Quidam Blue is an imported, fully licensed and approved Hanoverian stallion, successful at the international Grand Prix jumper level. Moreover, he is a gem to have in the stable — a beautiful stallion that loves to work, travel and is a gentleman to work around.
As a three-year-old, Quidam Blue completed the 70-Day Performance Test in Warendorf, Germany. Throughout the test he impressed judges with his calm character, pleasant mind and work attitude. He scored well in rideability and excelled in the jumping phase. He finished with a combined index of 107.31, finishing fourth overall in the jumping category. Quidam Blue’s pedigree is filled with famous French, Holsteiner and Westfalen jumping bloodlines, including the names of Quidam de Revel, Landgraf I, Come On, Cantus, Pilot and Weinberg. His grandsire Quidam de Revel and his maternal grandsire, Come On, were both most successful international show jumpers. His sire Quidam’s Rubin was only granted a short life himself; in this short time he already stood out as an exceptional sire of performance horses and licensed stallions.
Quidam Blue started his show career in 2010 with great success, winning the Five-Year-Old Western Canadian Young Horse Championship. The following years he collected many ribbons at shows like the Spruce Meadows Summer Series under his amateur rider Beke Brinkmann, and played his way into the 1.30 m.
Owned in a partnership with Juniper Farms, he has continued to move up the levels with his rider Jill Henselwood. 2014 highlights of his first year in the 1.50m level were a third place finish as part of the Canadian Team at the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup in Bratislava , a second place at the Wild Card Smart Pack Grand Prix at Saugerties, and lastly the win in the SynOil Energy Services CSI** Cup at the Royal West in Calgary.
In 2018 we are again looking forward his oldest offsprings’ appearances at shows; so far impressing with their easy-going temperaments, athleticism and willingness to work.
Quidam Blue himself is currently undergoing rehab following severe injury. For this reason he is home for breeding (both fresh and frozen). He is consistently improving and we look forward to him coming back to the show ring!
