 LICENSED BY THE ANGLO-EUROPEAN

STUD BOOK

Kyzyl Akhal-Tekes are thrilled to announce that Sam has been accepted as a licensed stallion by the

Anglo-European Studbook.

 

KYZYL DOUBLE or QUITS (Sam to his friends) has a beautiful, trainable temperament, very correct movement and and an enormous, scopey canter and jump. His bloodlines are full of courage, soundness and stamina.

 

 

Sam scored a fraction under 68% in his first dressage test. He is now in training with international event rider Anthony Clark, to begin eventing. He has begun his career jumping double clears affiliated showjumping, and is bold, fast but careful across country.

Sam's sire WELTON DOUBLE CRACKER is an international event horse. His grandsire DOUBLE TRIGGER is one of the outstanding long-distance racehorses of the last quarter-century, winning two Ascot Gold Cups and £500,000 total prize money. His grand-dam Baby Welton is  an Advanced event horse by the immortal WELTON CRACKERJACK.

Sam's dam GULARA, an elite-graded mare from Russia's leading Stavropol Stud, never competed due to a head injury at two years. Her sire GAIGYSIS is the best Akhal-Teke stallion of his generation, and the most prolific sire ever of Akhal-Teke breed champions (sire and grandsire of four Russian champions and eight world champions).

 

Sam was shown as a yearling by a 14-year-old girl, placing 3rd at the prestigious Welton Youngstock Show (beating the Young Sporthorse Champion of the Royal Welsh Winter Fair) and 3rd at the Monmouthshire Show (Sporthorse Breeding). 

At the end of last year Sam was licensed as a stallion by the Anglo-European Studbook. He is also awaiting grading by VNIIK, the All-Russia National Institute for Research and Horse-Breeding.   

Showing his scope with Anthony Clark

The line of Welton Sporthorses has a history of more than fifty years, producing many Badminton and other 4* eventers including a European Champion, as well as Grand Prix dressage horses. The Akhal-Teke -  agile, tough, and supremely responsive to the sympathetic rider - is the world's most versatile sporthorse, having set Olympic Dressage and USSR Showjumping Puissance records. The breed is the second fastest in the world (behind the English Thoroughbred), measured over distances from 1,000 to 4,000m. Added to these attributes is legendary stamina.

The Akhal-Teke, with its speed, bottomless stamina, resilience and quick intelligence, offers priceless genetic material. Kyzyl Double or Quits, combining these qualities with established and proven sporthorse bloodlines, is the ideal stallion to breed the twenty-first century event horse. 

Sam demonstrated his toughness and courage in overcoming Grass Sickness, a devastating illness with a 95% mortality rate (See Sam's Grass Sickness Diary). While still too thin for a saddle, he was regularly ridden out bareback.
