Sam Darvill Equestrian

Producing Quality Horses and Ponies for You!

Hi, I’m Sam – Welcome to SD Equestrian – I thought I would tell you a little bit about me.

I’m 31, born 1989 – and although I mainly focus on classical dressage, I have evented, show jumped, showed played polo and polo crosse, and had the great fun of team chasing!

I love in hand training, trick training and natural horsemanship.

I have a good round knowledge of all disciplines and particularly like working with younger or tricky horses. I am diagnosed with Aspergers and proud. It made my teen and adolescent years very difficult, but since my diagnosis at 30, I’ve been able to use it in my favour… I love what I do and want to share it with others.

My main job is producing and selling – I put my time and effort into improving the horses education, teaching them to be a good partner to us humans.


As with my diagnosis, when an equine really understands what a human wants, he can use it to thrive! In time, I would love to run seminars teaching people how to understand themselves, what they want in an equine partner!


The hardest thing when selling is a person who doesn’t know what they want, the second hardest, someone who has totally over thought it and practically wants a unicorn!

Horses and humans can work really well together, it’s about finding that right match!!!

So I decided to dedicate myself to finding those wonderful horses and ponies, assessing them and finding them their perfect owner.
