"Rhyming Simon" is the ultimate horse for young "trainers in training." One year ago he had limited off the track under-saddle experience. He has now, among other things, completed his first cross country schooling outing, demonstrating both courage and intelligence as he navigated through a series of never before seen obstacles, including dropping off a training level bank and straight over a trakehner! He just competed in his first ever horseshow, putting in two double clear 2'9 rounds and earning a 3rd and 4th.... (read more) Not too shabby for a horse that had never in his life jumped until last year! He is both talented and very willing to please, but the primary thing that truly sets Simon apart is his demeanor; though his training was managed and overseen by myself and I am an experienced trainer, the actual riding was primarily done by advanced-intermediate students!
Rare is the horse that will canter through water straight up and over a coop without even needing to follow a lead on his first ever cross country schooling, but far more rare still is the horse that you can trust to do his first jump, his first trail ride, his first cross country schooling, and his first horse show with your students in the saddle. He is scheduled to do his first combined training event this month, and I trust him completely out on that course with my student, he has given me every reason to trust him. If I was currently looking to buy lesson horses, I would have bought him myself, but since I'm not, I was honored to work with him to get him ready for sale and operate as the trainer and sales agent, and am truly excited to see him meet his person and excel in whatever he does.
