The 10-year-old gelding Cayman Jolly Jumper (Hickstead x Quaprice Boimargot Quincy) arrived at Simon Delestre's stables at the end of 2021, and has since then performed at the highest level with the French former world number one in the saddle. From their podiums in the Nations Cups of La Baule and Rotterdam, through to the victory in Rome, the duo has quickly become one of the pillars of the French showjumping team.

To secure Cayman Jolly Jumper for Delestre, H-Jumping has now invested in the gelding – with the aim to be able to compete in major championships and to maintain a high level on the world ranking. H-Jumping becomes the gelding’s majority owner and will also manage his sports career, while Berthol Agriculture remains a minority co-owner.

“The opportunity to add Cayman to the H-Jumping pool came a few weeks ago,” Nicholas Hochstadter from H-Jumping commented in a press release. “After discussions with Simon, my daughter Jennifer and I decided to invest in this fabulous horse under H-Jumping conditions. As a reminder, the objective of the company is to develop, manage and eventually sell horses with high potential by clearly aligning the interests of all parties. We have therefore put black on white our common objectives with Philippe and we are delighted to manage the future of this horse.”

“Cayman is an exceptional horse, one of the best I have ridden in my career,” Simon Delestre said in the press release. “It's really good that H-Jumping can secure the horse for the Olympic Games in Paris. We have been working in confidence for a number of years and the objectives have always been respected.”

"It's a great story,” Philippe Berthol added. “Cayman Jolly Jumper is one of the best things that's happened to me in a long time. It is a very beautiful adventure that we are starting together with Simon Delestre – an excellent rider – and Nicholas Hochstadter, a very good manager and horse dealer. The common goal will of course be the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024.”
