Smokey (Fistful of Smoke) born in 1986, he retired to Ryerss Farm in September 2018. His first career was as an English show horse. He was a jumper and a winner for halter classes. After he was purchased by his second owner he became a pleasure horse. She says, “He may have liked to jump but he LOVED to trail ride!” They rode everywhere together; he was very brave, never refusing an obstacle or a log to jump. The other horses always looked to him as a leader to cross something first. He was also good with children who were learning to ride.
Smokey loves to be fussed over and scratched on his chest and neck. He is a sweet horse who will make many friends in his retirement years at Ryerss Farm.
