Smart Chic Olena ®, known as “Chic,” is an embodiment of equine greatness, and is a dual AQHA World Champion in both cutting and reining—the only horse to ever accomplish this. Chic has also been inducted into the AQHA Hall of Fame, NRHA Hall of Fame and the NRCHA Hall of Fame. The 1985 stallion’s legacy, expertly preserved by Trevor and Tiffiny Bond, exemplifies a commitment to allow Chic’s legacy to continue to transcend time.

With more than $14 million in progeny earnings, his lineage boasts winners in every discipline. His offspring are renowned for their versatility and easy-to-ride nature, excelling in roping, reining, cutting, reining cow horse and barrel racing—a testament to the “magic cross” that Chic represents.

“As a versatile stallion himself, it’s easy to see why his offspring have been so successful in so many different disciplines,” Tiffiny said. “Chic has been gone for 11 years, but his legacy is as strong as ever.”

In a recent display of Chic’s lasting influence, Collen All Chics, a son of Smart Chic Olena, secured a victory at the Riata Buckle #9.5, earning $112,060. This success, under the guidance of Cody Marx, is a testament to Chic’s enduring impact in the roping world and all of the Western performance horse industry.
