Capetown, known as “Simon,” is by the Selle Francais stallion Jamestown and out of a wonderful Irish mare. Jamestown is by Quidam de Revel, whose line has multiple proven, outstanding jumpers through 1.6m. Simon’s dam competed successfully at 1.35m and has produced very talented, “bomb-proof” amateur-friendly mounts.
Simon is no exception; he is exceptionally brave over fences with tons of scope, and is an uncomplicated, forgiving ride. He has USEF show experience at 1m, 1.1m, and 1.15m with schooling experience through 1.3m and scope for 1.4m+; he is an absolute packer through at least 1.15m. Simon has shown and schooled at HITS Ocala, Wellington, HITS Thermal, Thunderbird, Spruce Meadows and more. He would make an outstanding Child/Adult Jumper, Amateur/Owner, or Junior Jumper. Simon has been campaigned through 1.10m by several amateur riders, and he took a junior to her first show and on up through 1m, including equitation classes. With a soft mouth and willing attitude, he could cross over to equitation medals, and will make an excellent dressage mount as well. Absolutely NO show prep - unload and go!
Simon is just as easy on the ground as he is under saddle: stands for farrier, vet, bathing, clipping, etc., is very friendly, and is always the barn favorite. This guy is an absolute gem and is a dream mount for any amateur, junior, or up-and-coming pro.
No history of lameness, has never had injections, zero maintenance!
