Dear Chris & Janet,
I’m sorry I haven’t been in touch. Sable and I have been very busy. Last year in Category B for the F.E.I competition, Sable and I won for Bermuda and later found out that we won for Category 10. This led to an overall 8th place in the WORLD against 321 competitors!!!!!! Last year Sable and I also won a Rising Star series in which the jumps were 3’6. We won $5,000.I was also awarded a Bermuda Government Junior Athlete Scholarship worth $5,400. This money was put toward my summer training and competing in Canada with Mac Cone. It was the best summer of my life.
This year Sable and I competed in the F.E.I Category A division and this time the jumps were 3’11. We trained everyday for 2 weeks to work up endurance for the higher and more technical courses. Sable cleared them with plenty of space below her! We were against Catrina (Adcock) Sims, Nick DeCosta, Lindsay Sousa, I was the youngest at 16 years old and Sable and WE WON!!!! Now we just have to see how we do against the rest of Category 10 and the World!
I would just like to thank-you so much for the best gift I have ever gotten. She is my baby, my guardian angel and my best friend. We are so close we would do anything for each other. Again thank- you and I will update you when we get the results for F.E.I A!!
Lots of Love,
Kelby and Sable!
