Goetzmann Gets It Done In The USEF Pony Medal Final

Aug. 14—Lexington, Ky.

Madison Goetzmann had just one word for the final day of USEF Pony Medal Finals: awesome. 

That sentiment summed up her win in the Equisport Insurance/USEF Pony Medal Final. Goetzmann grabbed the lead with a perfect first round aboard Denmark, then repeated her performance in Round 2. Judges Kip Rosenthal and Bill Ellis were so impressed they opted to pin the class without testing.

Watch Goetzmann’s first round here.

Curtis Captures Individual Pony Jumper Gold

Aug. 13—Lexington, Ky.

The USEF Pony Finals are nothing new to Julia Curtis—but the pony jumpers at Pony Finals are. The past two years, Curtis competed ponies in the hunter rings. But after acknowledging her need for speed, she partnered with The Waterboy a year ago for some jumper fun. Her third time at the national championship at the Kentucky Horse Park proved to be a gold charm as she jumped Saturday evening’s sole clean round to win the individual gold at the pony jumper championship.

For The Laughter Finishes On Top At Pony Finals

Lexington, Ky—Aug. 13

It’s pretty tough to follow up two consecutive titles at USEF Pony Finals. Pretty much all you can do is win again.  So that’s what Maddy Darst did with For The Laughter.

That Betsee Parker entry claimed the large pony championship the last two years. This time around she came into the over fences with a 22-point lead, but a bobble at the first fence meant she nearly lost the chance at a title.
