Rosie Smith visits Ardeo Sport Horses

Rosie Smith visited Ardeo Sport Horses for a couple of weeks this spring all the way from Utah! Ardeo Nimbus was sold to Rosie in Utah last August. Hear all about her visit below.


My name is Rosie Smith and I am an American from Utah. I purchased a lovely young horse named Ardeo Nimbus from Mel and Neil last August and decided to keep him with them in training while I finished college over the winter. I visited Ireland this spring for a few weeks to compete my new horse with the Ardeo team. We completed two Stepping Stones to Success young event horse shows at Wexford Equestrian Centre and I couldn’t be happier with him! He took me around in style, despite our first show being the day after I arrived! It was such an amazing experience and I was so pleased with Nimbus and all the hard work Mel put in to his training. Everyone was so incredibly welcoming to me and I felt right at home. I took away so many new skills (including how to deal with the crazy Irish weather)!

It was so valuable for me to be able to see how a high end sales and training barn runs and how well all their horses are cared for. I can’t recommend Ardeo Sport Horses enough, whether its for sales or training, Neil and Mel are real professionals and truly genuine and kind people.
