CSIO5* Odlum Brown BC Open 2023

With this photo special, we look back at the 2023-edition of CSIO5* Odlum Brown BC Open at Thunderbird Show Park in Vancouver, Canada – all through the magical lense of Mackenzie Clark.

The Irish team – led by Chef d'Equipe Michael Blake – took their first Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ win of the season, and their second CSIO5*-title of the year, and as usual the competition brought everyone to the tip of their toes.
