Storyteller and Mimi Gochman Lead Large Ponies on Day One of 2016 U.S. Pony Finals

Mimi Gochman and Storyteller

Mimi Gochman kicked off her fifth year at U.S. Pony Finals with a win aboard Fair Play Farm's Storyteller in the Large Pony Model and a third-place finish in the Large Pony Under Saddle, heading into day two of competition sitting in the lead with 521.8 points.

"I'm really excited and very happy," Gochman said, smiling. "Since I've done Pony Finals so many times, it makes me so happy to have success here. In the past few years I've gotten better at doing this, but modeling is hard and hacking can be very hard, so to win out of so many kids, I'm very proud of him."

"Lex," as the mare is called in the barn, is owned by Jessica Zandri, and Passarelli recently got the ride aboard the 8-year-old chestnut mare in the beginning of June. Despite this new partnership, Passarelli took the top prize in the model before heading back into the ring for the under saddle phase, where she triumphed yet again.
