GT Jake presents in a perfect frame. He has tremendous scope, spectacular elevation of the forehand and is a movement magician. Jake showed huge potential under saddle, but sadly due to a breeding injury his career was cut short.  

Jake stood 3 seasons in Australia before being exported to New Zealand in 2010.  

At his license testing GT Jake was awarded Merit withthe following marks:

Conformation 80% 
Movement 83% 
Jump 75%
The visiting German assessor Gerd Kust gave GT Jake the following statement:  

" A stallion always uphill in his movement and with upward construction. A very long well set neck. Good strong well defined joints. Elastic with much ground covering in walk and trot and lovely uphill canter.  Good technique jumping and enough scope." 

In the next two NZWB Classification tours following his own licensing, Jake could also proudly boast that he was one of the most successful sires with his offspring being awarded reserve champion (2016) and the 2 highest scoring foals in 2015. 

Uphill progeny with unlimited promise

We are finding he is a stallion that strongly stamps his offspring, it is always very easy to pick a Jake baby as they have his lovely head, uphill look, stunning movement and kind natures.
His eldest NZ progeny, are now turning 4 and are showing huge amount of talent in both Jumping and Dressage, already he has had progeny sold off shore to pursue a competition career.

What the Breeders are saying...

“When considering young horses to make up my future team of dressage mounts, I couldn’t go past progeny of GT Jake and Royston Rockstar. The bloodlines of these two stallions have been my favourite in New Zealand for some time, so much so that when the opportunity arose to select a weanling, I ended up with 3, with another GT Jake foal expected from my broodmare in January! I fully believe that these horses not only have the movement to be successful at FEI level, but from the handling that we have already done also have the temperament and brains to match. I am thoroughly looking forward to what the future holds for my GT Jake and Royston Rockstar team.” Catherine West FEI dressage rider

“We are thrilled with our GT Jake filly she is feminine elegant uphill and moves with those qualities and lightness that we dreamed of – lucky us and one more on the way :))) we will definitely be using GT Jake again.” Debbie Barke



First Son of the Legendary Stallion Jazz

We believe Jake is the first son of the number 1 dressage stallion in the world and the first Jazz son ever to stand in New Zealand. 

Jazz, named dressage sire of the decade., was performance tested in 1994. He was described as honest, reliable, temperamental, likes to look at everything. Very willing to work and works well. The walk is easy with a long stride. He carries himself well in the trot, has very good use of the foreleg and has sufficient power.  He has a great deal of talent for dressage and gives his rider a good feeling.

His scores were well above average with an 8 for his walk, an impressive 9.5 for his trot 8.5 for his canter with three 9’s for trainability, stable behavior and overall training.

By the age of thirteen Jazz was trained and competed at Grand Prix level by Tineke Bartels. The pair were a member of the Dutch team at the 2002 World Equestrian Games winning also the CDI in Eindhoven.

In January 2005 Broere Jazz returned to the competition ring with Broere’s leading rider Kirsten Beckers at the national dressage show in Boxtel, the Netherlands to win the Grand Prix with 70.63%. KWPN in 2007. 

Two sons of Jazz in their first season at Stud both proved a popular choice with breeders with Wynton covering 636 mares and Westpoint covering 681. These young Jazz sons show tremendous aptitude as a Grand prix horses of the future.

GT Jake’s Dam Darci Argene

Darci Argene wasa daughter of the imported Oldenburg stallion Aachen.  Argene was an upstanding and athletic style of mare with 3 correct basic gaits. 

Her sire was the World Cup showjumper Aachen. Aachen was imported to Australia as a 3yo, before being exported back to Germany as a Grand Prix showjumper for a record sum.  A son of the legendary Argentinus, Aachen established himself as one of the greatest sires to be imported to Australia. In Grand Prix dressage 
Aachen sired horses the likes of Belcam Aarchon, Middleton Apollo, As-Aachen, Belcam Aamel, Glencoe Aathens and Belcam Aaramis. He also sired Belcam Aangelo and Belcam Admiral, both of which were exported to the USA as show jumpers. Aachen has also been represented at the World Equestrian Games in eventing by the likes of Belcam Aava and Belcam Aaberdeen.

German showjumper Holger Wulschner  described him as,  “A stallion with unlimited possibilities, enormous talent and careful.” 

Argene is also the mother of  by Rhodium owned by Bennet Conn and GT Oylmpus by the Jazz son Olivi exported to Asia.

Dual Purpose Bloodlines

With these fantastic blood lines GT Jake is the ideal stallion to create dual purpose horses and even has the athletic ability to suit New Zealand eventing.  Jake has an exceptional nature and is considered the teddy bear around the farm.
