Beschreibung

Sammy Davis jr. has the lightness, elegance and presence of its namesake, the US entertainer Sammy Davis jr. So the name fits this incredibly charming and smart black gelding, who knows how to score marks in trot and canter and, moreover, who is just a great talent for piaffe and passage.

In the line of his father San Remo Sammy Davis jr. is a grandson of Sandro Hit, who is indeed responsible for the Olympic team gold winner Showtime. His mother Wenja even brought the Grand Prix horse Lukas under Franziska Stieglmaier and the advanced level (S) dressage horse Lothar (both by Lagiator). From the grandmother Legend -P- (by Lanthanum) comes the Inter I successful Weltvision (by Welt Hit II).

Dr. Cornelia Herbert has trained Sammy Davis jr. and has brought him in the sport. Under her the Bavarian gelding celebrated in 2013, at the age of seven first successes in advanced level classes. In 2014 I started training "Sammy". Unfortunately Dr. Cornelia Herbert died soon after. She would have certainly be pleased to see how incredibly well Sammy Davis Jr. develops. Matthias Herbert is his owner and he is absolutely happy about his great success in Donaueschingen, where he won the qualifier with 76.20 percent of the Louisdor- Price final.

Then in the Festhalle in Frankfurt Sammy Davis jr. showed his brilliance. After finishing second in the warm-up competition, we won the final of the Louisdor Prize.

On top of that, in 2017 we were appointed to the A-squad, won the bronze medal at the German Championships, were part of the winning Nations Cup team in Aachen and won team gold at the European Championships in Gothenburg/SWE. And last but not least we won the World Cup freestyle test in Salzburg/AUT.

He continued his picture perfect career in 2018 with World Cup successes in Neumünster and Paris/FRA. We won bronze in the Special and silver in the freestyle at the German Championships. We were part of the victorious Nations Cup team in Aachen and traveled to the World Equestrian Games in Tyron/USA after that. This is where we became the Team World Champions and were able to achieve great single scores. After a short recovery we had a comeback with top placings in the World Cup qualifications of Lyon/FRA and Stuttgart and finished the Saab top 10 Dressage competition in Stockholm/SWE with a personal record on the second place in the Grand Prix (78,196) and third place in the freestyle (84,725).
