Daphne Rowse and her pony Macho Man take home First Place in the Small Pony Over Fences Division at USEF Pony Finals in Lexington KY. Their exceptional trip over fences helped Macho Man to an 11th place finish overall at this national competition which featured over 120 of the countries' top ponies. Ponies and their riders spend a week at the Kentucky Horse Park being judged in multiple events. Daphne lives and rides in Milton, GA at D&D Equestrian, and is trained by her mom Devon Rowse. Daphne also has the privilege of working with Clinician Anne Kenan who stresses the partnership of horse and rider to create quality performances. Macho Man was a christmas gift to Daphne when she was 6 years old and it has been a pleasure to watch them grow up and compete together. Daphne took Macho Man to her very first horse show at Wills Park, and the journey has continued since.
