Caen, France—Sept. 3
There are many fences left to clear before the U.S. riders can rest, but midway through the second day of jumping at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, they’re in a striking position—fifth—on a score of 8.72. The team’s less than one rail behind the leaders, with Germany first (4.82) and the Netherlands second (4.83). But the scores are slightly misleading at this point as some teams, including the top two, haven't jumped three riders yet today.
