The U.S. team trotted up six horses (Upstage/Karen O’Connor, Task Force/Jan Byyny, Antigua/Will Faudree, Winsome Adante/Kim Severson, Poggio/Amy Tryon and Northern Spy/Heidi White) without a hiccup, all being immediately accepted.

U.S. chef d’equipe Mark Phillips saw his team pass the horse inspection around 2:30, then made it to the main arena to watch his wife, Sandy Phillips, ride her dressage test at 3:00 for Great Britain. Phillips’ daughter, reigning eventing European Champion Zara Phillips, also passed the horse inspection with Toytown for Great Britain.
