Head Stud Book Hanoverian mare 2001
(1) Walt Disney, a dressage stallion , a half brother to Hanover's major sire Weltmeyer (both were sired by World Cup I). He is also a half brother to the important dressage sire Warkant I. Walt Disney has long been proven as an excellent brood mare sire, and the influence of World Cup I via the dam of a horse can't be valued high enough.
(2) World Cup I An influential Woermann son is World Cup 1 standing since 1981. He comes from a Sender/Lugano I mother, which proved a very good combination, with so far 16 sons licensed, five of them standing in Celle. These Woermann sons are producing very correct horses with very good movement. World Cup I is in third place in his age group in the national dressage horse ranking, and so far his best son is Weltmeyer.
(3) Woermann His dam Mandate is one of the few daughters of the Schelderhan Thoroughbred, Marabou xx who made prominent appearances. The damline furthermore brought forth such well-known sires as Ambassadeur (private stallion Oldenburg), Ariston (private stallion Hanover), Boredo (private stallion Westphalia), Dior (Warendorf state stallion), Döbeln (Celle state stallion), Dornheld, Firn, Jupiter, Seemann and Sempach (all Neustadt / Dosse state stallion), Gambler's Star (private stallion Hanover), Mylord (Marbach state stallion) as well as Partisan and the top sire of showjumpers Sender (both Celle state stallions).
(4) Bolero, a classic foundation stallion in the Hanoverian Verband, is one of the few sires to produce a new foundation stallion, Brentano II, along with other top stallions, Bismarck and Brentano I.
Also, three of Bolero's descendants medaled at the 2004 Olympics in Athens--Beauvalais ridden by Spain's Beatriz Ferrer-Salat, Bonaparte ridden by Germany's Heike Kemmer and Brentina ridden by American Debbie McDonald.
(5) Grande was a famous show jumping sire who produced numerous stallion sons and also had a number of international show jumping and dressage progeny. Grande produced 33 approved sons, 34 states premium mares and sent three of his showjumping progeny to the Olympic Games – Grande Giso (Holland), Grande (USA) and Gute Sitte (Belgium). His grand children seem to have been the real stars – Galapagos with Gabriella Grillo represented Germany at the 1982 World Championships, and was one of the first stars of the ‘new’ class, Freestyle Dressage to Music. Grandeur (Gralsritter) won over a million Deutschmarks in a spectacular showjumping career, and since then has proven himself as a superior sire. Grande’s son Graphit sired winners of over almost two million DM and sired one of the most important jumping stallions of them all, Grannus. The Graphit son, Grundstein was one of Germany’s leading stallions before his export to the United States. Another son, Graditz sired Isabell Werth’s Olympic and World Championship star, Garibaldi II sired the American dressage star Gifted who carried Carol Lavell to a team bronze at the 1992 Games and placed 4th individually. Garibaldi II died at the age of only 14 which was a great loss.
Grunnox (by Grunewald) was another top dressage horse, this time with Monica Theodorescu, and together they were members of the 1992 Gold Medal team in Barcelona.
KWPN, Dressage Mare - March 2009
Scanned in foal to Wonderful Van'T Zwaanenheike for 2016
This exceptional moving young stallion has already started his winning ways. Paired with the talented young rider, Christian Flamm of Hessen, Quaterback galloped away from the competition at the Bundeschampionates in 2006 with the following scores:
He started his stallion career by being named Champion of his licensing in Neustadt/Dosse in 2005.
Quaterback was the radiant Bundeschampion of the three year old riding horses in 2006 with the highest scores for his trot and canter. The test riders in Warendorf even gave him this dream score of 10.0. Prior to this test, he had won several tests for young riding horses. After the Bundeschampionates, he went on to win his 30 day test at Neustadt/Dosse with outstanding scores:
He was also the winner of his 30-day test with a final score of 9.14 in dressage, an 8.43 for jumping and an overall score of 8.88. As if it were not enough to have unbelievably dynamic movement, he was also blessed with an outstanding type.
Quaterback comes from one of the most successful mare lines of modern day. His dam Passionata is a half-sister of the unforgettable World Champion and double Bundeschampion, Poetin. Her full brothers Samba Hit I to IV put on convincing presentations at the Bundeschampionate. Samba Hit I was also a finalist in the 2006 Nürnberg Burgpokal and the sire of Samba’s Diamond who became the Champion Stallion of the licensing in Berlin-Brandenburg and Sachsen-Anhalt that same year.
