Students Emily Hamel, Sara Gartland, and Christine Weir led off the weekend all competing at Preliminary. All three did well in the dressage, with Emily riding Grenadier Guard & Sara riding Always a Lady both placing 5th, and Christine riding Amadeus placing 8th. The three continued with good jumping performances. Emily added a little time on cross country and a rail in stadium to finish in 5th place. Sara jumped clean in both cross country and stadium but added a little more time to finish in 11th. Christine encountered a few minor difficulties on cross county, but jumped clean in stadium to finish in 12th.

On cross country, all three finished with clean jumping rounds and no time faults. Lord Robert and Havasu Canyon added clean stadium jumping rounds as well to finish in in 2nd and 4th places; Dante added a single rail to maintain his 2nd place standing.
