General comments

Ulyss Morinda, born on May 23 2008, approved as a Selle Francais. Anglo Arab and AES stallion, and with a CIRALE osteo-articulaire score of 5*, as well as tested negative for PSSM1 and other ailments (see his complete results on this page), has experienced a meteoric rise to the top level in his sport in just three short years. This is not astonishing if we examine his ancestral blood line which takes him back to the famous UTRICULE (who was ridden by Marc Roguet). You will find the years 2016, 2017 and 2018 available in detail on a PDF on this page.

On the 16th of June 2019, in England, Ulyss Morinda broke into the small circle of 1m60 Grand Prix winners. It was the biggest and most important victory of his career. Here is what was written in Grand Prix Replay, one of the numerous magazines which covered the event.

“With great style, Rik Hemeryck beat a whole host of British riders on their home ground in the 4* Grand Prix at Bolesworth! Riding Ulyss Morinda, an eleven year old Selle Francais stallion, the Belgian rider executed a perfect jump off in a time of 38.33 seconds. Three tenths of a second slower was the American Laura Kraut who came second with Vvaramog de Breve, followed by the British Ellen Whitaker, also double clear in 39.31 seconds."

Hunter Champion of France for Six year olds in 2014, ELITE. Numerous placings as a seven year old in 2015 in the CSIYH up to 1.40 m and winner of the Seven Year Old Stallion Masters at Saint-Lo. Classed ‘Very Promising’ in the Guide to Young Selle Francais Stallions 2016. In 2016 he won at 1.40 in the 3* CSI at Bonheiden (BE), was 8th in the 4* CSI at Kronenberg in November, 3rd in a 2* CSI class at Longines in Paris… In 2017, he was the winner of two classes at the Villeneuve Loubet CSI, as well as having a 3rd, then a 7th in a 1.50m ‘Ranking’ CSI at Lanaken, a 10th in the 1.45m ‘Ranking’ Maubeuge CSI, also placed in the 1.50m ‘Ranking’ in the Fontainebleau CSI on the ‘Grand Parquet’, a winner of the 1.50m Lier/Azelhof CSI, placed again in the 1.50m Lier CSI, then 10th in the 1.40m and then 8th in the 1.50m ‘Ranking’ in the 3* Liege CSI. Finally, in December, they are 6th in the 1;45 m, in the famous LONGINES in Paris and 8th of the Grand Prix 1,45 m in the famous "Jumping of Mechelen".

2018 Season : After a first CSI at Lier, Ulyss and Rik began the year with a roll of drums at the 3* CSI at Bonheiden. After two clear rounds in the 1.40m, Ulyss took part in the 1.50m Grand Prix in which he qualified for the jump off and finished second in a field of nine that were in the jump off. It’s worth noting that he was less than a second slower than the winner, Daniel Deusser. In May, in the Maubeuge Grand Prix (1.55m), he proved that the height posed him no problem. Distracted by the giant screen, he finished with a single mistake (4 pts), but had cleared the rest of the course by at least 10 to 15cm. Ulyss followed this by being placed 7th in a 1.50m in the 4* CSI in Bourg en Bresse then in June, he won the first Grand Prix qualifier at the 4* CSI in Gross Viegeln in Germany. He was much remarked upon in this Grand Prix where he effortlessly soared over all the fences! He followed this up by producing three placings in the two CSI events at Knokke in June and July, one of which was his first placing in a 1.55m Grand Prix which he should have won! He continued with his excellent run in the two 4* CSI at Samorin in Slovakia, where, on an exceptional grass course, he managed his first placing in a 1.60m Grand Prix. This demonstrates how firmly he has seized hold of his position at this level. He also took part in his first 1.60m Grand Prix and finished with one mistake (4 faults). Ulyss then competed at the Longines Deauville Classic (1 fault in the Grand Prix) then followed this with the 5* CSI at Gijon (Spain) where he took part in his first Nations’ Cup. He passed this test with flying colours, contributing to the placing of the Belgian team. At ease in the two rounds over 1.60m, he proved to Peter Weinberg (the team manager, who was there at Gijon) that he well deserved his selection.

In 2019, after a few smaller placings, Ulyss was 4th in the Grand Prix at Bonheiden (over 1m50) in April, and then 3rd in the 1m50 qualifying class at Maubeuge in May. Following this he jumped magnificently in the 1m55 Grand Prix at the International at Bourg en Bresse, but was penalised with 4 faults for a small mistake behind.


His first real breeding year was the summer of 2015. Before that a single foal was born in 2013, one in 2014 and one in 2015. In 2016, he covered 23 mares plus some overseas and in 2017, 50 mares in France and a few others all over Europe.
