Riding on her horse Valerius, she scored 74.875% to beat Belgium’s Michele George and Netherlands’ Frank Hosmar.
The medal win was one of three golds in 15 minutes for Great Britain.
Dressage is a routine of moves on horseback set in time to music, all chosen by the rider.
Sophie suffers from Amniotic Band Syndrome. Her condition affects her feet, ankles and hands, and has resulted in the loss of a few of her fingers.
She won team gold and two individual silver medals in the 2012 Paralympics.
Her achievements were honoured on her return with a gold postbox on Exchequergate.
