UPDATED PHOTOS and VIDEOS!!!!!
Simon is a LOOKER!! His mind and body make him a barn favorite!! Simon is a smart and fancy 8 year old, dark bay gelding. Since day 1, Simon has demonstrated that he has a fantastic brain and the athletic ability to match. Under saddle, Simon quietly and calmly can walk, trot, and canter and has great breaks. He is currently building his dressage skills including correct bending, leg yields, and the basics of shoulder-in. He has a strong natural sense of balance and loves working over trot poles at both the walk and trot. Simon has even trotted over a few small cross rails and was fantastic—no fussing, hesitation, or rushing! On the ground Simon is attentive and has good manners. He does occasionally become excited when working outside and so a quiet, confident leader is recommended. Overall, Simon is a sweet and SMART boy who would do well in most disciplines. Will be a fantastic partner for a confident teenager or adult working with a trainer. Not recommended for beginners. Simon should be suitable for most lower level disciplines!
