Shawn Casady had a lovely second round, just with a few rubs.
Katherine Strauss also had a nice trip, though she looked a hair under pace over the first few jumps.
Sophie Simpson, the daughter of grand prix riders Will and Nicole Simpson, had a few distances that were a tad snug, but was solid.
Hasbrouck Donovan really cut the turn to the vertical before the triple combination, and then had to accelerate in the four strides to the triple. She didn't quite get there, and had a refusal at the A element.
Sylvia DeToledo had a very nice round.
Gabrielle Bausano rode very accurately and had a nice trip.
Schaefer Raposa had an absolutely lovely Round 2, with nice flowing lines and subtle adjustments.
Michael Hughes turned in a lovely trip.
Meg O’Mara was a shade deep to one of the Swedish oxers and had a rub there, but was beautiful over the whole course.
Ashton Alexander had a round that would be hard to fault, very fluid and positive.
Taylor Schmidt had a very consistent round with no mistakes.
Victoria Colvin’s round was quite lovely, just with a few rubs.
Savannah Jenkins found a quiet distance to the first jump, then her horse kicked out at a lead change. She also had an awkward jump at one of the Swedish oxers.
Jacob Pope had a very solid round.
Lydia Ulrich also had a lovely go, though the short two strides from B to C of the triple got a bit snug for her.
Catherine Tyree as well turned in a very solid round.
Elizabeth Benson rode a beautiful trip, with a wonderfully flowing track.
Lauren Tyree got a bit deep to the triple bar, and then had the front rail of the last oxer down.
Lillie Keenan had a lovely trip. It's up to the judges now to see if there is further testing.
There is further testing! The judges want four riders to come back into the ring. Catherine Tyree, Jacob Pope, Elizabeth Benson and Lillie Keenan are coming back. They're to change horses, with no grooms or help in the ring. Catherine Tyree and Jacob Pope are switching horses and Elizabeth Benson and Lillie Keenan are switching. This should be interesting--Lillie's horse is enormous!
Elizabeth Benson had some trouble getting on Clearway; her girth wasn't tight enough at her first attempt, but she was all good the second try.
They're to ride the entire final course again.
Catherine Tyree is first, Jacob Pope second, then Elizabeth Benson and Lillie Keenan.
Catherine Tyree found a bit of a snug distance to the narrow wall, but seemed to get an excellent sense of Jacob's horse's stride right away and turned in a solid round.
Jacob Pope gave Catherine's horse an absolutely lovely ride, very flowing on a horse with an enormous stride.
Elizabeth Benson didn't get Clearway quite straight to the narrow wall, and he almost ran out, jumping just the edge it. The rest of her round was quite nice. The judges ruled her problem at the wall as a refusal, and ruled her off course because she had continued on to the next jump.
Lillie Keenan got a bit tight to one Swedish oxer and had the front rail down, but was good everywhere else.

1. Jacob Pope

3. Catherine Tyree
4. Elizabeth Benson
5. Meg O'Mara
