In 2010 Vicky completed a three year course in Veterinary Homeopathy and has found that this natural system of medicine hugely benefits the racehorse as it treats the totality of the animal stimulating the body's own healing process. Homeopathy has no side effects or withdrawal periods, which is a great advantage in the horse racing and competition world and is also very cheap and easy to administer. A holistic approach to yard health and wellbeing enables us to combine the best conventional medicine and diagnostics with the gentle and effective treatment of disease and injury using homeopathy wherever possible.
Vet Dr Sue Armstrong who is one of the world’s foremost experts on the homeopathic treatment of animals, works closely with Bryan and Vicky and visits the yard regularly. She says ‘I am passionate about both veterinary medicine and veterinary homeopathy, and it isn’t about choosing between the two approaches as we select what is in the animal’s best interests. My ethos is that each animal should receive a bespoke treatment and after good diagnostics it is about choosing the most safe and ethical treatment with a mind to the long term outcome.’
5 winners in 5 years! Best move we ever made was to buy into horses trained by Bryan Smart and his dedicated staff. No better sight than to see the horses working on the gallops at Hambleton House.

Welfare of the race horses is paramount for the Smarts. Fantastic trainer and a great team including Kevin and Becks!! Highly recommend investing at this yard.
Lovely to see Compton River and the other 2 year olds cantering up in the sunshine this morning - they are looking wonderful - spring is in the air!
'Having had a lifelong love of all things equine in 2012 I decided to get involved in racing flat horses as an owner. On spotting an advert for shared ownership in a two year old with Bryan Smart at Hambleton House I paid a visit. On meeting Bryan and his staff who were all helpful and clearly very knowledgeable I was hooked. The last seven years have been a marvellous journey having had over 20 winners including a Group 1 and a Listed race which is in no small way down to a master trainer. On my journey I have met some wonderful people many of whom are now friends.
Team Smart are truly the custodians of the dream factory!!!'
Fully professional and a superb team Bryan has at sutton bank stables, amazing to be associated with them all.
