Kerrie Parker Manager of Cera Stud has bred many magnificent Performance horses already competing at the top level here in Australia and all over the world. Kerrie also possesses a lot of passion not just in breeding her top quality stock but wanting the very best of homes for them becasue they are family to her. Team Joyce are very fortunate to be able to purchase one of her most treasured babies. Her husband Richard supports her every move which creates that strong binding team producing the very best bloodstock every year. Kerrie purchased Beate while over in Europe therefore Cera Ducati arrived in Australia in utero which means in his mothers stomach.

Beate ( imp ) was placed in foal in Europe it was when she was able to fly to Australia Kerrie imported her. Beate completed her mare testing in Europe gaining 9’s for her character and trainability as well as for her freejumping ability.

Dam sire Askari topped his 100 day test, won the German Bundes champion as a 5 year old and was a successful 1.60m showjumper himself. Further back we see Carolus I who was a successful international showjumper as well (to 1.50m) and is today renowned as a top dam sire.
