Simon started his equestrian career riding for well known and respected owners / riders here in the UK.
After competing through the grades he was offered the opportunity to work and be based in Switzerland. Here he had a comprehensive insight into the preparation and training of all grades of showjumper's. Riding for some of Europe’s top owners helped him to understand the horse’s development both physically and mentally along with patience and understanding for each one.
