directly to 6, 9a, 10, 8 and a sit ing trot back to the line. Iwasaki, who has been in the hot seat several times in her short but successful riding career, executed the tests fl aw- lessly, set ing the standard and ultimately moving her up three spots to fi nish third. Klinsmann rode the work-off without a


major fault, maintaining her fi ſt h place spot. Fresh off a win in the PCHA 14-under Horsemanship Medal. Under pressure as the fi nal rider, Crosbie remained consistent as she had throughout the class. “It’s really surreal,” Crosbie

With her cumulative 217.5 score going into the jumping phase, she had 16-point lead, which helped her maintain a top position.
