Welcome to Seaside Farm, LP
Adria Smith has been actively involved in long time equestrian activities in a variety of venues from the hunter / jumper circuit to the halter horse industry. She has now made the transition to the quarter horse hunter industry with ease. In 2017, Adria made her debut in the western pleasure and continues to show in both disciplines.
With great sadness, Seaside Farm’s prestigious breeding stallion, These Irons Are Hot, was euthanized in October 2017. Although difficult, we decided to end his life in a peaceful and dignified manner as possible.
Seaside Farm still raises a small number of exceptional high-end prospects to both show and sell in the quarter horse industry. We are excited about the future of our program and the industry

Dexter was much loved by everyone that he came in contact with – trainers, owners, veterinarians and care givers, and he will be greatly missed. He had a great disposition and tons of personality. He was the standard prop in the many tours given at Gumz Farms – often standing for hours as people, but mainly children, admired and petted him. He was truly a gentle giant and character that endeared him to those who worked with and knew him. He will be long and affectionately remembered with admiration and respect as a great individual, show horse and sire.
