Richard's Background

 
Born and raised in South West England, Richard Smith grew up intensely involved in his family’s commercial driven game bird shooting operation.
 
Rich went on to study game bird management at Harpury College(UK) and then went on to run his own private pheasant shoots before working with a renowned commercial pheasant and partridge shoot in Southern England.
 
At a very young age Richard immersed himself in a British way of life steeped in tradition, ultimately leading him on a journey to bring the English style and tradition of shooting to The United States.  
 
A longtime dream became reality when Rich founded The Royal United Company in St Thomas, PA. At present the company’s unique game bird, sporting clay shoots and coaching tips are in high demand.
