Java NZPH is a strong type with great potential.

Java has good paces including a fantastic, balanced canter. He finds free jumping effortless and is showing all the right attributes for a future jumper. He has a great brain being bold, genuine and very easy going. Java is the perfect young horse for any level rider to produce and develop for showjumping.



Cicave du Talus transmits quality framework and bone to his foals. His accomplishments in 2019 with Francois-Xavier Boudant at age seven include: 2nd place GP Notre Dame d’Estrees; 5th place GP CSI2* Auvers; 5th place in second qualifier for World Breeding Championships for Young Horses. He not only gained the title of Vice-Champion of four-year-olds at the 2016 French Championships, he also won the Selle Français Masters the same year. He was ranked third in the French Championship for five-year-olds with 17 out of 19 clear rounds. His strength, respect for the course, scope, and carefulness make him a very promising sport horse.

Cicave’s first crop of foals have inherited his robustness in build and good character. He descends from a damline that has produced many great champions, while his grandsire Quick Star is decorated with numerous wins and placings at the Grand Prix level.

Dam Lines:

His dam’s dam is one of NZPH’s foundation broodmare, the imported French mare Mariette. Mariette is sired by Olympic and World Championship show jumper Quat’sous. He competed repeatedly in Nation Cups, CSIO and was a recurring member of the French Showjumping team. He is a well-confirmed stud who transmits his distinction, athleticism, three beautiful gaits, and showjumping skill to his offspring. Quat’Sous has a very good mind that he is renown for passing onto the next generation. After producing a dozen of major winners indexed 150 or more by the Selle Francais studbook, he now stands out as a remarkable producer of dams.
