Chloe Smyth grew up in Poway, California, she began riding in both English and Western disciplines becoming a well-rounded equestrian at a young age. Chloe became involved in Pony club eventually graduating as a C-2. At the age of 15, she became a working student in Ireland to brothers and Olympic riders, Trevor and Steven Smith. Chloe was fortunate to return home with “C.S.I.” a then 5-year-old Irish sport horse/holsteiner gelding who has been instrumental in her career. She and CSI have competed through the 3* level together. In high school, Chloe competed on her schools show jumping team at the 3’9-4’0 level, during which time, she won the Victor-Hugo-Vidal scholarship award for equine knowledge and horsemanship.
