Many of us who’ve followed FEI-level driving for any number of years will, when hearing the name Lisa Stroud, still conjure up an image of a team of cute gray ponies.

But this time, Lisa’s competing for the U.S. with a team of big, flashy horses. Their dressage test was the very last one on this first day of dressage competition at the 2014 World Equestrian Games. And with a score of 56.10 penalty points, Lisa now stands in ninth place.

After this first day of dressage, Misdee now stands in thirteenth place, and Gavin’s in sixteenth.

More tomorrow, including both Boyd Exell and Chester Weber!!
