This wonderful horse is a full brother to the multiple National and International winner, Dassett Choice, who we sold to America several years ago.

Despite having very little mileage as a 4 year old, JJ and Amelia had impressive results at BE100 in 2019, gaining multiple top 3 places at BE events and BYEH qualifiers, qualifying him for the National 5YO Championships where they finished a brilliant 5th place! In 2020, JJ and Amelia consolidated on their Novice mileage, despite having quite a late growth spurt. JJ was been given time to develop as a rising 7yo, and Kate took over the reins after her maternity leave in the spring of 2021. The new combination enjoyed a successful return to competition with multiple Novice placing and an impressive double clear around their first Intermediate in the summer. They had a great trip up to Blair L2* and made absolutely nothing of their first 3* at the National 7YO Championships in October.

Lesley, Kate’s mum, has always loved JJ over the winter she purchased him for herself, meaning JJ will be with team Dassett for the foreseeable future! JJ will need careful producing through 2022, but has a very exciting year ahead, with a spring CCI-L3* on the cards before turning his sights towards Blenheim Palace’s Young Horse Championships.

JJ is an incredibly powerful jumper who needs to learn to contain his exuberance (especially on the cross country!!), but once this is achieved, he is surely going to be one of the most exciting horses around.
