Placing second at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, Allison Springer ’97, of Upperville, Va., was awarded the Pinnacle Cup by the United States Equestrian Team (USET) Foundation Sunday, April 29. The highest placed U.S. pair, Springer and her 13-year-old Irish Sport Horse, Arthur, took the lead in the dressage phase of the competition. Her impressive finish in the event, which also comprised cross-country and show jumping events, marks a significant step toward representing the U.S. in the 2012 London Olympics.
