Simone is such a sweet and hard working mare. She has a strong forward drive and is the type of mare who always needs to be doing something or going somewhere. Her internal motor always wants to be in high gear and Rob concentrates in his training sessions on bringing her down the gears and relaxing her into her work.
She is such a bold and careful horse you'll often hear Robert joking that Simone is, "Allergic to wood," as she will rarely touch a rail. This girl is quick on her feet and speed is her strength, frequently shaving a second or two off everyone else's jump off. However, her need for speed can sometimes make riding combinations a little bit hairy. Rob's favourite exercise for this mare is relaxation on the flat, grids and related lines.
