The famous well known rider Mr Harvey Smith (born 29 December 1938) is a former British show jumping champion.
Smith was born in the West Riding of Yorkshire, and still maintains his stables at Craiglands Farm.
His career was often controversial in 1971 he was disciplined overturned on appeal after he gave a "V sign" to the judges following a near perfect round which won him the British Show Jumping Derby for the second year in succession and also a 'tongue-in-cheek' part in an advert for Victory V sweets with the slogan 'They've got a kick like a mule!' Smith became so famous that he embarked on a brief, but unsuccessful, singing career.
His sons, Robert and Steven, also became equestrian champions. In 1990, after retiring from competition, Harvey joined with wife and trainer Sue Smith, a former showjumper herself, to form a racing team at their Yorkshire base, Craiglands Farm.
Their charge Auroras Encore won the 2013 Grand National. Mattie Brown was the first horse to win 2 consecutive Hickstead Derbies.
Having won the Derby on him in 1970, Harvey Smith failed to bring the trophy back the following year he claimed to have forgotten it, while Hickstead founder Douglas Bunn felt that Harvey was overconfidently presuming he'd win it straight back.
