This cracking horse is by the TB stallion Dazzling Blaze and out of a Condios / Ricardo Z dam. Bought as a young 4yo, Smartie had plenty of time to mature as a 4 year old and a nasty foot abscess kept him off the competitive scene for most of the 2017 season.

Samrtie certainly made up for it in 2018, going from BE90 to placing at Novice level very smoothly. He gained good Novice results early in 2019 before stepping up to Intermediate level in the summer. Smartie has proved to be an absolute demon on the cross country and is quickly developing into one of those true cross country horses!¬†Alice took over Smartie’s reins towards the end of 2019 and despite the Covid restrictions, enjoyed some fun in 2020.¬†Kate was Smartie’s pilot in 2021, during Alice’s pregnancy. The pair had some great spins at Intermediate level before finishing on their dressage score to place at Blair Castle CCI-L2*! To round off the year, Smartie cruised around Bicton’s CCI-S3*, taking the cross country track easily in his stride.

Kate will campaign Smartie again this spring, with their sights on a CCI-L3*, before either upgrading to 4* later in the year or Alice getting back in the saddle.
