Smirnov Toasts His First HOYS Success

Philip Spivey is no stranger to collecting the Champion’s spoils at Horse of the Year Show. In 2005, he won the Horse & Hound Foxhunter Championship with Romanov and this year he claimed the EquestrianClearance.Com Senior Newcomers title with Smirnov, the son of his previous Champion.

“He’s a home-bred horse, who was then sold to my groom, Charlotte Briggs,” said Philip. “He’s a lot like his father, who went on to become a successful international horse and is now being competed by Ireland’s Bertram Allen.”
