Jolly Jumper joined us on the 13th of March 2019.
Pretty soon he revealed himself to be a lively colt, full of
curiosity and very amenable with humans. He is also very elegant
and full of vim and vigour. He’s a real bundle of dynamite.
At two weeks old, he is rarely on four legs all at the same
time. Blessed with incredible energy, he only stops to sleep or
feed, then is off again into the air like a catapult. He loves to
be upright and gallops in all directions under the incredulous gaze
of his mother (who is getting used to him). Poor Ocean wonders
where this little extra-terrestrial has come from!
At seven months, Jolly Jumper, who has just been weaned, is a
magnificent foal with great size and good bone… He is very much out
of the ordinary and is still very gentle! We have great faith in
His father, Ulyss Morinda, who was born in 2008, 5* CIRALE, is
from a blood line rated 8 out of 10 by the ANSF. The line
returns to the Grand Prix mare Utricule (by Monceaux) then to her
daughter Piperazine Laleu, mother of many excellent horses.
Ulyss Morinda carries five Thoroughbred lines, amongst which is the
famous Laudanum, but also Ladykiller, Furioso, Pericles and
Monceaux. He also has Jalisco B as a maternal grand-father, thus he
has inherited all their best points.
The details of this beautiful blood line and the performances
with photos and videos can be seen on Ulyss Morinda’s page.
Ulyss, 6 year old Hunter Champion of France, returned to his true
discipline, CSO, as a 7 year old in 2015. Ridden from now on
by Rik Hemeryck (Belgium), he won the Selle Francais Young
Stallions Masters for 7 year olds (classed as ‘Very Promising’ by
the ANSF), and at 9 years old, he had already won and been placed
in numerous competitions at 1m50 (CSI 3*).
In 2018, Ulyss confirmed his quality, by being placed second at
the start of the year in the 3* Grand Prix at Bonheiden over 1m50
(just half a second off Daniel Deusser), placed seventh in the 1m50
jumping at Bourg en Bresse 4*, and jumping the 1m55 at Mauberge
with an incredible disdain for the fences. Still ridden by
Rik Hemeryck, he was then placed in the 1m60 Grand Prix,
participated in his first Nations’ Cup (Gijon CSIO 5*) and obtained
an ISO 160 in 2018.
In 2019 he confirmed his position once again : he’s been placed
many times over 1m50/1m55, and won a 1m60 Grand Prix in England
(see the section News). He’s also taken part in his first 5*
Rolex Grand Prix and proved he has the ability to jump anything he
meets at this level.
The mother of Jolly Jumper Morinda was born into the purple :
she is uterine sister to the stallion Open Up Semilly (ISO 162),
born, like him, at the home of Eric Levallois , she unfortunately
only competed in a few small classes.
Parco, her father, is a son of the founding father Darco, one of
the best stallions in the world on the WBFSH Stallion show jumping
ranking list. He was himself a great international winner at
the World Cup and Olympic level. Parco inherited his sporting
qualities and showed this in important competitions such as coming
ninth in the World Championships at Aix-la-Chapelle.
JIPSY DE LA LANDE, daughter of Arpege Pierreville, took the
record in the Nash sales then competed at Grand Prix level under
foreign colours. In 2002, she produced the stallion Open Up
Semilly (ISO 162) who competed ridden by Florian Angot up to
CSIO. The full sister of Open Up Semilly, Openfield de
Beaufour, also competed at Grand Prix level (1m50) under foreign
colours. Their mother, Jipsy de la Lande, then produced the very
good Ipsy, who was regularly placed and won competitions over 1m40
and 1m45 (ISO 142).
STAR DE LA LANDE, by Grand Veneur, produced many winners. The
second generation from this excellent mare is just as talented (for
example Galant de la Lande, who jumped 1m55, or Uruguay Courcelle
who reached the 1m60 level and ISO 152).
This superb maternal family continues with UKRAINE by Ibrahim.
It is the direct line of Jo de la Lande (ISO 164), of Quam de la
Lande (ISO 156) and Rodosto, ICC 179, ISO 121, who was in the team
that became Vice-Champions of the World for Eventing with Jean
Teulere at La Haye in 1994.
