Before the U.S. Equestrian Federation World Equestrian Games Selection Trials even began last week, McLain Ward had already secured a spot on the USEF World Equestrian Games Show Jumping Long List. But that couldn’t make him rest on his laurels.
Ward rode Rothchild to the top of the $40,000 USEF Selection Trial No. 3, today Mar. 3, boosting them to a tie for fourth in the USEF WEG Standings with 9 total faults. Richard Spooner and Cristallo now sit at the top of the standings after notching a single time fault today.
