“I really just can’t believe it,” said Pedone when asked how she felt. “I’ve only been riding the horse since December and I really felt like he was ready today.”
Pedone’s ride took her 15.718 seconds and set the pace for those to follow. Training horses since the age of 18, she proved tonight she’s got what it takes to be a champion.
“I have to tell Tiany Schuster thank you for choosing me to ride,” said Pedone. “Her patience as I took my time to get with him is greatly appreciated.”
