No Boundaries Syndication

Dear Supporters and Friends,

No Boundaries’ very successful debut at the Advanced Level Pine Top Horse Trials last weekend leads me to make a very exciting announcement.  I have decided to offer a small number of syndicated ownership shares in “Bucky” to friends and supporters who would then join us on our road to compete at Rolex Kentucky 2012.
Bucky is a ten year old Trakhener Thoroughbred gelding who over the past three years has built an impressive event record.  A top ten finish at the 2010 Fair Hill CCI** followed by his sixth placed first Advanced start at Pine Top boades well for our coming spring campaign.  I will plan to compete Bucky at The Fork CIC*** in April to qualify for his first CCI*** at Jersey Fresh in May.

Currently Bucky and I are qualified to represent the US Team in the Pan-American Games in October 2011.  With the completion of at least one CCI*** this year, we will also be qualified to compete at the Rolex Kentucky CCI**** in 2012 and in contention for the US short list for the Olympic Games in London 2012.  This will be an important and exciting year for Bucky and I, and I am thrilled to be able to offer you the opportunity to share this journey with us.
Along with the excitement of moving towards these goals comes increasing expenses.  The maintenance required to enable Bucky and I to compete at an International level while continuing to develop and manage the program at Lily Bridge eventing is vast.  Hence, I am offering ten shares of ownership in No Boundaries at a cost of $5,000 per share.  The cost of maintaining and competing Bucky would be diffused among the owners in the form of an annual fee of $2,000 that will include any and all expenses.  This fee is tax deductable through the American Horse Trials Foundation.

Partaking in a syndication such as this can be thrilling as well as educational for all participants.  Owners and students are welcome and encouraged to spectate, help out at events and attend training sessions.  Many of you have eager young riders whose own eventing experiences would be greatly enriched by the opportunity to not only witness the hard work and training necessary to campaign a horse at this level, but also to experience the excitement of competing at the FEI level through Bucky.  

In an effort to give back to the generous participants in Bucky’s syndicate, I would like to provide a monthly free private lesson to each owner.  
Embarking on this journey with Bucky is a very exciting time in my life.  Having a loyal and supportive group of owners to share this experience with will make it all the more memorable.  If you have interest in partaking in this experience with Bucky and I, we will be thrilled to have you on our team!
For interest and questions regarding this syndication please contact me by email at, or by telephone at 617-529-7205.
