This wonderful horse is a full brother to the multiple National and International winner, Dassett Choice, who we sold to America several years ago.
JJ is such a smart model, who is remarkably balanced, organised and mature for his age, and one we expect very big things from during his career.
Despite having very little mileage before 2019, JJ takes all training in his stride and has the most exceptional attitude. In fact, his nickname is “Mr Perfect Pants” around the yard! JJ has impressive results at BE100, gaining multiple top 3 places at his first few BE events and BYEH qualifiers, qualifying him for the National 5YO Championships, where he finished a brilliant 5th place last autumn. JJ also effortlessly stepped up to Novice level during the same summer. Having placed in the top 3 in both of his events this year before the 2020 Covid-19 restrictions came into place, JJ consolidated on his Novice form for the rest of the season, despite having quite the late growth spurt.
JJ has been given some time to develop over the winter, and is getting ready to start competing once Kate is back in action from having her second baby early this spring. This horse may need some time to truly strengthen and finish up, but we all have very high hopes for him once he does so.
