Second Place at Bromont Three Day CCI**

Andromaque "Missie" and I, 2nd place after the XC, did our best to put pressure on Kelli by jumping a beautiful clear round.  Kelli had two rails down in stadium. I was very please with Missie at her first CCI**. She has been amazing at every event and continues to develop into a world-class horse.

Kaitlynn did a wonderful job as the groom for her mother's [Jennifer] horse.

Second After Cross Country.

Missie and I had a terrific cross country round today at Bromont. She was awesome and double-clear. There were very few combinations that completed the course within the time allowed. We were at the third to the last fence and were on course to be well under a minute under. She was galloping extremely well. That gave me a chance to slow her gallop to keep us closer to the optimum time.

Cross Country Phase

Missie and I are going into the cross country phase in 7th place. I was pleased with her dressage test and thought she did a spectacular test.  The weather was not the best on dressage day, rain, but Missie didn't seem to mind. Kaitlynn Mosing is doing a great job as groom.

The Mosing's Equine Motorcoach continues to be a great way to travel to and live at the horse show. We are able to keep a close eye on Missie while still being able to take advantage of all of that time in between duties and rides to take care of ourselves.

The Bromont Olympic site, home of the Bromont Three Day Event, is the only Olympic equestrian venue still in active use and, is underwent a major facelift.

Bromont CCI**

Andromaque "Missie" and I have traveled to Bromont for the Three Day Event hosted in Canada. The pair will run in the CCI**.  Our dressage ride is at 10:12 a.m. this morning.

Kaitlynn Mosing is with  Missie and me as the groom, an important part of the team. She is taking care of her mother's, Jennifer, horse through all phases of the competition including preparation and post-phase care. Kaitlynn has been training with me for several years. She became a working student last summer when she moved to North Carolina to attend college full-time.

Missie is in great shape and has been advancing in her competitive career right on course since she arrive late last fall in the U.S.

Stay tuned and I'll be posting updates as the weekend progresses.
