Adria Smith: I am so pleased that the horses sired by THESE IRONS ARE HOT were a huge success. They showed not only versatility by winning in several different arenas but showed their dispositions and trainability by winning in youth, amateur and open divisions.
PH: How is the 2013 breeding season shaping up for These Irons Are Hot? We can imagine his babies’ successes have had an impact…

Adria Smith: I am thrilled for Trisha Yamber and THIS IS PERSONAL on their win in the HUS Masters Class. It was a great ride for the duo and THIS IS PERSONAL acted like a seasoned show horse in the pen.
