Jester NZPH is a big, scopey horse for the future.

A mature type Jester is very loose and athletic free jumping. She has a beautiful back end, is careful and enjoys jumping. She has a lovely nature and some fantastic, unique bloodlines. A very interesting young horse for the future with a huge amount of potential as a competition mount and as a breeding mare.

She has a lovely temperament and is well handled.



Fuego du Prelet was a French Selle Francais stallion who competed at 1.60m showjumping and at international Nation’s Cup events. His offspring are very versatile having sired multiple World Cup jumpers as well as CCI5* eventer’s. One of his most notable progeny is Chris Chugg’s Olympic and WEG mount Vivant, whom is regarded as one of Australia’s most influential show jump mounts in modern history, and one of the best jumping stallions internationally.

Dam Lines:

His 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.


NZPH Relations:

Jesters 1/2 siblings include:

  • United Blue NZPH (mother of Cartoon NZPH, ridden by Sally Steiner).
  • Sparkles NZPH (mother of Double Shot NZPH).
  • Champagne NZPH (who jumped at Grand Prix level with Katie Laurie in AUS).


NB; Jester’s left front hoof conformation is ‘boxy’. This was considered low risk by the viewing veterinarian.
