OTTAWA, Ontario, May 19, 2019–Jill Irving on Arthur won the CDI3* Grand Prix Special Sunday to complete qualifying on two horses for the Pan American Games at the end of July. Belinda Trussell on Carlucci wins the Intermediate 1 Freestyle.

Jill, who rides as an adult amateur, and the 14-year-old Dutch gelding scored 70.191% for the win, two days after posting a personal best Grand Prix score.

Jill is already at the top of Big Tour standings for the Canadian team on Degas, the horse she competed on her nation’s team at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon last fall.

A requirement of qualifying for the mixed Big Tour and Small Tour team of four horses and riders–one must be Grand Prix to earn one of two starting places available at the Lima, Peru Pan Ams for next year’s Tokyo Olympics–is results from one CDI after April 1. Jill fulfilled that on Degas at Tryon in mid-April and now at Ottawa with Arthur.

Naima Moreira-Laliberté on Statesman was second on 69.979% and Rachel Strickland of the the United States third on Errolympic Ctwo on 67.128%.

Belinda Trussell and Carlucci won the Intermediate 1 Freestyle on a personal best score of 75.542%, a day after winning the Intermediate 1 in a bid by the two-time Olympian to be on the team for Lima.

Tina Irwin on Laurencio placed second on 75.417% with Ariana Chia on Fiderflame third on 70.708%.

Canada has not announced the makeup of its Pan Am team.
