Lexington, Ky., Oct. 5
U.S. show jumping hopes were dashed somewhat today. At the end of the morning session of the first round of the Nations Cup of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, the U.S. team hadn’t put a clean round on the board and had dropped from first to fourth. Germany (9.80) has taken over the lead, with Canada (12.93) second and Brazil (13.49) in third. The U.S. team now has 14.69 faults to their name.
