The Secret's out! Germany's best kept secret, when it comes to young stallions, has finally crossed borders and shown himself to an international audience at the biggest stage in his age division, the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses.
The judges loved the horse and scored him 9.9 for trot, 9.5 for walk, 9.7 for canter, 8.8 for submission and 9.8 for general impression, which totaled into 9.54 points and the victory in the qualifier.
This popular black stallion won his Schlieckau 14-day Performance Test with a score of 9.5! - including gallop 10.0, trot 9.5 and rideability of 10.00.
In 2019 he wowed the crowds at the World Young Horse Championships for 5-Year olds, winning the qualification round and earning Silver in the Finals with multiple "10s".
Secret is a son of triple World Champion of Young Dressage Horses, Sezuan. Sezuan was also a champion at five, six and seven years old. During these competitions, he received scores of 9.5 and 10.0. Sezuan was champion of his stallion test and received the high score of 10.0 ten times, a new record. From Sezuan's first crops Secret and Sam in Berlin have been licensed.
Secret's damline has produced a number of international performance horses such as Liebenberg and Top Gun, successful in Italy. Thirty eight approved stallions descend from this damline, including Aktuell, Christ, Sorento, Weltruf and Wildfang. Dam, Seline, is sired by St. Moritz, who in a short breeding career has sired many important sport and breeding successors. The third dam is sired by Rotspon and includes Argentan, Woermann and Lugano in her pedigree.
Quater Twist WSH Premium Mare Candidate and Champion mare at her Hanoverian inspection
Quater Twist WSH was bred by Williams Sport Horses and retained for breeding and sport purposes. In 2019 she was presented as a 4 year old for her Mare Performance Test to the Hanoverian Verband. "Q" rose to the occasion under Billie Boylen and had fantastic scores and high praise from the judges Dr Ludwig Christmann from Germany, Sandy Hunt from USA, Ursula Hosking and Greta Haupt from Canada. Comments included that Quater Twist is what breeders should be aiming for in a dressage horse, an excellent type, long legged, elegant with a good neck set, correct legs, excellent walk and very good canter. She received her Premium candidate status and won the mare show!!
Q is by the great stallion Quaterhall. Under Charlott Maria Schurmann, Quaterhall has competed in the Bundeschampionate in both 2013 (placing 5th) and 2014 (placing 14 in the consolation finals). Together the two went on to compete at the Prix St. Georges level performing quite well. At the 2018 CDI Fot, Prix St Georges, Quaterhall placed third with 67.735 for Germany, and a 68.941 in the Intermediare I.
Quaterhall is the dark chestnut son of the legendary Quaterback out of St.Pr.St. Dorata, sired by Donnerhall/Walt Disney, and he comes from what some consider the most successful dam line of the Brandenburg Main and the County Stud Neustadt in Dosse. The mare Poesie produced the licensed stallions Samba Hit I to IV, as well as, the exceptional mare Poetin.
With the sire Bundeschampion Quaterback, and the famous dressage dam sire Donnerhall, Quaterhall guarantees extraordinary movement potential in his offspring. They are always in great balance, having supple and floating movements, and a phenomenal walk which is inhertied by the D-line.
Quater Twist is out of Gold Digger, by Glorioso Noir. Glorioso was a beautiful stallion with suspended gaits and excellent conformation that makes him equally talented for dressage and jumping. He completed his 100-day stallion testing in Germany and finished in 11th place out of 40 stallions, placing equally well in both dressage and jumping.
