The class begins Saturday afternoon at 3:00PM featuring some of the top riders on the WEF jumper show scene, performing the brand new USAE Third level test. At 4:30, the action switched from the dressage arena, to the main showjumping field, where dressage riders compete in a "Hit and Hurry" class. Olympian Anne Kursinksi and Danish/American Wellington resident, Bent Jensen will be defending their postion as the winning team for the past 3 years.
