Judges Chrystine Tauber and Jimmy Torano called back 25 riders to ride off in the second round of this year's Pessoa/USEF Medal Finals. Fourteen obstacles (there are two combinations) make up the second course.
The first fence is the former fence 10 (narrow wooden coop) and has been expanded to a coop of standard length, and enhanced with a back rail to create an oxer. Riders canter five strides past the in-gate to fence 2, situated on rail. It is a post-and-rail-type vertical.
