  Palomino Gelding


Simon is a 5 year old Bashkir Curly & Quarter Horse cross measuring 15 hh. This gelding belongs to the Camick family who lives near Washago, Ontario. Here is what the family has to say about Simon.

Mom's thoughts - "Simon was love at first site. When we first saw him, my daughter & I just looked at each other and nodded, this was the horse we wanted! He was so handsome & calm. Simon is our first horse and we are sure learning lots. It has certainly been a challenge though, working through what we called his teenage mentality, so young & energetic!. What a fine horse Simon is, we love him so much."

Girl and Palomino HorseTheir daughter writes - "Simon sure knows how to suck up the attention. He's too cute! I was so excited, Simon was my first young horse. I thought he might be one of those push over horses, but not Simon, he is very smart and mischievous. His canter is really smooth and his trot as well. He's pretty fast too. He can show some attitude, but he's awesome. I love him."

Dad says - "We have enjoyed having Simon in the family for almost 2 years now. Personally, I like the early morning feedings. When I am headed for the barn, Simon always greets me with a whinny type of sound that says "Nice to see you". (I know it was all about the food, but it is still nice.) In the evenings, I like to watch him show off, circling the field at a run. His canter during lessons is especially nice to watch.

Simon is currently being boarded at Chomar Hill stables near Barrie. His trainer describes him as a very nice mover that could excel as a hunter/show prospect. Although we love Simon dearly, we have realized that we do not have the skills to take him there.

We would like to sell him to an experienced rider that can help Simon realize his full potential. So Simon is for sale for $3000. You can contact Rob at (705) 728-5803 if you are interested in this beautiful boy."

Congratulations to Simon for being our January 28st, 2008 Horse of the Week!
