Another super event for Jeffree Eventing on the weekend where I rode 6 horses. Firstly a big thankyou to the organising committee of Tonimbuk Horse Trials for everything they had to deal with, and ensuring that riders and horses remained safe in some trying conditions. Woodmount Lolita was once again the star of the stable! She put together three lovely phases and took out the win in the CCI3* class. She will now make the exciting step up to 4* at Wandin in two weeks time! Koyuna Tactician was back in full force in the CCI2* giving me an [...]
Santoro (Sammy) is a 16hh Warmblood gelding, who was bred at Ryan’s Horses in 2012. He is by Starnberg out of a Regardez Moi mare, and is owned by Sam and syndicate members including Craig Sanderson (Talk Time Psychology), and Mark and Lisa Rudelic. Santoro came to Jeffree Eventing in October 2018 but officially joined the team in July 2019. He finished 2nd overall in the Young Event Horse class at Melbourne 3DE in June, and since then has stepped up to 1 star level nicely, taking out 2nd place at Tooradin Horse Trials, only his second run at this level. [...]
It was 6 years almost to the day between Calypso coming into our lives and his official retirement from top level eventing with Sam at the Aus3DE in 2019. Calypso was purchased from Alexandra Townsend when he was 11 years old and Sam had just turned 15. We saw him advertised and thought he would totally fit the bill for what we wanted, except for the price tag. Regardless of this we went to have a look and Alex was simply fabulous, she saw it was a great fit too, and so we paid what we could up front, [...]
On November 23 and 24 I ended the competition season at Tooradin Horse Trials, and it was a great way to finish with all of my horses coming home with rosettes! Congratulations to the committee who really changed it up this year with lots of new initiatives, the grounds looked amazing and the courses rode really well! It was also great being close to home and having friends and family visit, thanks to everyone who came and supported. Wimborne Conjuror stepped up for his first 2 star start, producing a nice test and jumping a little green but double clear to [...]
Sam Jeffree riding Woodmount Lolita takes out the National Young Rider Championship 2019 at the Australian International Three Day Event. They also placed 3rd overall in the CCI***L class! (Photo credit Brittanny Grovenor) The long but absolutely necessary Australian International 3 Day Event thank you post! What an epic time we had in Adelaide, an amazing event in such a unique setting. It is hard to quantify the amount of effort that goes into making this happen – the first thank you must go to everyone involved in running the event!! This dream ending would never have taken place without the [...]
Cross country day in Adelaide has been great! Lily was a super star and flew around the 3* clear and under time to move her into 3rd position going into showjumping! I couldn’t be happier with her and so glad to be able to share it with Fiona Mitchell. Calypso went around the 4* clear picking up just a couple of time penalties but gave me a great feel most of the way! He ate up the course and has moved into 4th position but it is with many mixed emotions that I announce that Calypso has been withdrawn from the [...]

A fabulous outcome for Sam at the 4yo Young Event Horse class at Maryland Horse Trials!! Prinz Von der Ahe ACF is a horse Sam has been training during his time with Boyd Martin. At this event they scored a fantastic 67.1 out of 70 for the jumping, gallop and overall impression to win the class! Sam also finished in 6th place on Magic Spirit, his other horse in that class — qualifying both for the USEA Young Event Horse East Coast Championships in October! The video below is Prinz at his very first cross country schooling session just [...]
Here are Sam and Woodmount Lolita nailing their winning cross country round at Melbourne International 3 Day Event! We think Lily was amazing considering how new she is to this level! Thanks to Rider Video for the footage.
