Jumbo has 9 graded sons in the UK. He has sired the winners of the World’s leading 4* events, Badminton, Burghley and Lexington as well as the winners of the UK’s leading 3* at Bramham and Blenheim. Over the years he has produced many advanced event horses. Among his best-known progeny are, Mr Chunky, Avebury and Headley Britannia (see Progeny below). Jumbo’s versatility is also evident, siring winning dressage horses, showjumpers and show horses; the mare Vulcanite was the 2016 Working Hunter Champion at Royal Windsor.

Jumbo was an International Advanced Eventer with many wins including the prestigious Young Horse Trophy at Lion D’Angers (France) in 1991, he is the only British bred stallion to have achieved this title. He also won the Dressage and Showjumping Championships at Blenheim. He whipped in with the Bicester Hunt and even did a Christmas pantomime with Carl Hester. As a 5 year old he won the Masterlock Potential Dressage Horse.
