Smith Family Performance Horses was started by my mother, Jimmie Miller Smith. Mom bred, owned and promoted the ApHC Hall of Fame stallion IMA DOC O’LENA.

It is because of her insight and intuition that many of IMA DOC O’LENA’s foals (over 40 of them) went on to be National Year End High Point winners, as well as National and World ApHC Champions.

It is with great pride that we continue to promote these proven bloodlines by outcrossing our best, proven mares on only the best modern stallions in the cutting and reining horse disciplines.

One of our current young stallions that has been making a name for himself in the N.C.H.A. is IMA SMART MOVE, by the legendary SMART LITTLE LENA and out of DOCS HICKORY DOLL (ApHC). “Buddy” is a result of a time and, again proven cross of SMART LITTLE LENA and daughters of DOCS HICKORY.

DOCS HICKORY DOLL’s foals have proven so successful, that we have continued breeding her to SMART LITTLE LENA, as well as even more modern, exceptional stallions, such as 2009 NCHA Horse of the Year, HIGHBROW CD, and 2010 NCHA Horse of the Year METALLIC CAT. It is with great anticipation that we await the resulting foals of both of these “one of a kind” outcrosses.

It is this commitment to bettering our breed, event and level of competitiveness, both in the Appaloosa industry, as well as the Open Cuttings of the National Cutting Horse Association, that causes us to push the envelope of my families decades long history of success.
