KYZYL DOUBLE or QUITS (Sam to his friends) has an exceptional temperament, very correct movement with excellent feet, a huge stride and an extravagant jump. His bloodlines are full of courage, soundness and stamina. Winner and four placings from his first five outings (see below), since when he has rarely come home empty-handed. He has just resumed competition after a year yard-bound with no transport, and immediately took two placings. He is trained and competed by his 67-year-old breeder/owner.

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).

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.

Sam demonstrated his extraordinary resilience by overcoming Equine Grass Sickness, a condition with 95% mortality. See Sam’s Grass Sickness Diary.

Kyzyl Double or Quits, combining the quality and refinement of the Akhal-Teke with established and proven sporthorse bloodlines, is the ideal stallion to breed the modern event horse.
