The big buzz in eventing circles, of course, is Rolex Kentucky,
the premier three-day event in North America. Team SmartPak
sponsored riders Jan Byyny, Jennie Brannigan and Boyd Martin
have been gearing up and getting ready to rock and roll, equestrian
triathlon-style, at the Kentucky Horse Park, April 25-28.
Allison Springer and the amazing Arthur will not be competing
at Rolex this year; however, Allison will be on hand to enjoy the
action and sign autographs at the SmartPak booth. Best of all,
Allison and Boyd will again team up as leaders of the extremely
Jennie Brannigan and
Cambalda will make their
four-star debut together: you

and team gold medals at
the 2008 NAYRC. In 2010
Jennie piloted Cambalda
to USEA Horse of the
Year honors. As a Team
SmartPak rider, Jennie

for herself and Cambalda
(aka Ping) gets SmartPaks
with SmartFlex IV Ultimate
Pellets, SmartHoof Ultra
Pellets and SUCCEED.

Bardos in 2010: fans of
this awesome duo will be
disappointed, because Nev
isn’t competing at Rolex

Pellets, SmartLytes Pellets,
SmartMuscle Stamina
and APF on SmartWafer.
