Sam is a very athletic, well-bred fellow with notables such as Unbridled, Affirmed, and Storm Cat in his background. He has some Dressage in his past (schooled training), including being ridden in clinics with Olympian's. Sam has been started over fences and enjoys Jumping as much as Dressage. He would do well with a rider who wants to do a bit of everything!
Sam does have a special routine that he should stick to during the warmer months: "Sam needs to have night turnout and be stalled during the day, preferably in a stall that does not get alot of bright sunlight. Sam does display some mild head-shaking that we have found to become a non-issue if he is turned out at night, stalled during the day, and ridden with a nose-net attached to the bridle. "
