A Holstein performance stallion par excellence, particularly athletic and with a harmonious body, Le Quidam convinces with his excellent top line. His jumping manner makes for a great experience, as regards bascule and scope. Equipped with the necessary ambition and a ground-covering canter, he will master any course. Le Quidam took his stallion performance test in Münster-Handorf. As a 4- to 6-year-old, he gained many wins and placings in tests for young show jumping horses at novice (A) to intermediate (M) level. From the age of five, Le Quidam was being prepared for the top-level sport under the saddle of Mathias Janssen, and at the age of six he already won an M** jumping class. The well-attuned pair could boast about sixty placements at advanced level and was placed at the finals of the German Championships in Balve in 2013. In 2015, Le Quidam achieved international successes under the saddle of Hans-Dieter Dreher, for example in Dortmund and Nörten-Hardenberg, as well as the victory in the GP of Gorla Minore. In addition, he was also successful up to S** level with young rider Pia Reich.
Sire: Landjunge, a Holstein born son of Landgraf, already attracted attention as a young stallion when he won numerous tests for young show jumping horses. His descendants also have impressive sport careers, with Lacrimoso under Patrice Delaveau or Lanthago under Werner Muff leading the way. 12 licensed sons and 3 state premium mares have been registered in Germany alone. As the stallion was sold abroad, he couldn’t continue his breeding career. However, he made further progress as a sport horse and collected wins and placings in top-level show jumping. His sire, Landgraf I, can be regarded as the most successful show jumping sire of Holstein breeding. In Germany alone, the prize money of his offspring amounts to almost 5,000,000 euros, not counting the prizes gained abroad. One quarter of his offspring registered as competition horses have been successful at S-level. He was among the first crop of foals of Ladykiller xx.
Dam: Naomi, a Quidam de Revel-Ramiro-Ladykiller mare, was placed in jumping classes up to intermediate (M) level herself. Her dam, Ellen, produced five further progeny, which successfully competed in dressage and show jumping. Special attention should be given to the dam’s dam, Hellen, who had two highly successful dressage horses as sons. Naomi’s sire, Quidam de Revel, is a stallion of superlatives, a legend already during his lifetime, and both as a show jumper and top class sire at that. In 1982, he won bronze at the Olympic Games in Barcelona with the French team, ridden by Herve Godignon. Today, Quidam de Revel is considered as “Chef du Race Mondial ” just like his grandsire Almé and his sire Jalisco B, for he carried the Selle Francais blood into the breeds of the world. His descendants have won more than 2 million euros in Germany alone, and more than 50 sons have been licensed. At the 2002 World Championships in Jerez, no other stallion could boast more offspring than Quidam de Revel.
