Clem Smith Showjumping


New Team Member

January 30, 2017

We would like to Introduce a new member to our Team
'Station Master' aka Stu

He is an 8yo Thoroughbred Gelding who Jessie is very happy to be campaigning.. Last season saw this super little horse crowned the 2016 Queensland Junior Country Champion and Runner Up State Junior Champion with his previous rider Jasmine Ritter.

Being one of the only Thoroughbreds on our Team we will be careful to keep him on a diet which is cool.

He is being feed the wonderful new Mitavite product 'Cool Crusada'.
Stu gets 2kg per feed plus chaff twice daily. Also some Performa 3 Oil once a day. All this and the lovely green grass around at the moment is ample to keep in top condition for showjumping and won't fizz him up.
