When asked how they felt about winning, both Carly and Ricky expressed their excitement. "It is an honor and I feel very privileged to be chosen as one of the two winners. I am extremely happy for Ricky, he deserved it and I am very proud of the rest of my peers for riding as hard as they can and being the best horsemen they can as well." stated Carly. Ricky shared Carly's excitement "To be chosen from a group of riders of this quality is really an honor so I feel pretty fantastic."
