Local equestrian qualifies for national contest.


Milton High School junior Tori Bentley recently qualified for the Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search finals to be held Oct. 5 - 7 at the United States Equestrian Team headquarters in Gladstone, N.J.

Her wins to qualify took place at the Elite Show series held at Wills Park this past month with her horse, Charizimo, a 10-year-old Holsteiner import from Germany.

A very demanding competition, the Talent Search Program attracts the nation's top young riders in head-to-head competition.

Bentley will attend Cambridge High School this fall. She is trained by Sunny Stevens of Stevehaven Stables and lives in Milton with her parents, Rob and Laura Bentley.
