Owner, Jeff Burley remembers, “When I handled Simon at a previous position, he was always just so good minded it didn't matter if it was breeding season or not,” Burley recalls. “I have found after having several of his babies that he is passing this same temperament on and making all of them very trainable and great show horses. An advantage to breeding to him is it doesn't matter if you have a quarter horse or thoroughbred, you will have a horse that is eligible for AQHA and APHA classes.”
