The two-time dressage horse world champion"The Emperor!" - is how the judges dubbed the old and new dressage horse world champion Jovian at the dressage horse world championships. Already a five-year-old, this one was in a league of his own (four of the five traits were rated 10). And in the seven-year-old class, too, no one could hold a candle to him under his trainer Andreas Helgstrand/DEN. The trot swinging, sublime, full of power and with enormous freedom of the shoulders: 10. The walk regulated with good overfooting: 8.0. The canter jumped to the maximum uphill: 9.8. The permeability also in the expressive traversals, flying changes and pirouettes almost perfect: 9.8. And the perspective hardly to describe: 10. "What a horse!" Thus 95.2 percent. And also in the execution of the lessons, Jovian was almost eight percentage points ahead of the competition with 83.143 percent.

In 2020, Jovian was also in the World Cup lineup of his breeding home, the Netherlands. However, due to the Corona pandemic-related cancellation of the championship, he was unable to defend his title in the six-year-old division. 

In 2017, Jovian won the Dutch three-year-old riding horse championship. In 2018, he won his sport test in Verden with a score of 9.01, was singled out as a premium stallion at the Danish licensing and secured silver in the Dutch Pavo Cup. In 2019, following his World Cup gold win, he added silver at the Danish Championships.

Jovian is also the talk of the town with his foals: Slangerupgaards Josefine was the 72,000 euro top-priced horse at the Danish Elite Foal Auction. Jubilee went to the filly final ring at the Danish Foal Championships At the German Foal Championships in Lienen, Jovian provided two finalists. Several sons were licensed from his first crop of stallions, including our premium stallion Joshua.The sire Apache was KWPN reserve champion in 's-Hertogenbosch/NED and superior winner at the stallion competition in winter 2011/12. Under his trainer Emmelie Scholtens, Apache was called to the Dutch Olympic squad in 2015. In 2018, he was part of the fifth-placed Dutch team at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon/USA. The following year, he finished eighth in the World Cup Final in Gothenburg/SWE. However, 2019 was also the year in which this undoubtedly highly sought-after stallion unexpectedly died. From the bevy of his more than 45 licensed sons, the champion maker Kastel's Grand Galaxy Win still stands out. His sporting offspring are led by the Olympic individual and team bronze medalist Gio under Charlotte Dujardin/GBR.The dam, Zinith, was herself placed in tests for young riding horses before she was bred, sired Friend (by Rousseau), who was successful up to Intermediate I, and received a special award from the KWPN as an elite dressage mare. Zinith is a half-sister to 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 under Emmelie Scholtens/NED and was also successful in advanced level dressage.The grandfather Tango, who is by Jazz, is a full brother to Diederik van Silfhout's/NED Grand Prix horse Bonzanjo and was himself successful in the big arena under Hans Peter Minderhoud/NED. Two of his sons, Zardando and Zizi Top, were licensed.

The pedigree of Jovian is saturated with performance genetics via the first-class bred Landjonker (aka Frühling), the Nimmerdor son Aram and the top sire Lucky Boy xx.
