GLADSTONE, N. J. — Oklahoma State freshman Ally Blais will be competing this Saturday and Sunday in the USEF Show Jumping East Coast Talent Search Finals. The events will take place at the USET Foundation complex. The competition will include four phases — flat will be phase one, phase two is gymnastics, phase three will be show jumping over grand prix style fences and phase four will be the final ride off for the top four riders in the competition.

From December to August, Blais earned enough points to qualify for the finals. In order to qualify, riders must earn 30 points at designated shows in order to make it to the finals. Riders accumulate points by placing first or second in the class. By winning the class, riders get ten points and second place earns the rider five points.
