Kelly Cruciotti excels at The Rocky Mountain Marshall & Sterling League Regional Finals

PARKER, COLORADO (September 11, 2008) The Rocky Mountain Marshall & Sterling League Regional Finals took the stage during the High Prairie Fall Preview Horse Show in Parker, Colorado and were highlighted by Kelly Cruciotti taking the blue in both the Marshall & Sterling Children's Medal and Children's Hunter divisions.

"I always love going to that horse show and competing in the Marshall & Sterling divisions," said the 11-year-old from Elizabeth, Colorado. "Winning two of the Marshall & Sterling classes was so much fun."

In the Children's Medal, Cruciotti outlasted 12 riders to secure the title. She trains under the watchful eye of Cindy Cruciotti and plans to attend the Capital Challenge in the upcoming weeks before taking a break for the winter.

During the Children's Hunter Finals, Cruciotti and her mount Q got the best of 10 combinations to secure another title, making the 2008 Rocky Mountain Marshall & Sterling League Regional Finals a wonderful outing for her.

"Horses are my life," said Kelly Cruciotti. "And I like it that way!"

Also excelling during the 2008 Rocky Mountain Marshall & Sterling League Regional Finals was Elizabeth Wilkins (Evergreen, Colorado), who captured the Central Equine Junior Medal.
