The order of finish from day-to-day at the World Equestrian Games Selection Trials changes about as quickly as the weather has through the three trials, yet one thing remains the same…Margie Engle continues to shine. Currently Engle and Lauren Hough are tied for first place with five total faults while Engle is also a close second place with nine total faults on her second mount, Hidden Creek’s Wapino. Engle took home top prize money again today, having the fastest no-fault round on her second mount, Wapino, at 79.94 seconds.

Hough, Engle and Garson Top Leaderboard after Trial #1 at the World Equestrian Games Selection Trials in Wellington, FL

The distance of ground in the vast Internationale Arena in Wellington and the tight time for the challenging Leopoldo Palacios-designed course proved mighty expensive indeed to most riders. None went clear in the time allowed.
