Samara Fly stood as Longacres Stud’s premiere stallion from 2008 to 2018. In that time he sire around 150 top quality foals, whilst also competing at the highest levels in dressage, and proved himself beyond any doubt as a truly exceptional stallion. His trainer Michael Eilberg said of him “This young horse is a Grand Prix prospect of the future, with so much upward movement, the like I have never seen in a coloured horse”.
He was THE coloured stallion to watch until his untimely passing from a complication following a routine veterinary procedure. Early in his career, he and young rider Alex Ingoe Topham, competed successfully at Medium/Advanced Medium Dressage and qualified for both the BD Summer Regionals + the Hickstead International Young Dressage Horse Finals. Later with talented young rider Hannah Doggett he went on to be crowned North West Area PSG champion and competed successfully at Grand Prix Level.
