Sophie Gratchner

Hi, my name is Sophie Gratchner and I’m the 2018 IQHYA reporter. My horse’s name is Good Mr Jiggs or “Pink”. We have only been a team for a few months now but I am very excited for our future together! My favorite class to show in is trail and horsemanship.

I am 16 years old and a sophomore at Tualatin High School. When I’m not driving to Lewiston to ride, I enjoy playing basketball, hanging out with my friends, shopping and exploring my beautiful state of Oregon. I started showing 4-H in 2nd grade and then two years later began showing AQHA. I am lucky enough to show with my older sister Katie and younger sister Emily. We got into showing because my mom showed 4-H as a kid and eventually had us start taking riding lessons. I am very excited to be this year’s reporter and be involved with IQHYA!
