If you were competing at Rolex would you want to be one of the first riders out on course, or one of the last? The 2014 riders learned their fates today.

From Jenni Autry:
Rolex released draw numbers this morning, and Buck Davidson and Petite Flower drew the first spot to lead off on day one of dressage. The numbers go through 76, so we’ve lost a few entries from the record number of 82. And, of course, this list still isn’t final, as Boyd Martin’s status is still up in the air, Buck Davidson still has to pick which of his five entries he’ll ride, Peter Atkins is currently fundraising to get Henny to Badminton — not to mention that anything can happen between now and the last weekend in April. Will Faudree withdrew Pawlow from Badminton, as did Boyd with Otis Barbotiere and Shamwari 4, so that gives us a little clearer picture.
