Murka’s Gem is the clone of Gem Twist who is recognized the world over as one of the best show jumpers of all time. Gem Twist, a gelding, was unable to pass on his genes through breeding. Murka’s Gem is the identical reincarnation of the original Gem Twist. He has joined Team Murka’s Breeding programme to bring back a magnificent blood line to modern breeding. After a trial breeding programme, Murka’s Gem is now publicly available through Stallion AI Services for anyone looking to breed a serious sports horse: show jumper or eventer.
Gem Twist is the only horse to have won the “American Grand Prix Association Horse of the Year” title three times. He did this under three different riders, two of whom he also carried to “Rookie of the Year” titles. Described by all his riders, “As the absolute horse of a life time,” he also won two (2) Olympic silver medals in 1988 at the Seoul Olympics, the “World’s Best Horse” title at the 1990 Stockholm World Equestrian Games, plus numerous major Grand Prix titles. In 2002, Gem Twist was inducted into the United States “Showing Jumping Hall of Fame”.
Murka’s Gem has excellent conformation and is identical in all respects to the original Gem Twist, except one. He is a stallion. Registered with the Anglo European Studbook, he already has his first crop of twenty six foals on the ground. He knows what it is all about and is very eager to have more.
The original Gem Twist, a wonderful grey thoroughbred, was an incredible show jumper who combined a spectacular show jumping style with great scope and brilliant speed. Murka’s Gem carries his thoroughbred genes that have proven their worth in show jumping with three generations performing at the top level: Gem Twist, Good Twist and Bonne Nuit. Like the original Gem Twist, Murka’s Gem is very correct in front when jumping and very quick to learn. He too has the same determination never to touch a fence.
Gem Twist, a proven jumping performer, is available for breeding through his clone Murka’s Gem. For the many breeders who are looking to diversify their blood lines and for a thoroughbred stallion to bring more blood into their genetic pool, Murka’s Gem is an ideal choice. He is a very exciting prospect for anyone looking to gain access to an amazing gene pool to breed a serious show jumper.
He has only recently started his jumping education as he has been given time to mature and as such what you can see here today is only a glimpse of this horse’s potential following a few weeks of basic training.
He is a naturally careful and fluent jumper, showing great scope and excellent technique over a fence.
His fresh and chilled semen, live foal guaranteed, is available throughout the UK and Europe and his frozen semen is available worldwide.
