Sam is also recognized by the United States Dressage Federation (USDF); she has earned her Bronze, Silver and her USDF Gold Medal. As a Young Rider, Sam competed at the National level earning top 10 placements, including a Silver medal as an individual rider and a Bronze with her team. This experience makes her especially qualified to prepare and coach the competing junior riders in her lesson program. As a trainer competing in the professional division, Sam has earned a regional Reserve Champion and a National Top 4 placement for Horse of the Year at 3rd level.
What differentiates Sam from other trainers is her commitment to and emphasis on continuing education, both for herself and for her staff. Sam regularly clinics with former Olympians and World Cup riders. She has trained with Steffen Peters, Sabine Schut and Laura Graves to name a few. Sam's noteworthy talent and athleticism is equally matched to her dedication to top quality horse care and her passion for constant improvement within the equestrian industry.
Our wonderful school horses come in all shapes and sizes. They are all healthy and happy; BEQ's care of their horses is always top of mind. Sam also helps clients to find and purchase dream horses.
Custom Saddlery makes sure we ride in the highest quality and most comfortable saddles possible. We wouldn't ride in anything else!
We prefer bridles from Solo Equine as the standard our horses. Their total comfort and many options give each of our horses the best fit.
Not only are the feeds from Purina best in class, the customized support for our local rep means all our horses' diets are tailored to their needs.
