General comments

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 him.

Sir : Ulyss Morinda SF

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.


Dam : Ocean's Eleven (octopussy De Beaufour) SF.

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.

Second mare : Jipsy De La Lande SFA

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).


Third mare : Star De La Lande

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.
