Ulysse des Forets, the fantastic mare belonging to Steve Guerdat, has the genes of absolute sires Jalisco B, Le Tot de Semilly and Papillon Rouge in her pedigree. This mare gives us not only the best French blood but also a pedigree that is truly full of international sport horses. Ulysse herself jumped at 1.60m level and obtained various podium places at multiple 5* GP competitions, including the World Cup in Madrid and the Oslo Grand Prix in 2018. Her sister Unanime des Forets jumps at 1.55m level and the younger Vents des Forets and Electro des Forets are both at the start of a successful international career. Grandmother Grace des Forets in turn gave us the 1.60m class jumper Un Diamant des Forets and the 1.50m class jumper Vivaldi des Forets. Of course, we also recognise the ‘des Forets’ pedigree from being the same pedigree as that of the legendary Zirocco Blue, who was born under the name Quamikase des Forets.

Steve Guerdat talks about Ulysse with the utmost respect: “Ulysse is a fantastic mare. When in the ring, she knew exactly what to do in each moment. She was extremely careful and had a huge heart. She was always willing to fight for me and had a very competitive spirit. I am convinced that I would never have become the world’s number one if it hadn’t been for Ulysse...I am not a breeder but if her descendants were to inherit only 50% of her mentality, they will undoubtedly become true superstars!”
