The Plains, Va.—July 9

The Brook Ledge Great Meadow International CICO*** FEI Nations Cup turned out to be all about the underdogs. The riders from Great Britain finally scored the win on their third try, and Will Coleman earned a surprise victory on Off The Record, moving up from 11th after show jumping when Mike Etherington-Smith’s cross-country course whittled down the field thanks to the troublesome corners at fence 9.

Check out all of our coverage from the weekend and scroll down to see some of our favorite photos.
