Of the 15 horses who left the start box in the CCI** division today, only 11 crossed the finish line. Of those, only 5 horses had no cross-country jumping penalties. And of those 5 only overnight leader Rowdie Adams and her long time partner No Money Down added nothing to their dressage score.

1st - Rowdie Adams & No Money Down (50.9)

Staying in 3rd place, is Jennifer Caras and Fernhill Stowaway. She added 11.6 time penalties, mostly due to ending up on the wrong side of the roping leaving the Head of the Lake.

After watching Mary Atkins Hunt & Nuance in the dressage yesterday (where he tolerated it beautifully for a 53.7 to sit in 6th), I just knew this horse would be a cross-country machine. They did not disappoint, adding 10.0 time penalties to move up to 4th place.
