Pedigree profile of Rivendell Quickstep

D.O.B 21/11/2016 - Diamonit (Imp Hann) x Quaterback x Wolkenstein II 

Quickstep is a very striking, strong and beautiful filly by imported frozen semen of the stallion Diamonit, out of imported mare Quintet who is by Quaterback.

Diamonit was the most coveted horse at the 2009 PSI Auction. Diamonit was impressive even as a young horse, completing his licensing tests as premium stallion. In his 30-day test, he achieved high scores of up to 9.75 and, in 2007, he was the stunning Oldenburg Regional Champion. This exceptional mover is now competing successfully in advanced level dressage classes that reflect his age and training level.

Sire, Diamond Hit, successful at Grand Prix level, has produced offspring that sold for high prices at auctions in 2009 and he is consistently siring top-level competition horses. Diamond Hit's progeny have collectively won nearly EUR 80,000, ten have already won advanced level classes and over 22 of his stallion offspring are approved. Maternal grandsire, Santander H, combines the outstanding genes of heroes Sandro and Contender, and produces remarkably versatile horses with both dressage and jumping abilities.

Diamonit's foals are absolutely beautiful with a dry and aesthetic conformation, athletic build and impressive movements. The best example is the premium stallion "Diatano" at the licensing in Westphalia in 2009.

Quickstep’s dam is by the stallion Quaterback, who as a young stallion 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:

     Trot: 9.5
     Canter: 10
     Walk: 7.5
     Conformation: 9.5
     Overall Impression: 9.5

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:

     Int.: 9.0
     Trot: 9.25
     Canter: 9.75
     Walk: 7.63
     Riding Qualities: 9.75
     Jumping: 7.75

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 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 rode.

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.

Quando Quando is by the significant stallion, Quattro, 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, and whose 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.
