In 2011, Major Kelly Dobert won the Area II Beginner Novice Championship as well as the USEA Beginner Novice Adult Rider and Beginner Novice Adult Amateur Rider year-end awards. She was nominated as a USEA Owner of the Month, and a portion of her interview was published in the November/December issue of Eventing USA. We could not fit all of her great stories in the magazine, so her interview in its entirety is available below. Enjoy!1. How did you begin riding and eventing? How did you find your horse, Austin Miller?
