Sam R, the “Thoroughbred” among the jumper stallions, is a son of the excellent sire Mermus R. Sam R’s dam is the well-known mare Amelusina (Abgar xx x Wagner). Amelusina is also the granddam of Namelus R and the international jumper Idalco (s.Ladalco), and the great-granddam of the Olympic jumper Lamalushi (s.Calando I). Progeny out of the renowned Melusiena line include the international horses Hay Guy, Matcho KB, Velusinus R, Jade, and Esperite.
In 2002, Sam R finished fourth in the KWPN Stallion Selection championships. He completed his 70-day test in Ermelo with great success. The following are comments from his performance test report: “As a jumper, Sam R takes off with lots of power. He is very quick off the ground, as he rocks back on his hind end. He jumps with nice leg technique, good use of his back, and opens up his hind legs very well. Sam R is very careful over jumps and has a great deal of scope. He shows abundant talent as a jumper and gives his rider a very nice feeling.” The scores speak for themselves: Take off: 10, Scope: 9.5, Technique: 9, and Jumping talent: 9.5
A good horse can also be beautiful. Sam R is proof of this. The big, very noble stallion that expresses abundant blood breeds like the best Thoroughbred sire. Sam R offspring are noble, long-legged, long-lined, and show lots of blood. They have a good trot and a very good canter. The oldest offspring are now under saddle. They are very easy to ride, and they jump nicely with excellent take-off. Even as foals, these offspring demonstrate very nice technique and outstanding power off the ground in free-jumping.
The electric jumper W. Adermie (Sam R x Zeus x Joost) placed fourth in the quality assessments for four-year-old jumpers at CSI Twente. One of the most striking six year old show jumpers of the Dutch circuit is Wembley R (Sam R x Lucky Light). Three and a half year old Athene (Sam R x Fedor) was placed fourth in the final of the Dutch national VSN Trophy.
In the meantime, the KWPN has approved the first Sam R son. He is Zahros R, the first and only approved son among the S-year jumper stallions. In the Dutch competition for approved stallions, last winter, scopy Zahros R made a huge impression with his impeccable technique and carefulness.
