Smith, Sylvester Win at Re­becca Farm

Practical Horseman - - The Ride of Your Life -

Tamra Smith claimed the Ad­e­quan USEA Gold Cup CIC*** cham­pi­onship with Ju­dith McSwain’s Fleece­works Royal in late July at the Event at Re­becca Farm in Kal­ispell, Mon­tana. Smith and the 8-yearold mare won by a 12.7-point mar­gin on a fi­nal score of 55. Smith also placed sec­ond in the CCI** with Lu­cida, LLC’s Glock Pull­man. With a fi­nal score of 54.2 Erin Sylvester won her first CCI*** on Frank McEn­tee’s Paddy the Caddy. The vic­tory was par­tic­u­larly spe­cial be­cause it was Paddy’s first three-star event. “This West Coast com­mu­nity is a re­ally neat com­mu­nity. Ev­ery­one is so sup­port­ive of each other,” said Sylvester, who was coached by Smith. “Ev­ery­one has each other’s back and they want it to go well and be there for you. Tamie came through as my trainer and helped when I had some hairy mo­ments, and I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated that.”
