Day three of the Spruce Meadows 'National' CSI5* presented by Rolex brought 86 competitors to the International Ring for the Encana Cup. With so much international talent in the field, FEI course designer Peter Grant (CAN) had his work cut out for him.

Seventeen horse/rider combinations, representing ten countries posted clear rounds and stepped back into the International Ring for the jump-off. You had to be clear and very fast to make it into a ribbon placing making the competition fierce. Riders made good use of the new video board recently installed in the International warm up ring which allowed them to watch, study and learn as riders ahead of them stepped up to take on the jump-off.

Eduardo Menezes (BRA) was lucky to have a late draw in the order of go for round one and was the second last rider to step into the ring for the jump-off. Menezes indicated that the competition schedule for Carushka 2 heavily revolved around competing at Spruce Meadows.

Menezes now plans to enter Carushka 2 (Caspar x Continue) in the ATCO Cavalry Charge on Sunday which is a Table C competition and the mare's speed will be nothing but advantageous. "It was tough, but at the same time fair," Menezes said after his win.
