Written by: Sue Weakley

Release Date: 2014-06-26

Wellington, FL - June 26, 2014 - Lauren Sammis and Lombard V, a 10-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding (Lobster-Heidi, Diplomat) owned by Hope Greenfield, were on top of their game at the recent Centerline Events at HITS II in Saugerties, NY. The pair scored a 70.658 and a 71.579 percent for first place finishes in the Intermediaire II on both June 14 and 15, and earned the FEI High Score Award on June 14.

“I was very, very pleased with him on Saturday and it was a really solid test,” Sammis said. “The horse is going really well. He’s getting 8s on gaits.”

Sammis and Lombard V, along with another Grand Prix horse, Whitman, will depart for the United Kingdom on July 2 to spend two months training with Kyra Kyrklund in West Sussex. Whitman is an 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding (Rhodiumr-Camora, Saluut) owned by Jane Suwalsky, and Sammis has had the ride on him for about two months.

Sammis said her main goal while there is to train and then to compete in some smaller shows.

“I plan to get the horses going and get as much consistent help as I can,” she said. “I’ve never been in that situation where I have help every day.”

She plans to return in time to compete in Saugerties, NY, in September and hopes to have the scores to participate at Dressage at Devon .

Sammis is looking to friends for assistance in subsidizing her European expedition., and  will update supporters with exclusive blogs and photos  to include them in her adventures as she travels to learn from one of the greats. If you are interested in helping, contact her at

Meanwhile, she is packing and preparing for her two months with Kyrklund.

“I think I will come a long way, “ she said. “I’m really, really, really, really excited.”
