  • 19 - Beaucatcher


British-based New Zealander Dan Jocelyn (45) last competed at Badminton in 2010.

Dan, who was born New South Wales Australia, runs a livery and training yard near Newbury with partner Tanya Cleverly – previously 3rd at Badminton (1993) with Watkins.

Dan is known for his partnership with Silence with who he represented New Zealand in the 2002 WEG (12th). The combination was previously selected for the 2000 Sydney Olympics but had to withdraw due to injury. With Silence, who was bred at the Mamaku stud, Dan contested four-star events for 11 seasons and after his retirement after Burghley in 2008, Silence was competed at lower level events by British team dressage rider Laura Bechtolsheimer. Dan then competed the full brothers Special Attorney and Special Advocate up to and at four-star.

He trains with British international dressage rider and judge Isobel Wessels and Luis Alvarez-Cevera. The couple has a daughter, Jaz (11). In his spare time Dan enjoys golf.

Beaucatcher is a ten-year-old British-bred thoroughbred. He is by Prospector John out of a mare by Last Tycoon acquired by Dan and Tanya as a four-year-old. Last year daughter Jaz also competed Beaucatcher in Pony Club competitions. Badminton is the first four-star for Beaucatcher.
