Simin, an outstanding horse whisperer, is the latest individual to be discovered by San Miguel as part of its search for the San Miguel Rich List. The list is made up of 20 ‘life-rich’ individuals from around the world who have unique, compelling and aspirational human stories.
Born to German-Afghan parents, Simin Nadjafi was just two years old when she climbed atop her first horse. It wasn’t long before she realised that her exceptional ability with these beautiful creatures went much deeper than just being a skilled rider.
She’s now developed a unique understanding and method for taming horses, established through natural methods combining careful eye contact with an innate understanding of body language to form a fluid, almost instinctual bond.
The strength of her methods lie in the rediscovery of the intuitive communication that all animals rely on, but that we, as humans, have long forgotten. “It’s only once we understand where we’ve come from that we can truly understand ourselves," says Simin.
Simin’s accomplishments include working with Monty Roberts, the famous American horse whisperer on his events in Barcelona, Madrid and Estepona. Following this Simin followed Monty to his ‘Flag Is Up Farms’ event in Solvang California, to learn the techniques of ‘Join-Up’ and ‘Follow-Up’.
