WEG Show Jumping Open Thread: Sandra Auffarth Wins Individual Gold, Germany Takes Team Gold

We’ve reached the end of an intense and dramatic week for eventing, and now the grand finale is upon us. All of the remaining U.S. and Canadian horses have passed the jog, after some tense moments, and 60 horses will move forward to show jump in reverse order of standing. Optimum time is 93 seconds.

Follow along here for all of the action as it happens. Currently, one rail separates the top five, so don’t expect the finish of a crazy WEG to be anything but extraordinary.
