Jeff the Chef W was purchased by Boyd and Ross Martin back in 2002 at the Dressage with the Stars Australian Young Horse Championships auction which was strategically placed on Saturday night.

Jeff2013smallThe breeder and then owner, Mr. Health Ryan, was holding a foal auction which was not going very well for sales. After one too many lemonades, Boyd and his father Ross were trying to help Heath in getting the prices of the horses closer to the reserved prices. Before they knew it, they were stuck with the purchase of one gangly looking chestnut gelding by Jive Magic. Jive Magic is a Dutch Warmblood who is by the Grand Prix Dressage sire Jazz. Jeff’s mother was also a Dutch Warmblood by the imported stallion Salute.

Jeff has consistently shown exceptional promise, placing third in the Australian Young Horse Dressage Championships in Melbourne. In the beginning of 2007, Jeff boarded a flight from Sydney to New York, and eventually landed in his new home in Pennsylvania.

Jeff’s Dressage career in America has been with great success, winning and placing at nearly every outing, competing up to the fourth level with Silva and debut at Prix St. Georges at the end of 2008, then progressing his training all the way to Grand Prix.

Jeff is a big horse with a big heart. He has been successful in the small tour with Silva and has placed highly in the Grand Prix under Michael Barisone in Wellington last season.

This horse is the perfect horse for a tall rider who wants to get into the big ring right away!
