How the ranch venues came to be:

Phil and Sandra Merrill spend many hours looking for Spanish horses within USA and abroad.  The determination has paid off in November 2014 when Phil found a horse named Samaritano IX. El Samaritano was brought from the south of Spain and being a “Flying Samaritan” himself, Phil was drawn immediately to this special horse.

Being a Grand Prix dressage champion and was taking the nation by surprise.  Phil and Sandra had the opportunity to go to Spain and meet the magnificent Samaritano IX.  He was everything Phil hoped for and more.  Spanish Yeguadas and the wonderful cultures of flamenco and old town ambiances of Malaga and Seville await you at El Sam!

Hence the couple returned home to Scottsdale AZ with Samaritano IX and a second stallion named Gabito. Samaritano IX is a horse full of presence and life and melts the hearts of everyone who meets him.  When it was time to name the new equine facility, an obvious choice emerged embracing both the man and his horse,   “El Samaritano Equestrian and event Center”.
