Jatsar Equestrian has limited openings for outside mares this season and already has tentative bookings in place. will also be covering Jatsar Equestrian stud mares, who have been selected from top JK Holsteiner bloodlines to produce quality performance horses for all levels.  

We provide A.I. only and currently work with Dave and Mark from Kumeu Veterinary Practice, who have provided a great breeding package for mare owners.

Rocher has been purpose breed for several different fields.


1. Bred over quality TB mares to produce top A&P show hacks and show hunters.

2. Bred over quality TB and WB mares to produce top international calibre eventers.

3. Bred over quality TB and WB mares to produce top level show jumpers.

4. Bred over quality pure WB mares to produce your future dressage star.

5. Bred over cross bred mares to produce an excellent general riding horse.

Rocher's dark bay colouring with white socks and blaze is very strong in his blood lines on both sides of the family tree.

Rocher has an impeccable temperament being curious and confident with a compact frame, good length of leg and of course great colouring. has already shown a great aptitude for jumping by clearing his 1.3m high paddock fence as a yearling several times in his winter cover. He has also been shown extensively in-hand at A&P level and won many large sashes.

Rocher is destined for a career firstly in showing and dressage then when matured he will be show jumped and evented.

Rocher is a rising 3yr old 16hh registered Holsteiner (estimated finished height 16.3 - 17.0hh) and has been classified by principle Classifier Herr Hanno Koehncke from Schleswig-Holstein who scored him top equal in his class with the overall top mark for movement. is out of a top Holsteiner classified 16hh TB mare Caithness Fleur du Marquis (pictured left) by the well known 16.1hh classical TB sire Dorchester, who has produced many top level show hacks and hails from a prestigious turf one racing family. Fleur has done very well showing at A&P level and is now starting a career in show jumping. sire is Ramazotti (pictured left) who was a 17.1hh stunningly beautiful bay stallion (now deceased) of impeccable pedigree. He was an impressive modern type with long legs and fantastic movement. He competed in the Netherlands up to Prix St George level dressage and was training Grand Prix movements with one of the top Dutch riders until an injury whilst jumping ended his competition career.

Ramazotti was the result of crossing the Kuer Preferent mare Bilithya to the tremendously popular G. Ramiro (later known as Ramiro Z).  Bilithya herself was the product of the famous cross of Joost and Abgar XX.  Thus Ramazotti’s pedigree reads like a who’s who of famous Dutch lines:  Ramiro/Joost/Abgar. Z was one of the most successful breeders of show jumpers the world has ever seen and was known as the “King of Sires” and also dubbed “Stallion of the Century”.  He produced many notable international show jumpers including Ramiro’s Girl, Donau, Rodney, and the Gold Medal winning mare Ratina Z.  He also sired Grand Prix dressage stars like Rio Negro, Rampal and Lectron.

Rocher has strengths in show jumping as well as dressage and is classically beautiful so would benefit the showing scene with a bit of warmblood input. He is a very versatile stallion who will be a great asset for the New Zealand market.

The stud/service fee is $1300 + GST with a LFG, A.I only, chilled semen shipped nationwide. 

(3 June 2011 - Rocher will be backed over winter)
