Sam Schaffhauser


1 year with Arenus


This Arkansas native entered the horse world at a tender age. His father, NRHA professional Randy Schaffhauser, planted the reining seed early and Sam has turned it into a successful non-pro career in his youth. Upon college graduation, Sam joined his father as a professional trainer and was consistently in the top 10 and top 5 at the industry’s most prestigious events.

In 2011, Sam joined Sore No-More Ambassador, Tim McQuay, in his training business where he continued to excel. After spending many years with the McQuays, he made the decision to open his own business – Schaffhauser Performance Horses. Currently, Sam’s lifetime earnings sit near $445,000 and his horses are consistently ranked.

Sam now operates his business out of his Tennessee farm where he resides with his wife, Jeanna, and daughter, Becca.

“The Sore No-More Performance Ultra products have worked wonders on a ton of our horses. Reiners are bound to get body sore from time to time, and I love having these products in my tack room because I know I can ease the soreness and help them perform at their best.”
