The first of the two FEI 1.45m competitions began at 8:00am on the International Ring with seventy-five horses ready to go at the Spruce Meadows 'North American'. The one round competition had riders and horses covering 485m of track and 11 obstacles in a time of 73 seconds. The riders with a clear round and the fastest time would take a trip to the winner's circle. The top twenty-five competitors of this competition qualify for a competition later this week.
