Sunflower LS (by Sunset Sam LS out of Blossom xx by Kyeoi Blossom) is by the late SUNSET SAM LS and like her sire has a tremendous jump and powerful movement.

She has excellent conformation and legs. She moves beautifuly with good rhythm and paces. Sunflower is yet to be broken in but will be a mare that we feel would go far in eventing and what a pedigree for a broodmare in the years to come! 

Would consider put into the hands of the right rider enquiries welcome.  


SUNSET SAM LS has a double cross back to DISTELFINK his sire SAM I AM - a full brother to the top jumper DIOMEDES LS now in Australia. DIOMEDES with rider Phillip Steiner was 1st in 8 classes and placed in another 33 for winnings of close to $15,000. Another full brother to SAM I AM is competing at top level in jumpers in the USA as DEVLIN LS. SUNSET SAM himself was an impressive strong type with excellent jumping technique that he passes on to his progeny oldest crop are from 2005. Sunset Sam sadly had to be put down the winter of 2011.


BLOSSOM is an attractive bay thoroughbred mare that was bought as a broodmare. She was loose jumped to make sure she was suitable and she was a “WOW” jumper. Her sire Kyoei Bloosom is a full brother to the legendary eventing sire WESTMINSTER and of course goes back to GROSVENOR who has many progeny now eventing at top level as does WESTMINSTER. 

Also in this pedigree is the valuable IN THE PURPLE bloodline that produced many top jumpers – eg UPS AND DOWNS with John Cottle and eventers including HOFFMAN with Lynn King.
