J Vintage Jet's eldest progeny will be rising six in 2009. Already they have had much sucess in multiple equine disciplines and there is still much more to come. In their short saddle careers J Vintage Jet's first crop of foals have already experienced success in Eventing, Dressage, Showjumping and Hacking. They have also demonstrated the lovely trainable nature by proving reliable and enjoyable mounts for Pony Club riders.

Jirrima Vintage Jet currently has young stock ridden by their owner/ riders competing at Elementary dressage, 1.10m Showjumping, Pre- Novice eventing and the various elements that Pony Club expects.


'Ice' has proven performance breeding. Jet Set D speaks for himself and Detour Lass{showjumping lines) already has numerous offspring competing in dressage, eventing and showing. Unfortunately Ice was injured at 6 weeks of age and therefore will never be able to be a competition horse himself. He has been broken to saddle and like his sire demonstrated excellent tractability. He is a dual purpose performance stallion, with a lovely kind temperament. Like his sire, he is eager to learn and has remarkedly skilful action in front.

The following is an extract taken from ' International Horse Breeders' referring to Jet Set D. Jet Set D was North Holland Champion Foal and soon developed into a really top-class stallion. He completed his performance test in Ermelo as the best all-rounder in many years and was particularly appreciated for his temperament and athletic action.He was given seven scores of 9 in movement and two scores of 7.5 in jumping. This was what was said in the evaluation at the test:

"Jet Set Dis a royally developed, true riding-type, long lined stallion that shows a lot of nobility and confidence. He has an honest, reliable and steady temperament and is a very willing worker. The walk is active and roomy. He has a plentiful and powerful trot in which he displays alot of presence. His canter shows good scope and elevation."

Jet Set D is a pleasant ride over fences, with a powerful jump, skilful technique and good use of the back. He won the A-Showjumping in s'Hertogenbosch in 1995/96 ridden by Faan Pompen and herewith became Champion of the Stallion Competition in 1995. One of his foals Oxiet, was Champion Foal at the colt selection and Champion of Champions at Arnhem.

Jet Set D is also the sire of the following successful performance horses in Europe: Mrs A, Otina, Jetstream, Orlando, On Top, Troubador, Navratilova, Oxiet, Jet Stream W. Here in Australia Jetsetter B was Champion Jumping with the Stars 6 yr old, while Pasa Doble was Champion 6yr old at DWTS.

Escanaan, Jet Set D's dam, is a mare with a fine reputation with success as an in-hand show horse, 3 times selected for the National Broodmare Show. Escanaan's first foal was sold for the record price of NLG 28 000. While other progeny have been National Ch at the Nth Holland Show, Ch at National Foal Selection and International Showjumpers.

Detour Lass goes back to Precipitation, Bay Ronald and Blue Peter (all strong TB showjumping lines) and has produced dressage, showjumping and eventing progeny. Right of Way currently training two time changes, piaffe and passage. Quest for Dreams competed Pre-Novice eventing before retiring to stud, and producing Yabba Dabba Doo, while J Unbelievable (7yo) currently competing 1m/ D grade showjumping and Prelim eventing.
