I’m still paused, but today I did this…
Point and shoot low jumper for lease. Simon is a 16.2hh 10 y/o Thoroughbred eligible for Take 2. Tons of miles in the 2’6″-2’9″ jumper and hunter rings, and schooled at home up to 3’3″.
Simon is uncomplicated, amateur friendly and LOVES his job. Puppy dog personality with no spook, buck, bolt or stop. Honest as the day is long. Well schooled on the flat (my 2nd level dressage rider friend says he’s a dream) and has been out cross country once. Simon can pull off a catty jumper course one day, and the next hack bridleless in the field.
Best suited for the jumper ring, and is up for lease only because his chicken mother prefers hunters. Care lease available if he stays at Scattered Oaks Farm outside Austin, TX. Otherwise year lease fee in the low four figures. Flexible terms to the right situation. Horse’s happiness is #1 priority.
If you know anyone looking for a best buddy that can inspire their confidence, let me know. Simon taught me how to horse show, how to be patient and how to be brave. My hope is he can do that for someone else for a bit, while still being under my protective eye.
I’m serious about the “flexible terms to the right situation part.” His happiness is the most important thing, because he’s been so good to me. There’s no such thing as a bad idea so long as he likes it, is not in any harm and I can still keep tabs on him.

Great ad. I hope you find the perfect lease situation for Simon. Hope you are well. You are missed.
Contact Janet Christie and see if she’s got anyone who might be interested….
I wish I lived closer to you! I need a confidence builder for a little bit. Having greenies and Jamp is taking a toll on me.
Nerd horse is such a great guy, I’m confident you’ll find the right situation soon!
Ditto to this!!!! Can we smush NV & TX closer please?
Hope you find the perfect situation.
I wish I was closer! Nerd horse is pretty much what I’m looking for. Especially if he could learn to love cross country!

Here’s hoping you find something so right for Simon and you.
I hope you find the perfect person for the nerdhorse! He is such a special dude with such a fantastic work ethic, he’s got a lot to give. 🙂
Drat. If only you were in Ft Worth, I’d be 100% interested. Lease fee + board puts my budget over the edge, unfortunately. There are so many riders around Austin, though, I know you’ll find a great lessee!
So exciting. Bonus points to a lessee that blogs so that all the Simon fans can continue to see his adventures.
