Painted Quickstep

Gender: Mare
Date of Birth: 15/10/2015
Registration number: AS 15/135 A

Description:

A 16.2 hand uber elegant sport horse type filly with big extravagant movement and ultra-correct conformation, bold top line and kind eye. Quickstep is easy to handle in new environments and she loves to please. A real eye catcher with big scopy rolling movement. She is by the well-known up to date dressage champion, Compton house Quantico ridden by Catherine Berning, out of a foundation bred refined type appaloosa mare. Quickstep placed in the top 3 at her first show when she was presented as a mere two year old in a warmblood based class for movement. The local judge, Gregory Cross, commented on her handle ability and elegance. She is a very late maturing individual and will mate only at the age of 6 to 8 years of age.

Sire:

Compton house Quantico; A 17hand liver chestnut Hanoverian with white markings. Licensed as a warmblood breeding stallion and competing at high level dressage with the Bernings. This stallion is an elegant young boy by the well-known Quaterback out of a state premium Salieri mare. Some of the best breeding in the world! This stallion’s foals sell to the up-market with a selective mare policy. We were very fortunate to obtain this covering and produce a filly!

Dam:

Kondos Maletsatsi; A 16hand few spot mare by multiple national champion of champions Kondos Moonbeat out of a Wap’s Pajamas mare, Kondos Sassy Lady. Again a very good combination of foundation appaloosa breeding lines. Solid, correct and kind.

Future plans:

Painted Quickstep will be retained for training and breeding. She will be put to our resident stallion, Painted Waps Last Image. This foal, due September 2019, will be a great combination of lineage to produce an elegant big sport horse type appaloosa with bold colour. Will be kept by stud to grow and back will then be available to a competent rider.
