On 22 January 2013, Alter saw the birth of Ijaque. As it happened with practically every Portuguese School of Equestrian Art horse, when he turned four, his excellent characteristics ensured his selection and his subsequent nomination to compete in the demanding “Court Games”. He is the son of Jacaré II and Unitiva II. He has nine brothers at the School, six on his father’s side - Queijo, Que Jago, Quejal, Cajabel, Cajado and Hojival – and three on that of his mother - Barão, Favorito and Jeremias. Perhaps due to his age, Ijaque is very rebellious, only does what he wants and likes to contradict expectations.
