The Horse Fair, 1853-1855 Rosa Bonheur






Quaterback is a noble stallion with tremendous magnetism and charm and with his unbelievably accentuated movements he enthralls his audience at every event. He also has very correct conformation as well as excellent interior values. His foal crops have been impressively consistent; he passed his brilliant movement, round, strong type with good topline, and especially open characters.

He started his stallion career by being named Champion of his licensing in Neustadt/Dosse in 2005.  He was also winner of the Bundeschampionat in the class for three year old riding stallions in 2006 in Warendorf; highest scores for trot and canter. Both test riders honored his rideability with the highest score of 10.0.  He won several tests for young riding horses as well as his 30-day test (total score 8.89; final score with emphasis on dressage 9.75; final score with emphasis on jumping 8.43).

Quaterback 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.




Quaterback's sire is the beautiful stallion, Quaterman, whose movement is ground covering with a massive amount of reach. Quaterman qualified for the Finals of the Bundeschampionat in 2003, 2004 and 2005. Quaterman's grand dam is Poesie, who produced World Champions Poetin and Samba Hit I, II, and III. Poetin was Bundeschampion 2000, Reserve Bundeschampion 2001, World Champion 2003, Bundeschampion 2003 and sold for a world record amount of 2.5 million euros at PSI Auction 2003.


Quaterman shows the athletic ability and versatility of his sire line, and is by Quando-Quando, the excellent dressage competition stallion that Christy Oatley-Nist rides.  Quando-Quando's 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 ridability and a score of 9 for temperament, walk, trot and canter Quando-Quando has always been at the top. His sport successes include participation in the Bundeschampionate 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. His off-spring are very popular because of their modern, noble looks, outstanding ridability and strong movements and the good jumping ability his pedigree promises. All of these characteristics are impressively documented in the FN's 2004 Predicted Breeding Value statistics.


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.


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. That sire line (Beach Boy) goes again to French blood through the stallion “Zeus”. On
Brandenburger’s dam line comes the excellent Hanoverian stallion Wendekreis, admired for the
excellent riding and jumping horses he produced as well as his most famous son Werther. He is also an
admired dam sire with Alalbaster and Wolkenstein I and II coming from his daughters.


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.
