The celebrated Dutch stallion Sampson is now pending his full approval from KWPN. Sampson has had an illustrious career on two continents. Born in Holland, under the name Hannover, A few highlights with the present owner, Kate Levy, include placing numerous times, 2nd, 3rd and 5th in the 1.45/1.50 division at the World Cup Finals in Gothenburg, Sweden 2001. He won numerous titles in the JR/ A/O High divisions across the country including the Calvin Klein Show Jumping Derby at the Hampton Classic and securing championships at big competitions like Lake Placid, Old Salem, Devon and Wellington. Sampson also has an incredible competition history with former riders Eleanor Ritch, in the United States in the junior rankings (it was upon his entry into the United States that his name was changed to Sampson). He had a banner career also with his first international rider, Anton-Martin Bauer from Austria, who competed with him as Remus Con and also Controversial Decision throughout Europe.
The most unusual quality in Sampson is his intelligence and gentle character. He is a horse who is not only incredibly talented and athletic, but who is also very easy to ride and has a huge heart, always aiming to please his rider. He has very adjustable and balanced gates, coupled with a light mouth and supple body. His incredible respect for the fences made him a constant winner in the sport, plus a desire to go very fast. In general, such careful and conscientious horses like Sampson often have nerves or spookiness, but Sampson is very unique in that he was always cool under pressure and fearless in and out of the show-ring.
