Sole Swiss representative Felix Vogg leads the way after Day 1.

 

 

Meanwhile, it's all smiles for :MEX Dani Moguel, who sits in 6th place following a nice PB in dressage. @mrv86 :)

So while Piggy is leading, a dog is walking around with his very own credentials. #bestweekendallyear

Typical Kentucky so far. Lesser names putting great runs, while the more famous names of team USA struggle. State of American eventing is pretty bad, and it's just getting worse.

:USA Boyd Martin, :NZL Tim Price, :USA Phillip Dutton went inside the time, but it's :GBR Oliver Townend who keeps command thanks to his dressage lead...

 

:MEX Dani Moguel had an unexpected stop right at the start, but continued on. She is riding with broken ribs actually, but nevertheless she gave a great interview after the ride: "I thought about pulling out after that early stop, but then I remembered how many fans came here to cheer Cecelia and me."

It’s all fun and games until the losers are sent to the glue factory. That’s how we handle things on the American team.

On the contrary, eventing is often a second career for the horses that don't make it in horse racing business (especially in the USA)... ;)

That would explain why the quality of our art class glue has gone down...
