Today should be an exciting day of show jumping! Michael Jung is absolutely DOMINATING the competition — we probably could have just handed him the watch as he finished that dressage test — however, it is worth pointing out that we might have someone with West Coast roots on the podium.
Even though Maya Black took off for the East Coast in January of 2014, she still hails from the Pacific Northwest and has a significant cheering section on this side of the country. One other West Coast ex-pat, Matt Brown, is in striking distance of the top 10 and positioned to finish as the top Rolex Rookie.
