On Saturday, competitors rode in reverse order of standings. Rosia and Clearano Z earned a 81.90 from judges Jimmy Torano and Steve Wall to take the lead. Her final overall score was 383.80 however two other riders sat close to her score forcing additional testing. Nicole Dorwart (PA) had a 383.00 and Texie Loyd (FL) had a 381.90.
