Sam’s Saddled for Success

This year's Badminton winner, Sam Griffiths has teamed up with Zebra Products Ltd in a sponsorship deal that sees him supported by Italian saddle brand Amerigo, Uvex riding helmets, and Cavallo clothing and boots collection.

Based on the Dorset / Somerset border, Sam runs his string of 15 horses which include; his four star rides Paulank Brockagh (his Badminton winner) and Happy Times, together with the up and coming Favorit Z and Angelo IV.


Having used Amerigo saddles for the last eight years, Sam was delighted to receive support from these three renowned brands. As part of the affiliation Sam will receive Amerigo saddles for his five top horses together with Vespucci bridles and accessories – part of the Amerigo range. He'll also be kitted out in Cavallo's competition wear, riding boots and fashion line, alongside Uvex helmets.

'Quite simply I feel the competitive advantage when riding in Amerigo,' said Sam. 'The dressage saddles allow the horse to move freely and the jumping saddles give me security over even the biggest jumps but still ensure the horse has shoulder movement. They also offer the perfect fit every time, which is especially important in event horses that can change shape in a day!'

'It's fantastic to have Sam on board as one of our riders,' said Simon Middleton, managing director at Zebra Products Ltd, the exclusive UK distributor of Amerigo, Cavallo and Uvex. 'Sam has all the attributes of a great equestrian; a wealth of experience, skill and natural horsemanship, alongside dedication and determination. We're looking forward to working with him as he continues on the road to success and being part of that journey.'
