Sisters Kaely and Lindsey Tomeu of Wellington, who ride with Sweet Oak Farm, will share history as the first sisters dually presented with Vita Flex Victory Pass Awards at the 2015 Winter Equestrian Festival.
Lindsey, who won last year’s NAL Finals at Harrisburg, Pa., riding Dogwood Hill LLC’s Bonapart, won the attention of Vita Flex at the 2015 Winter Equestrian Festival after the pair’s victory gallop ahead of 72 other entries for the $10,000 Adult Classic championship during the WEF Fidelity Investments CSI5*-W AA. The pair also secured a win in the Adult Jumpers.
“We’re working on making him mine,” said Lindsey of Bonapart.
Lindsey trains with Allison Sweetnam at Sweet Oak Farm. “Bonapart and I have been together for a year. Winning the classic has been our greatest accomplishment here so far.”
Kaely said the secret to sisterly success is in their Sweet Oak team.
“Great horses and a great team behind us — that’s a big part of it,” she said. “Mom rode when she was pregnant, so literally, I’ve been riding my whole life.”
