in ranked order) of the top 5 combinations in each of the Small Tour and Grand Prix divisions, nobody's spot on the team is a certainty. Results from the Calgary and Bromont CDIs may well have a significant effect on the standings. As well, the qualification process outlined by Equestrian Canada leaves wiggle room for the national federation to consider other factors in addition to qualifying scores when selecting team members.
Here is the current top 5 from each division, not in order of rankings:

Good luck to everyone competing this weekend. I'll do my best to post results on Instagram and Facebook!
