Tamie’s Syndicates

What is Syndication?

Horse ownership syndication is when a group of people comes together to purchase shares in a promising horse for a professional event rider. These shares not only cover the actual cost to buy the horse, but the annual costs needed to maintain the horse. For example, if you are joining a horse ownership syndication which offers 10 shares, then you and 9 other people will own that event horse and help maintain the costs of your event horse on an annual basis. The good news is that all of these costs are usually predetermined, and syndications come in many affordable price ranges!

Ellen Ahearn, Eric Markell and Tamie Smith have organized and established the MB Group LLC to help Tamie and Next Level Eventing acquire, produce and compete young horses through the upper levels of eventing. With the assistance of Dr. Maren Engelhardt of Heidelberg, Germany, a knowledgeable advisor in the field of European eventing horses, the MB Group has recently acquired two young horses of excellent pedigree and promise.

MB MaiBlume is a 2010 German Sport Horse Mare who is already making her mark in the eventing world. “Blume” is by Sir Schiwago (by Sir Donnerhall I) and out of a Thoroughbred mare with outstanding jumper bloodlines. She was imported from the barn of Julia Schmid in Lonsee-Urspring, Germany. In early 2016, Blume made her US competition debut in Training level at Shepherd Ranch, where she finished on her dressage score to place 3rd. Next, Tamie and Blume won the Preliminary at Rebecca Farm, finishing on their dressage score. NLE is thrilled with Blume’s talent and athleticism, and can’t wait to see what this amazing young horse accomplishes next!

MB MaiStein is a 2010 Oldenburg gelding from the barn of Kai-Steffen Meier in Gesves, maisteinBelgium. MaiStein is by the Westfalian stallion Rocky Lee, a successful dressage horse at PSG/Inter I level with Ramiro Z bloodlines, and out of a full Thoroughbred mare by Heraldik XX (one of the best eventing sires in the world). With over 50% direct Thoroughbred blood in his first 4 generations, MaiStein has all of the right ingredients to become an eventing superstar. Tamie plans to allow MaiStein to grow and develop into a 4-year-old in 2017, at which point his training will commence and initial competition at the lower levels will be possible.

Ten shares are currently available in the MB Group LLC Syndicate. For more information on this exciting opportunity, click here or contact Tamie directly.

Lucida Syndicate LLC

Glock PullmanGlock Pullman is a proven CCI2* horse who has also had success in the 1.30 show jumpers. He was previously ridden by Rafael Lozano who has now taken the reins on Twizted Syster, aka Chloe, making this very special.

After Twizted Syster seemed to be loving the UK, it seemed like destiny when Mark Todd & Rodney Powell talked about Tamie and Rafa potentially swapping rides.

Glock PullmanChloe has found a wonderful new home with both a great rider and person, and Tamie looks forward to watching their new partnership succeed. Glock Pullman makes a terrific addition to Tamie’s string, and she is thrilled to have the Twizted Syster Syndicate members behind her with this talented new partner.

Both Rafa and Tamie look forward to keeping in touch about both horses, and have a new found friendship in keeping up with their previous equine partners.

Tamie will spend the winter getting to know Glock and his way of going, and looks forward to going to some dressage and jumper shows to really get a good feel for him.

Tamie would also like to extend a special thank you Tiana Coudray & Ruy Fonseca for helping find a great horse!

There is currently one available share in what will now be called the Lucida, LLC For more information please contact Tamie directly.

Dempsey is a Dutch Gelding who was originally bred to be a world-class dressage horse. Dempsey wowed everyone at NLE with his magnificent movement, but when Tamie saw him jump she knew he would make an incredible event horse.

Not only does this amazing horse have the attitude and athleticism to be a champion eventer, his natural abilities are jaw-dropping. He is a professional’s dream horse and Tamie has high hopes for his future. Dempsey started his Eventing career in 2013 and moved up to Training level that same year. In 2014, he placed 3rd at Training at Galway Downs in February, and he successfully moved up to the Preliminary level at Copper Meadows in June. He then earned a 3rd place in the Open Preliminary at Rebecca Farm and 7th place in his first CIC1* at Copper Meadows in September. Tamie and Dempsey traveled to Texas to compete in the American Eventing Championships, where they were named the Reserve Champion in the Preliminary Horse division. They finished out the 2014 season by finishing on their dressage score in the very competitive CCI1* at Galway Downs.

2015 has seen more incredible success for this pair, including a 7th place finish in the Open Preliminary division at Fresno County Horse Park and a great finish on their dressage score in the CIC1* at Galway Downs. Dempsey and Tamie made the move up to Intermediate at the Spring Event at Woodside, finishing in 3rd place in his first attempt at the level! He then contested the CIC2* at Copper Meadows in June, finishing in 6th, finished 2nd in the extremely competitive CCI2* at Rebecca Farm, finished 4th in the CIC2* at Copper Meadows in September, and then traveled east to compete in the Plantation Field CIC2* where he finished 4th.

Tamie and Dempsey started off the 2016 season with a 7th place finish in the CIC2* at Fresno Country Horse Park and a 6th place finish in his first CIC3* at Galway Downs! At Rebecca Farms, Tamie and Dempsey finished 2nd in the CIC3*. Dempsey made his first international appearance in September at Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials in the CIC3* 8/9 Year Old division. In October, Tamie and Dempsey completed Boekelo CCI3*, jumping clear around a very impressive cross country track.

One share remains in the West Coast Dempsey Syndicate LLC. Please contact Tamie for more information.
