Show jumping proved massively influential today, with only three clear rounds out of 34 horses.  Bill Levett and Shannondale Titan had a superb weekend, jumping double clear to win easily on their dressage score of 42.6.  Nicolas Touzaint and Lesbos finished second (one rail down), with Arnaud Boiteau and Quoriano ‘ENE HN’ in third (his clear round moved him up from 10th).

All three US pairs had two fences down; disappointing, but pretty much par for the course today.  Even with the added 8 penalties, Will Faudree and Andromaque finished *5th, and Marilyn Little and RF Smoke on the Water finished 8th.  Two US riders in the top 10?  An excellent result for the new regime.  Hannah Sue Burnett and Harbour Pilot also completed in 26th place.
