Caledon, Ontario—July 14
When Steffen Peters finished his Pan American Games freestyle, he pumped his fist in the air. He put his arms around Legolas 92’s neck and gave the gelding a big hug. Once dismounted, he raced around a turn, through part of the VIP area, and he landed squarely into the arms of his wife, Shannon Peters, before turning to hug his horse’s owner, Akiko Yamazaki. Once he heard he’d won the individual gold medal, he jumped in the air and cheered.
