Samaii was awarded Premium at his ZfDP licensing and is one of only a handful of coloured stallions to be accepted into the Oldenburg studbook.
A licensing comment says, ” . . . an exceptionally beautiful and well put together stallion with lots of stallion presence and harmony in his conformation, wonderful side picture and first-class movement. His jumping was very good considering his non-jumping oriented mother line.” Samaii has excellent conformation with extremely good movements: a good over tracking, relaxed walk, roomy trot and uphill canter.”
