Quattro remarkably had two offspring qualified for the Olympics in Athens 2004; Quando Quando for dressage and Oliver Q for jumping! Quicksilber won the gold medal at Lanaken in 2005 with the Spanish rider Manuel Fernandeze Saro and Suzie Quattro with Luciana Diniz and Quanta Costa from Rolf-Goran Bengtsson both jumped successfully in 2005.
Quattro is a son of the Selle Francais stallion Qredo de Paulstra, winner of the Grand Prix of Bordeaux. Qredo was sired by the legendary Galoubet, which two times won World Cup Qualifiers and produced international jumpers such as Quick Star and Quatoubet de Rouet. Grandfather Alme is even more famous with his offspring Jalisco B. and I Love You. At the other side of Qredo we find Furioso xx; father of Lutteur (Gold Medalist Tokyo) and Le Tyroll; father of Rocket of Janou Lefebvre.
Quattro himself is out of the famous line of Kermesse. Quattro was 2nd in the Performance Test at Medingen with a high score of 130 points. In 1994 he was Reserve Champion of the Oldenburg Korung, based on his performance test and his first offspring.
Quattro jumped very well in 1996
with his rider Gilbert Bockmann and they won more than 20 1.30 courses through
the summer. Quattro also jumped in the international circuit successfully,
including second in the Grand Prix of Emsburen,
His first offspring show spectacular gaits. They also inherited Quattro's beautiful type and free jump very well. Since 1997 Quattro has more than 10 approved sons; Quando Quando, Quantes, Quatier Latin, Quell Charmeur, etc. Quattro's offspring Quando Quando, Much Ado and Quantum Tyme are famous in Grand Prix dressage.
Zeoliet, Richman's damsire, is by the modern breeding stallion Ramiro, who has earned the designation Euro-stallion.

mare in the
Zeoliet was a great success at the performance test at Ermelo with 9.2 for dressage, a 9.9 for jumping under the saddle and 9.5 for free jumping. Zeoliet has been successful in the National Stallion Competition and he went extraordinarily well in ZZ dressage with Roger Schulkens.
The offspring of Zeoliet seem to have inherited his magnificent qualities. Zeoliet is high on the dressage index and on the jumping index. In 1995 Zeoliet was in 12th place at the World Breeding Ranking for Showjumping sires.
The international showjumper Escado with Stefan Lauber who won the Team Gold Medal at the European Championships in 1995 is by Zeoliet and also Easyboy with Laura Balisky who became 3rd in the Grand Prix of Calgary Canada is by Zeoliet.
There is a long list of horses by Zeoliet that perform well in both dressage and jumping.
