Quinine CH 1991Quinine Was Very Much The Queen Of Our Herd And The Foundation Mare Of Our Breeding Program

Born and Bred in Les Charbonnieres, La Valley De Joux Switzerland and seen at just a few days of age, we had no idea then that she would become the foundation of our breeding program based here in Scotland some 25 years later, nor that our stallions, foals and youngstock would attract attention at an International level.

Aged three she obtained the required marks to gain entry to the 100 day mare performance testing at Le Haras National Bern in Switzerland.

As a five year old she completed her ridden sport performance test and was branded with the Swiss Flag as a mark of quality.

Imported from Switzerland in 1998 when we reloacted to Scotland Quinine was graded into the head stud book with SHB (GB) and the Scottish Sports Horse, successfully completing her IBOP mare performance test with 81 points.

In 1999 she commenced her career on the BSJA circuit competing with great success, jumping consistantly with 40 double clears and placings in the space of only a few months and often winner in classes of over 80 to 100 horses.

In her first season in 1999 she qualified for the British Novice and Discovery finals winning the second round with the only triple clear at Lough Farm in the British Novice, placing 3rd in the British Novice Preliminary Round At the Festival Of Show Jumping Scope. By the end of her first season she was jumping Foxhunter classes and opens. Her ability to turn sharp and jump from a stand still often proved her unbeatable and very much a mare to be reckoned with when she was on form.

In the same year Quinine won the seven year old and over Scottish Sports Horse Championship at the SSH summer show a combination of show jumping and dressage results. At the same show she was winner of the intermediate and Open Show jumping and was presented for her IBOP mare performance test achieving the second highest score of 81 points to date in the UK under the careful eye of KWPN representative Jaques Verkerk with an impressive 9 for scope.

Quinine was also successfull in the dressage arena and never out of the ribbons, achieving eights for her paces regularity and rhythm.

Grand Veneur

Popular State Stud Stallion as one of France’s leading sires based on the performance of his progeny at the national championships in Fontainebleau. Sire of over 75 Selle Francais stallions and many more in Belgium and across Europe. Grand Veneur was a product of three very important French sire lines, "Amour Du Bois x Le Micoche x and Jus De Pomme by the thoroughbred sire "Orange peel", Grand Veneur;s dam, Tanagra G, (not to be confused by the Tanagra that produced Jalisco B) also produced the International jumpers "L'Elue de Veneur and O'Veneur".

Since 1976, Grand Veneur produced more than 335 show jumping winners. Regularly classed among the best sires, father of winners in show jumping, he has produced among the best: Le Tot de Semilly, Lama des Landes, Love Love de l'If, Magicien IV, Nabo II, Rocky du Carel, Tenor de la Cour, ISO 160, Vas Y Donc Longane, Alfa d'Elle and many showjumping winners in foreign countries such as Le Grand du Tot, Mont Blanc, Quatre de Mai, Sioux de Baugy, Tenor Manciais, Ulysse de Thurin, Upsala de Baussy, Valou de Baussy, Veneur Pierreville, Amour de Coquerie, As de Thurin, Beau Veneur, Belle Landaise and Billy du Lys.


An influential sire of jumping horses, and is found in the pedigrees of many top show jumpers today. Furioso was a terrible racehorse, with zero wins out of 21 starts. However, he was a fantastic sire of jumping horses. After World War II, he was purchased by the French National Stud where he was used as a breeding stallion until his death in 1968. Furioso was in the lines of 17 of the top 100 show jumping sires of the 1990's.


Did not race until he was three owing to a heel problem. Precipitation did well on the track, winning seven races including the 1937 Ascot Gold Cup (20f), King Edward VII Stakes (12f), Gratwicke Stakes and Queen's Prize (16f) for a total of £18,419. He was successful at stud, producing seven classic winning racehorses and sport horses. During his stud career, which began in 1938, he was one of the leading sires in England, and produced over 50 stakes winners.
