Lexington, Ky.—Aug. 9
Sophie Gochman couldn’t contain her excitement.
Throughout her interview following her win the Marshall & Sterling/USEF Pony Medal, it was emanating from her, and she continually bounced on her heels as she grinned widely.
“I came in here thinking that it would be great to be in the top 10, because last year we were in the top 25,” said Gochman, 12. “So my goal was to be in the top 10. I never expected to win, and I did. And I was so excited. I’m so pumped!”
