15.3hh 1991 Brown/Black QH Mare

Chex Smart Alex (AKA Smarty), What an absolute superstar this mare is. She has a correct balanced conformation, with the most beautiful ground covering effortless movement I have ever seen.

During her show career she amassed 18 Awards with over 600 points in a variety of  Youth, Amatuer and Open events, testament to her versatility and temperament..

She is also a proven producer of National, State & NPHA Champions. To date she has had 7 foals, 5 that have been shown successfully including Radical Rhythm who has 135pts and 3 awards to his name. 

Most recently, our very own 'TPL Smart Rendition', a multiple National, NPHA, State and Futurity Champion.

Smarty is now retired from the broodmare barn and will live out the rest of her life as a lady of leisure.
