Madeleine finished in 8th with Maxima (owned by Malia Orr) in the Jr./YR Open Preliminary. Maddi found Max to be relaxed and settled in the dressage ring and lovely in the stadium jumping; however she experienced a jump refusal on the cross country course. Overall, Maddi was pleased with the outcome and and remarked "you can never be too aware out on the course. There is always something that catches you quicker than you think."
