Brannigan skipped around David O'Connor's cross-country track on her 7-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding. Following Brannigan's lead, Area VI widened their lead in the team portion of the competition. With a two-day score of 154.4, the California team of Brannigan, Tiana Coudray and Ringwood Magister, David Koss and Candy lead the combined team of Areas I,IV&V who have a two-day total of 175.5.
