Friday dressage brought us a new leader going into the cross country phase.  Sadly, Jennie Brannigan and Cambalda withdrew before dressage leaving 45 horse and rider combinations heading to the start box tomorrow.  The top ten after dressage are as follows, videos from the USEF Network:

Today was full of beautiful rides, but watching Last Call and Allie Knowles today gave me goosebumps.  Their test was beautiful and the emotion afterwards was beautiful and deserves a little extra love!
