He is an 11 year old bay stallion by Ramiro B out of Flex (Safari) and a ½ brother to Flexible and Flexing. Edward won the 7yr old championship with him at Dublin Horse Show in 2009.
He is a horse Edward has always thought a lot of. Last year saw him progress up through the ranks, both at home and abroad and in August of 2011 he jumped superbly at his first 5* show at Dublin, particularly in the Grand Prix. This was followed up with his first Team Ireland appearance at the 5* Nations Cup show at Gijon where Ireland finished 6th.
2012 saw Samgemgee jump for Team Ireland on the Nations Cup team in Lummen and Copenhagen.
