Two Years of Nerd Horse
Last year, I did a post showing how Simon evolved in the first year I owned him. Since this July marks two years since I’ve had the creature, I figured I’d do another before and after type post.
Again, we’ve had our ups and downs but I feel more strongly than ever that this horse is the perfect match for me right now. I just hope he stays sound and we can enjoy many more years together.
We may be struggling with some of the sames issues as last year, like soundness and lead changes, but when I look back at these pictures I can’t help but feel very proud.

Aw! He is such a cute, and always seems so happy to be at work. I love the May 2014 riding photos, and the April 2014 jumping photo. Super hunter form in that one! 🙂
So you should feel very proud- what a difference!
Happy gotcha day to you and Simon!
Awe!!! Love the journey!
Happy anniversary to you and Simon! You’ve come a long ways in the past year 🙂 Great photos!
You know what I love most about those pics?
The jumping pics from last year are nice. You both look relaxed and happy to be out there. There’s nothing at all wrong with them.
But this year… this year you are OWNING those jumps. You’re ATTACKING them. You look like you’re on a mission, you’re tight with Simon, and he’s right there with you.
You’re a team. 🙂
I love how the pictures show you two developing more confidence and trust in each other. You guys look great!
You guys have come so far! Love getting to look back a bit:)
You have come so far together! My instructor is fond of pointing out that the warm ups at rolex are pretty much the same lessons we have at home, just over bigger fences. 😉 We all keep working on the same things once we pass a certain level of proficiency.
I like how the last evolution picture is jumper ring. Muahahaha.
You should feel proud! He is looking better and better. Hopefully you over come those soundness issues soon.
Happy Anniversary! Feels like forever :). And may 2014 is my favorite :)!!
Happy 2 years!!!! 🙂
You should be extremely proud! You’ve both come very far since last year, and gosh, Simon is just looking fantastic. Not that he didn’t look great last year, but man. He looks a grown-up sporthorse now 😀
Such a good, beautiful boy! I want to call him “Professor” instead of nerd lol
Happy 2 years! I love all the jumping pictures of you guys- you both look so confident and happy.
Congrats! Here is to more years together!
