I've been following the scores for the Badminton Horse Trials since it started, and just noticed that Clark Montgomery, from the United States, and his mount Loughan Glen are in first place with a score of 33.3 in their dressage test. Paul Tapner and Kilronan are in second with a score of 36.0, Francis Whittington and Easy Target are in third with a score of 36.2, and Lucinda Fredericks and Flying Finish are in fourth with a score 39. In fifth place is Mark Todd on NZB Campino with a score of 40.5. Mark Todd was also riding Leonidas II, who is in ninth place with score of 41.8.
One rider who is also doing well is Sara Algotsson Ostholt, a Swede, who is tied for fifth place with Mark Todd. She was riding Reality 39, formerly called Mrs. Medicott, and has a score of 40.5. I think it's cool that a Swedish rider is in the top ten seeing as my mom is Swedish.
Just behind her is William Fox-Pitt and his mount Parklane Hawk. They scored 41.0 and are tied with Andrew Nicholson and his mount, Nereo. Andrew Nicholson's other mount, Quimbo, is in 19th with a score of 44.7. Another rider I've been following is Tiana Coudray, from the United States, and her mount, Ringwood Magister. They are in 14th place with a score of 43.7. Tiana Coudray is currently based in England.
Rebecca Howard, from Canada, is in currently in 34th place with her mount Riddle Master. They have a score of 48.7.
