Smith continued, "When I think back to last summer and being a ball of nerves going back into the show ring after so many years off, I think it's fair to say this year has been better than any of us could have anticipated. I've had so much fun learning how to ride again and met great new friends while catching up with the riders of my junior years. I thought having a circuit award like this added to the excitement of the individual shows and love my new Kastel Denmark sun shirts that I won along the way!"

This award means a lot to me because it was my first time back in the big jumper classes in two years. I wasn't really trying to chase points, I was just focused on having fun and learning the ropes again," she said.
