Avery Sutton, the daughter of Sheila and Trevor Sutton, MD, of West Hartford, recently won a prestigious horseback-riding competition.
An 8th grader at Kingswood Oxford
School, Sutton placed first in the children’s equitation division of the Connecticut
Hunter & Jumper Association, which included about 75 competitors and was based
on points accumulated from Dec. 1, 2012 through Nov. 30. She captured the lead
in the first month of the contest and never let it go.
Sutton has been riding since age 4 and
currently trains at Well-a-Way Farm in Simsbury.
