For the Flat, Mady Fithian got the ball rolling for TCU with an 88 on Andrew, but it ended in a tie with Yowan. Veteran duo Carley Barnett and Jayme Omand earned their points for the Frogs, but Flat ended in an overall tie against the Mustangs, 2-2. Omand's score of 90 was the high-score of the day, earning her an MOP.
In Western, TCU won in Reining with a score of 3-2 thanks to Adrianna Adams, Elena Hurd and Carly Lombard. Lombard's score of 70 on Juice edged out SMU's Madison Steed, while Hurd's 70 topped Livie Pakula's 63.5 on Tinsel. Adams' ride on Stewie came after SMU requested a re-ride after Keagan Snively rode Moe. Adams scored a 71.5 on Stewie, topping Snively's re-ride score of 65.5, earning herself her second MOP accolade in her young collegiate career.
The Frogs tied the Mustangs in Western overall, 5-5. In Horsemanship, Marah Huston started off the Frogs with her ride on Wayne, but the Frogs requested a re-ride and were granted one on Jackie, the alternate. TCU was strong in Horsemanship but the scores were tight, two rides were decided by only half a point off and two others were an entire point away.
