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.

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.

Ballou Bounces Back At Pony Finals

Aug. 12—Lexington, Ky.

Daisy Farish had an enviable decision to make heading into this year’s edition of USEF Pony Finals. Farish had two small ponies at the competition, Shine and Ballou, but the rules only permitted her to ride one. In the end, she chose Ballou, because she’s had so much experience with him, and that decision paid off with the division championship.
