Athens Mumbo Jumbo
Date of birth
12 March 2005
Athens Fancy That
Jumbo is a striking chap who stands at approximately 17hh. His sire (Graf Fenmaster) is a PSG dressage horse and his grand sire (Graf Magna) was a top class grade A show jumper.
He has shown huge potential under saddle, not only in the dressage arena but he is showing athleticism and talent over a fence. He has super natural balance and rhythm, he is bold and quick thinking - even for a big horse. He carries a good amount of bone and is well put together for a big horse. He will be well suited for the TB type mares and is sure to produce offspring destined for competitive careers.
2009 showed a very sucessful first year for his progeny proving themselves at the BEF gradings -Reserve Champion Eventer Foal at Arena UK and at Equifest winning the Hunter Breeding Foal class.
In 2012 Jumbo showed his jumping talent by being extremley successful on the BSJA circuit. Currently jumping in Foxhunter classes and producing many placings and double clears
Due to the retirement from stud of Graf Fenmaster we are very excited to have the only entire with these bloodlines in the UK. We have high hope and aspirations for this young, talented horse. To watch him working under saddle in the arena proves we have a worthy replacement for such an amazing sire.
In August 2012 Athens Mumbo Jumbo was inspected by the AES and is now a licensed stallion with them.
2013 saw Jumbo embark on a career change to eventing. He has had some successful runs out at BE100 and then moved on to novice level later in the season. He has had a few quiet years due to the arrival of children but during this time his progeny have begun to settle into ridden work. There have been some nice results in the show ring both in hand and under saddle and one of our home bred fillies will make her eventing debut this year. His stock tend to be tall and benefit from time but all have proven trainable and versatile.
