uiet, intelligent, kind and trainable describe the disposition of Jaks Artifacts.Handsome, well balanced, elegant, strong and short backed, with solidly built hooves and bone describe his conformation. Long, low strides with plenty of suspension describe his trot. He rocks back with tremendous impulsion in his hock when he canters. He is light on his feet with proper cadence and rhythm.
His dam, Jaks, was imported to the United States from New Zealand as a show hunter. We purchased her when she was 9 years old and still showing. Jaks is a 17.1 + hand dark brown Thoroughbred with a long neck, short back, very correct conformation, great bone and solid well balanced hooves. She has that daisy cutter stride. At the trot, she has the float we all want and she has the nicest rocked back canter we have ever seen in a Thoroughbred. She was 100% sound, including clean x-rays, when we purchased her and she still is today. Captain Jason, the sire of Jaks, was a dark brown 17+ hand New Zealand Thoroughbred that sired successful hunters and distance runners.
Jaks Artifacts’ sire, Indian Artifacts, is a 17.2 hand dark brown AQHA Hunter under saddle World Champion and a Congress Champion and World Champion sire. His sire is the famous Artful Move who is a World Champion, World Champion sire and leading sire of English horses.
