RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 3, 2016–The Olympic competition and warm-up arenas at the equestrian stadium in Deodoro, one of the major complexes of the first Games to be held in South America.

Most of the 60 dressage horses plus reserves are either on site or on their way–most shipped from Europe but the two Canadian individual horses left New York Wednesday night.

Veterinary inspection of the dressage horses is scheduled for next Monday with two days of Grand Prix starting next Wednesday and the Grand Prix Special on Friday to decide the team medals.

Individual medals will be decided by the Grand Prix Freestyle scheduled for Monday, Aug. 15.
