"Tamra Smith (Murrieta, Calif.) and Mai Baum began their weekend with a beautiful performance in dressage to score 38.5. After an impressive trip around the cross-country track, the pair added nothing to their overnight score and began the day with a rail in hand. Having won in her last three outings with the 2006 German Sport Horse gelding owned by Alexandra Ahearn, Ellen Ahearn, and Eric Markell, the pressure of the lead did not affect Smith as she executed a bold and careful show jumping round, adding two time penalties to finish on 40.5. This was Smith's first CCI3* win and National Championship title.
"He was super. Normally, he's pretty spooky in the ring, and today, he wasn't at all. He went in there and was all business, I was really proud of the ride; he jumped fantastic," said an incredibly pleased Smith. "He's got everything - he's the whole package. It's an unbelievable feeling to be sitting on him; I am blown away every time I ride him."
As the top-placed rider to have not completed a CCI4*, Smith was named the USEF National Developing Rider Champion. Smith received a horse transport flight courtesy of The Dutta Corp. as the three-star National Champion."
