Jumping

Will Simpson

"An important part of my job is managing his career from a longevity standpoint-from how I train him, how much we jump, and what I include in his nutrition program. Which for me, will always be Platinum Performance. I've been using it since 1996, and it's a simple, effective program that I take all around the world with me."

On Why He Rides

"I wanted to ride Western in the beginning. Then I saw these incredible jumper riders communicate with their horses – it was if they had invisible magical aids. Man and beast flying over jumps as big as houses! Two beings working in unison as one, before the rider so much as put his leg on the side of the horse to send him forward the horse read his thoughts and reacted as if the two minds melded into one single electro-pulsating brain wave striving to go clear and fast. A big turning point for me was seeing this communication between man and mammal. This is why I ride."
