Shameless cheering for the Americans -- Becca Hart in 4th in the Grade II and Jonathan Wentz in 5th in Ib. Looks like Dale Dedrick had a disappointing placing, but otherwise a great start for Team USA against the very strong European teams. And, great job Lauren Barwick, in 3rd in Grade II for our neighbors to the north!
Good luck to everyone competing tomorrow!

For dressage fans frustrated at the coverage of the equestrian events at the Paralympics there will be some — albeit limited — airtime.
There will be some coverage of paradressage on Channel 4's main channnel – according to the schedule.
Tomorrow (Saturday 1 September) on C4 1pm-6.30pm there will be equestrian, alongside judo, cycling and basketball.
Monday (3 September) from 1pm-3.30pm basketball, equestrian, sitting volleyball
Tuesday (4 September) from 1pm-3.30pm with baseball.
A spokesman told H&H last week there would be “comprehensive equestrian coverage”.
“We are likely to give the equestrian a big push because they are medal hopefuls,” he added.
“Dressage will be a major feature of our morning and afternoon live programming. We will have an outside broadcast team at Greenwich Park throughout the Games to capture all the must-see moments.”
There are three live broadcast streams online — C4 Paralympics Extra 1, 2 and 3 — as well as the main terrestrial channel. They will feature “live, uninterrupted coverage from early morning to late evening” on Sky, Freesat and Virgin Media.
