The Games have begun at the Baji Koen Equestrian Park in Tokyo, as the dressage riders got their competition started yesterday with their qualification Grand Prix tests. Team USA’s Sabine Schut-Kery and Sanceo rode their test yesterday and finished second in their group, qualifying them for a spot in the Grand Prix Freestyle.

If you’re up early this morning, you’ll be able to catch the other two US riders today: Adirenne Lyle rides at 5:21 AM EDT and Steffen Peters rides at the more reasonable hour (in the Eastern time zone at least) of 8:42 AM EDT. Catch a detailed recap of the first day of dressage competition here!
