Simon Remembers He’s A Racehorse

Some weekends are super refreshing, filled with lots of downtime and moments that say “Ahh, I feel so lucky to be alive and I’m so relaxed and recharged!”

This was not one of those weekends for me.

The bright side was the barn.  I got to ride in the sun for three days in a row, and my horse was really well behaved.  We even got to model some of our new stuff, and despite my riding flaws… I feel like we’re going on the right track again.

Plus for the first time in three years, it took me about 20 minutes to catch him.  Due to a series of unfortunate events, Simon got a wild streak and decided to show me how fast he was.

Spoiler alert – he’s pretty fast.

I filled up my phone with photos, and that’s about all I’ve got for Monday.  So enjoy!

  1. weeee!!!!!!!! What a naughty boy – but looks like he enjoyed the run! Love the photo about halfway down with Simon and his friend – ears pinned, running like the wind… 😉

    1. His best buddy is also a TB, but a non racing one. I believe he was race bred, but never made it to track training. O is the fanciest hunter you will find but is not quite as speedy (or as motivated to go fast) as Sir Simon!

  2. ahhh i love all these pics!!!! he’s such an awesome runner – and looks like he’s loving every minute!! (tho perhaps you were less enthused?? lol)
