The second round for dressage is scheduled for the Thursday (11th) and on the Friday the medals will be handed out for the team Grand Prix. Saturday is a rest day for riders and horses alike and competition will resume on Sunday 14th August with the first round of qualifying for the team show jumping event, which also counts for the individual standings.
