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.
