Quizzical R

Chestnut colt 04/11/16 mature 16.3hh
Questing R x Josie R

Quizzical R is a superb chestnut colt with floating paces and a wonderful friendly nature. Quizzical R is by our newest addition Questing R already boasts a massive 89% at novice level. Questing R is by Quaterback, who carries the Quando Quando bloodline. Quando Quando represented Australia in 2006 at the WEG in Aachen, Germany, and the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Quando has the most amazing temperament and this has found its way all the way down to Questing R. Quaterback was the Bundeschampion 3yr old riding horse. He scored a 10 for his rideablilty. On Quaterback’s dam line is Poesie who is the mother of Poetin who won the Bundeschampion as a 3yo, 5yo and 6yo. Poetin sold for €2.5 million Euros!

Quizzical R’s dam line is fascinating in that it has Jive Magic who is a Grand Prix dressage winner having won the Sydney CDI Grand Prix class in 2010. Also on Quizzical R’s dam line is Argentille Ilkay who is by Variant. The Dutch sire Variant is also in the dam line of Valegro who was the individual gold medallist at the London Olympics in 2012 and at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016. It does seem that the Variant bloodline has been until now overlooked. Argentille Ilkay (dec) does have a really good strike rate of producing Grand Prix dressage horses from very limited opportunity. What a wonderful collection of bloodlines and promise that Quizzical R represents!
