Friday Video from SmartPak: Catching up with Camilla Speirs


Irish superstar Camilla Speirs became a hugely popular figure in the sport during her partnership with the practically pony-sized Portersize Just A Jiff, with whom she made plenty of team appearances, finished sixth at Pau in 2016, and rode at Badminton an impressive five times. But since his retirement after the 2017 season, Camilla’s hardly been resting on her laurels — and now, with a string of carefully-produced horses building up in her yard, she’s as hungry as ever to succeed in her sport.

Horse Sport Ireland went to her homebase this summer to find out what she’s been up to, where she hopes to go next, and what you can expect from her current rides — so settle in and catch up with Ireland’s golden girl as we all look ahead to another busy championship year.
