  • “Our ambitions and goals are high, but we are dedicated to reach them, without our team of workers, owners, sponsors, supporters, family and friends, success would not be possible!”

  • “Donna’s attitude is always professional, not only with her dealings with the horses she produces and rides, but also in the way she deals with officials and her fellow competitors. I regard her ability as a rider and competitor with great respect.”

  • Thank you for the amazing job you did with Donny. 🙂. We are just so thrilled with him and how he has matured and so so sensible. The difference is just amazing, so thank you so much for your wonderful encouraging way with the young horses. We are rapt!!!

  • We became involved in eventing as a consequence of needing to find a meaningful activity for  my retiring racehorses, hence we met Donna Smith. Donna has ridden a number of my horses for the last six years. Donna is an outstanding rider and horsewoman with great skill, ability and experience but also great patience and tolerance which enables her to take very difficult horses and turn them into champion eventers. We are very proud to be part of Donna's team and I have been dubbed "Showtime Grandma" for looking after the troupe at events, providing meals, a warm place to rest and a small tipple at the end of the day.
    We will continue to support Donna and hopefully be with her as she gains more international recognition and titles as fitting for a rider of her class. I think Donna's win on my horse Cluny in the CCI1* at Kihikihi was outstanding in the circumstances, and I thank Donna so much for that.
