At the age of eight, he has already won a series of competitions in international Grand Prix arenas and came fourth in the World Cup Freestyle in Vilhelmsborg/DEN - with a score of over 80 percent! With his rider Andreas Helgstrand, Jovian continues where he left off as a celebrated young horse: namely at the top of the rankings! World Champion of the five-year-old dressage horses (four out of the five criteria were marked 10). World Champion of the seven-year-olds (with 95.2 percent). And it was probably only due to the cancellation of the 2020 Championships due to the coronavirus pandemic that Jovian was not able to defend his title in the six-year-old class as well and thus complete the coveted World Championship title triple.

In 2017, Jovian won the three-year-old Dutch Championships. In 2018, he won his sport test in Verden with a score of 9.01. He was also named premium stallion at the Danish licensing and secured silver at the Dutch Pavo Cup. In 2019, as well as his gold medal at the World Championships, he also won the silver medal at the Danish Championships.

With his first foals, Jovian is on everyone’s lips: Slangerupgaards Josefine was the top price of the Danish Elite Foal Auction, with a knockdown price of 72,000 euros. At the Danish Foal Championships, Jubilee accessed the finals of the fillies. At the German Foal Championships in Lienen, Jovian produced two finalists. Six of his sons from his first crops of stallions were licensed, four of whom were named premium stallions, including our stallion Just Diamond.

His sire Apache was the KWPN Reserve Champion in 's-Hertogenbosch/NED and outstanding winner of the stallion competition in winter 2011/12. Ridden by Emmelie Scholtens, Apache joined the Dutch Olympic squad in 2015. In 2018, he was part of the Dutch team placed fifth at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon/USA. The following year, he came eighth in the World Cup final in Gothenburg/SWE. 2019 was also the year in which this undoubtedly highly sought-after stallion unexpectedly passed away. He has produced over 45 licensed stallions, amongst whom the champion producer stallion Kastel's Grand Galaxy Win particularly stands out. His sport offspring are led by the Olympic individual and team bronze medallist Gio, ridden by Charlotte Dujardin/GBR.

His dam Zinith was herself placed in tests for young riding horses before she started breeding. She produced Jovian’s full sister, Idol, who produced the licensed stallion Toto Gold/Nice Boy (by Toto Jr.). Zinith also produced Friend (by Rousseau), who was successful up to Inter I, and was especially distinguished as an Elite Dressage Mare by the KWPN. Zinith is the half sister of the "ster" mare Upshot (by Olivi), who produced the licensed stallion Astrix (by Obelisk), who won the World Championships for young dressage horses in 2010 and 2011 with Emmelie Scholtens/NED and has had further successes at high level.

His grand-sire Tango, by Jazz, is the full brother of Diederik van Silfhout's/NED Grand Prix horse Bonzanjo and was himself successful at high level with Hans Peter Minderhoud/NED. Two of his sons, Zardando and Zizi Top, were licensed.

With the first-class stallion Landjonker (alias Frühling), the Nimmerdor son Aram and the top sire Lucky Boy xx, Jovian's pedigree is full of performance genetics.
