An Interview with Louise Serio

Congratulations to Team SmartPak Rider and this week’s What the Pro’s Use interviewee, Louise Serio and Castlerock (owned by Bryan Baldwin)! Louise and Castlerock took Wellington by storm winning the $50,000 Chronicle of the Horse/USHJA International Hunter Derby at the 2010 FTI Winter Equestrian Festival. This was Louise’s first Derby win and also her highest score ever earned with the judges awarding her a 99 after the second round.

Louise began training out of Derbydown in 1975 and consistently trains and rides champions in every division at the most prestigious shows on the East Coast as well as traveling the country to judge at those top shows in which she is not competing. Some champions include Gray Slipper, Dream Date, Red Panda, LaFayette and Hat Trick. Louise was instrumental in founding the American Hunter-Jumper foundation. The AHJF is a non-profit, member-supported organization whose mission is to develop and promote the equestrian sport of show hunter-and-jumper competition. It does this through the Young Riders Education Program and other programs designed to meet the industry’s needs. The AHJF is the proud presenter of the Legacy Cup and the World Championship Hunter Rider Awards.

About

SmartPak Equine was founded by riders and horse owners for riders and horse owners. We ride and show Dressage, Hunter/Jumper, Polo, Equitation, Eventing, and Reining. We’ve logged many miles trail riding through New England’s rolling hills and the tough shrubs of Chaparral country. Our extended families include Hanoverians, Oldenburgs, Quarter Horses, Selle Français, Thoroughbreds, Lipizzans, Trakehners, Arabs, Morgans and Appaloosas. Horses, horse care and horsemanship are our passion. We got our start in 1999, with the purpose of simplifying the administration of nutritional supplements and medications to horses. Our patented SmartPak™ supplement feeding system has been adopted by thousands of barns and horse owners across the country, who value knowing that their supplements will be fed correctly. The SmartPak system has been embraced by riders from all disciplines and all levels, including many Olympic medalists. In addition to the SmartPak supplement system, we offer a broad line of horse health, show apparel, tack, dog supplies, and equine and canine pharmacy items sold through our catalogs and here on our website.
