The first day of dressage competition is over, and recent media superstar Rafalca, with rider Jan Ebeling, was the only American horse to compete today. Ebeling put in a solid test and tactfully rode Ann Romney's mare to a very respectable 70.243%, putting them in 13th place.

Team Great Britain is dominating the dressage competition so far with riders in the first and second place spots. Carl Hester leads the way with an incredible 77.720%, with Laura Bechtolsheimer not far behind with a 76.839% after her first test.

Tomorrow the competition continues with US rider Tina Konyot leading the way with the first test, followed by individual competitor Adrienne Lyle and teammate Steffen Peters. Today's rides have set the bar high, and our remaining three riders will have to give it their all to stay in contention for a medal!
