Today, they showed how solid their partnership has become in the CCI***, earning the top score, 38.5, to take the lead heading into tomorrow’s cross-country.

The last time Jessica Schultz visited Fair Hill was in 2003 to watch the Pan American Games, so she was excited to get back, but this time, she brought Lock N’Load to compete in the CCI**.
