This stallion was described by Emile Hendrix as “the best jumping horse in the world”.
Peppermill is a very attractive stallion ridden by the legendary John Whitaker (MBE) with whom he had a hugely successful jumping career. He won the 3 year old loose jumping championship competition in Holland followed by becoming Fox Hunter champion runner up as a 6 year old in Great Britain and winning the best British Nations Cup Horse Award in his first international year as a 9 year old. This combination was part of the British team at the 2006 World Equestrian Games as well as the 2008 Olympic Games and won Team Bronze at the 2007 and the 2011 European Championships. Additionally, Peppermill’s Nations Cup record has been second to none. Most notably in 2008, Peppermill led the British team to victory at the Rome Nations Cup, where he was the only horse to jump 3 clear rounds and beat the American team in an individual third round jump off.
Peppermill is by the legendary Burggraaf who is a son of Landgraf I and out of a mare by Cor de la Bryere. His dam Litaire is by Voltaire, himself a sire of many top international show jumpers and graded stallions, such as Concorde and Kannan.
Peppermill stamps his offspring with his world-renowned jumping power, outstanding temperament and striking good looks and movement. His daughter Mill River is competing internationally with Joanne Whitaker and Lord Pepper has been successfully campaigned by Kathryn Ellison to name but a few.
