Jaguar van Paemel was imported to the United States at the age of 10, by which time he already had approximately 75 foals in Europe. Jaguar is prepotent and stamps his get with a great temperament, work ethic, and soundness. His oldest foals are starting their competition careers, with one of them named ” Otis Blue” winning the 6-year-old circuit championship at Wellington in 2020, as well as the Eastern European 6-year-old Jumper Championship. He has a son in Mexico who has shown with success already as a 6-year-old in 1.30 division there, a son named Jet Set van Paemel approved as a stallion in Belgium ( BWP,) as well as a son approved for breeding in Denmark. Click here for photos and video of his offspring. His first US-bred foals were born in 2020.
Out of two test-breedings that were made, each mare took on the first try and each delivered a healthy perfect colt. One is named “U.S.A. Jaguar” and is owned by Russell and Jenny Morgan of Spirit Equestrian, and the other ” Ukai Jaguar ” is owned by top junior jumper rider, Maud Christal. Jaguar puts his stamp on every foal. Both of his 2020 colts are going grey:
Jaguar van Paemel is an excellent choice for breeding, whether you want to produce a show jumper, a hunter, a dressage horse, or an eventer. His career has been in jumpers, but his smooth and scopey style – passed on to his offspring – will make excellent Hunter Derby prospects as well. We are excited by the potential of his movement for dressage, and we believe his offspring would have the versatility and stamina to make fantastic event horses. 2020 was Jaguar’s first year at stud in America and there are over two dozen American mares now expecting his foals in 2021. 98% of all mares that were bred to him showed foal heartbeats in utero. There was no difference in success rates in mares who used fresh semen to mares who used frozen. One mare lost her foal due to the conception of twins, and another had a vet that falsely reported that the mare did not have a cervix at first, but this mare is now with a different vet and planning on being bred again in 2021. ~ The owners of Jaguar van Paemel like to see all mare owners succeed, and have done so in Alabama, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Washington, Florida, California, Virginia, New Jersey and hope to see more pregancies this spring from semen sold to mare owners in Colorado, Wyoming, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and Mexico.
Jaguar van Paemel Stud Fees 2021
Although the stud fees in Jaguar’s introductory year were half as much as they are now, we emphasize that mare owners raved about the semen motility, whether it was frozen or fresh ! The owner of Talin Farm in New Jersey has two Jaguar babies expected in 2021, and he likened Jaguar’s thawed out frozen semen to ” rocket fuel !”
- $4000 for fresh cooled semen: Payment will be due up front to Geraldine Bidwell. This fee provides his transport to and from the clinic, for his private handler to wait for him during each collection, Alamo Pintado’s top rated semen collection, handling, packing and the Fed Ex shipping fees. ) ~ The only fee that the mare owner needs to take care of is the fully refundable deposit of the Equintaner should the mare owner choose to not ship in a paper box. Everything else will be included in the $4000 fee.
- $1000 per dose for frozen semen. (Eight straws per dose.) Complete payment due to Geraldine Bidwell before being green lighted for shipping from Alamo Pintado Clinic.
- Special discounts are available for Hunter Derby, Grand Prix mares, and also to all mares who breed back to Jaguar who can show that they have used the word ” Jaguar” somewhere in their previous foal’s registration paper name.
- All shipping details and costs for frozen semen are handled by The Alamo Pintado Equine Medical Center in California directly with them; Contact Dr. Ed Hamer at 805-688-6510 for more information. The clinic uses Fed Ex typically, and buyers of semen can insure the Equitaner contents to guarantee a proper delivery of their semen. Or, they can choose to have the semen picked with their own container at the clinic.
- The Santa Lucia Farm is a full service breeding and foaling facility, which also offers excellent work. Fernando Canales and Kiley Williams have had great results with getting a half dozen mares in foal to Jaguar at their special place in the Santa Ynez Valley. Fernando checks mares at 2 am during breeding season and on weekends and makes it a point of priode that he never misses a follicle ! His team oversaw the successful foaling of both maiden mares who were brought to Jaguar in 2020 for semen efficiency tests. Both of those mares have gorgeous foals. So, for a stem to stern process, you may contact them for details at 805-688-3673

Jaguar’s health is solid evidence of his good genes: In Europe he competed in more than 100 FEI jumper classes, but he flexes perfectly and is correct in every way.
” We actually didn’t have Jaguar vetted before we bought him. We knew the family of Stoeterij Paemel, and we trusted them a hundred percent,” said Geri Bidwell. “If we had not wanted to keep Jaguar, or if — for any reason — it did not seem like he was a fit on our farm — then they would have let us put him on a plane back to Belgium.”
Jaguar arrived sound, and initial x-rays by Dr Steve Goss, showed “perfect joints.” (The films were then sent to a second Board-certified radiologist for his opinion as well.)
Next, Jaguar was thoroughly vetted by Dr Mark Rick of the Alamo Pintado Equine Medical Center. “We are pleased to say that the report is excellent.” Click here to view the summary letter from Dr. Mark Rick. Jaguar’s x-rays are available upon request. His tendons and ligaments look good. He has great feet, with nice cups underneath them. His neck and spine are flexible, with excellent spacing between all of his vertebrae.
The only surprise we found was a bad tooth ! An X-ray of Jaguar’s jaw did reveal one subsurface wolf tooth in the left side of his mouth. The dentist said it was easy to miss because nothing had come through the gumline. “It may have conflicted with the bit when riders pulled back on Jaguar’s reins to shorten his stride,” said Geri Bidwell. The tooth was removed.
Congratulations to Jenny & Russell Morgan on their elegant son of Jaguar, and then rebreeding for a 2021 foal ! Their 2020 baby is pictured below :
Some Breeding FAQs about Jaguar
These questions were asked of Jaguar’s breeder in Belgium, Luc van Eeckhoudt and Karin Verdeyen of Stoeterij Paemel. They also bred his sire Cicero Z van Paemel. We thought their informed responses might be helpful to others.
