Smarty Burns is a 6 yr old, 16.1h son of Smart Strike. He is a total character and oddball that adores love and attention, according to the New Vocations trainers that worked with him.
He has been started under saddle but he has had very little education thus far. Smarty is very lazy and does best when ridden with a crop for encouragement. He is best suited for a confident intermediate rider who can put him to task or an advanced rider. He is suitable for jumping careers to around 3’6″ and all flat-work careers.
Sound and UTD on everything. Currently shod in front. Smarty was retired from racing due to a right front sagital slab knee fracture that was repaired with a single screw at Rood and Riddle in March 2014. He was fully rehabbed prior to arriving to New Vocations and has a great prognosis.