Quaterback’s successful advanced (S) level sire Quaterman also participated in several Bundeschampionats and is deemed one of the best sires for passing on good movements in the new German States. The grandsire Quando-Quando (ABOVE) took 15th place at the World Championships in Aachen in 2006 under Kristy Oatley-Nist. With a pedigree geared for performance from all sides and from the famous Neustädter P family, all doors are open for Quaterback.
His pedigree is steeped in the traditions of the Brandenburgisches Landgestuet. His sire, Quaterman, was bred there and is by Quando-Quando, the excellent dressage competition stallion that Christy Oatley-Nist rides.
His career in sport and breeding has been exemplary, beginning in 1995 as a top colt at the Vechta auction, continuing to become the 1c Premium winner at the stallion approval and the undisputed winner at the stallion performance test with the highest possible score of 10 for character and willingness to perform, a score of 9.5 for rideability and a score of 9 for temperament, walk, trot and canter. Highlights in sport have been
participation in the Bundeschampionat finals for 5 and 6 year old dressage horses, 5th place at the World Championships in the class for 6 year old dressage horses as well as 5th place at the Nürnberg Burgpokal 2003, prior to which he won the VTV Dressage Stallion of the Year Award. With first places in international Grand Prix in 2004 and winning World Cup B finals in Dortmund , he was then nominated for the Olympic Games in Athens.
He is by the significant stallion, Quattro (RIGHT), whose bloodlines speak of great jumpers, yet also super movers with power and suspension. Quattro, himself, excelled in dressage, yet showed talent over fences. And well he should, being by Qredo de Paulstro. That sire line goes back to French blood through Galoubet, Alme, Z, Ibrahim, Furioso xx.
A French stallion with an outstanding performance record and off-spring to prove his qualities as a sire. With a score of more than 130, he finished his performance test in Medingen on 2 nd place. In 1994 he became the Reserve Champion Stallion at the Oldenburg approval. In the meanwhile he has been successful internationally at shows in Caen (FRA), Leeuwarden (NL), Berlin, Munich, Geneva (CH) and Moscow. Along with many State Premium mares, he has also sired 13 licensed sons so far and has supplied jumpers as well as dressage horses in series that have reached top international level, particularly Oliver Q under Ryuichi Obata for Japan at the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004.
Quaterman, himself, has been a very good sire and competition horse, having qualified for the Finals of the Bundeschampionates in 2003, 2004 and 2005.
The dam line of Quaterback is a very well known and respected mare line in Brandenburg. His dam “Passionata” is by the Beach Boy son , “Brandenburger”, who made his performance
as a jumper.
Brandenburger That sire line (Beach Boy) goes again to French blood through the stallion Zeus. On Brandenburger’s dam line comes the excellent Hanoverian stallin Wendekreis, admired for the excellent riding horses he produced.
Quaterback’s grand-dam is the famous mare Poesie by Brentano II. Poesie is best known for her Sandro Hit daughter, Poetin, and also the Sandro Hit sons, Samba Hits I, II, III and IV.
The list of accomplishments of these offspring is tremendous. So, in Quaterback, we have depth of pedigree of athletic, multi-talented individuals. Quaterback comes from one of the most successful mare lines of modern day. His dam Passionata is a half-sister of the unforgettable World Champion and double Bundeschampion, Poetin. Her full brothers Samba Hit I to IV put on convincing presentations at the Bundeschampionate. Samba Hit I was also a finalist in the 2006 Nürnberg Burgpokal and the sire of Samba’s Diamond who became the Champion Stallion of the licensing in Berlin-Brandenburg and Sachsen-Anhalt that same year. Quaterback’s successful advanced (S) level sire Quaterman also participated in several Bundeschampionats and is deemed one of the best sires for passing on good movements in the new German States. The grandsire Quando-Quando took 15th place at the World Championships in Aachen in 2006 under Kristy Oatley-Nist. With a pedigree geared for performance from all sides and from the famous Neustädter P family, all doors are open for Quaterback. His off-spring are very popular because of their modern, noble looks, outstanding rideability and strong movements and they also have the good jumping ability his pedigree promises. All of these characteristics are impressively documented in the FN’s 2004 Predicted Breeding Value statistics.
In 2012, Quaterback was the sire of a Vice-Bundeschampion.
Quarterback uses his body as nothing you have ever seen. He is the talk of the town in Germany, with movements that can only be described as incredibly supple, strong and uphill. Over 50 sons of Quaterback are now licensed, including the 2009 and 2010 young stallion champions in Neustadt/Dosse. In addition, Quaterback has produced several premium stallions at almost all German licensings.
