Simone has been in the horse industry for over 45 years. Starting at the age of three in Palos Verdes, Ca. Simone progressed through the local show system to the “AA” circuit becoming one of the top ranked juniors in the mid 1980’s along with Candice King and Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum in California. After her junior years and Grand Prix she traveled to Europe to bring along young jumpers back to the United States. Although her passion is to import and work with young jumpers she also loves to nurture the young riders in this sport. The future of our next Olympic athletes in Show Jumping starts at the local level.
