Quaterback (Archived)


A stallion that seems like he could only come from another planet - with his light-footed, brilliant movement and perfect cadence, all eyes become riveted on Quaterback when he appears.

He 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.

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.

Quaterback in the end excelled as a performance producer, which his HEK-breed value of 155 and a fourth place in the WBFSH-ranking for dressage horse-producers reflect.  From 87 descendants with successes at the S-level, 19 already reached the Grand Prix-level.  His oldest descedants are only 13 years of age, in other words, many are not yet mature enough for Grand Prix-classes.  Ten-year-old Quantaz out of a Hohenstein dam, is most successful.  Quantaz had the talent to get to Isabell Werth.  In 2020, they participated in six Grand Prix-classes, and won them all.

Quaterback sired no less than 72 licensed sons in Germany and has 532 daughters registered as broodmares, no less than 145 of them are state premium. 

His most successful offspring are Quantaz (Isabell Werth), Quater Back Junior (Nicolas Wagner), Quatermain (Marina Mattsson), Quotenkonig (Theresa Friesdorf), Quantum Vis MW (Dorothee Schneider), Quebec and Quantum (Ulrike Prunthaller), Pathetique (Dorothee Schneider), Touchdown (Patrik Kittel), Queensland (Kristin Biermann), Quam Libet (Lisa-Marie Klossinger), Qatar (Berill Szoke Toth), Mister-C (Dorothee Schneider), Quaterboy (Estelle Wettstein), Quentano (Emile Faurie), Quadroneur, Quincy, Quintus, Quaterback I, Quater Figlio, Qredit Hilltop, Quaterbold du Payrol, and many many more.

He passes his big and fleet-footed movement to his offspring, and therefore has produced a lot of foal champions and auction foals. One of them was sold for 120.000 euros at a Hanoverian auction.

Quaterback was ranked 47th in the 2017 WBFSH Dressage Sire rankings, 22nd in 2018 and in 2019 he made an impressive jump to the #5 spot as a top sire of the world!  In 2019 he sired two Grand Prix horses, one for Dorothee Schneider and one for Isabell Werth.  In 2012, Quaterback was the sire of the Vice-Bundeschampion.

Quaterback sired no less than 72 licensed sons in Germany and has 532 daughters registered as broodmares, no less than 145 of them are state premium.
