Rivendell Queen of Hearts

Pedigree profile of Rivendell Queen of Hearts

D.O.B. 12/09/2020 - Decamerone (imp Hann) x  Quaterback x Wolkenstein II

 Queen of Hearts is definitely part of my heart.  This confident, beautiful, perfect black filly is by imported semen of the stallion Decamerone.  Semen I imported years ago and never used, and am now so happy that I did. Her dam, the imported Oldenburg mare Quintet, has produced several exceptional foals for me already.  Rivendell Royal Flush x Royal Classic, Rivendell Quickstep x Diamonit and Rivendell Quickbeam x Sir Donnerhall.

Decamerone is a modern, light-footed and elegant athlete with a quality pedigree, who is competing successfully at Inter I level dressage.


This outstanding stallion has a gilt-edged pedigree and his spectacular performances ensured that he was one of the most eye-catching young stallions at the Oldenburg licensing in 2009. Three superlative paces and a stylish performance-oriented conformation attitude make him a serious potential future championship winner. His excellent scores for walk, trot, canter and rideability at his performance test also confirm his potential.

Decamerone’s pedigree combines the genes of all current top dressage breeding stallions. His sire, Diamond Hit, is a former Vice World Champion and two times Vice Bundeschampion, international Grand Prix winner and regular producer of top horses. Maternal grandsire, Sandro Hit, has sired numerous approved stallions, eleven Bundeschampions – one of which is the current auction price record holder San Doncisco – and many top-class competition horses.

Decamerone’s excellent pedigree is rounded off by Rubenstein I, a stallion with over EUR 2 million in competition winnings who never fails to pass on his rideability gene and has produced 211 advanced level dressage horses, plus top breeding stallion Pik Bube I.

He is descended from the prestigious Lovestory Oldenburg dam line. It has produced numerous winners and elite status mares, approved competition stallions and the Pavo Cup winner Dreamcatcher, Vice Regional Champion Froschkönig, La Piko S, Levantino, Feinbrand, Sir Diamond and Controller. Decamerone epitomises performance breeding

Queen of heart’s dam, Quintet, is by the stallion Quaterback, who as a young stallion already started his winning ways. Paired with the talented young rider, Christian Flamm of Hessen, Quaterback galloped away from the competition at the Bundeschampionates in 2006 with the following scores:

   Trot: 9.5

   Canter: 10

   Walk: 7.5

   Conformation: 9.5

   Overall Impression: 9.5

He started his stallion career by being named Champion of his licensing in Neustadt/Dosse in 2005.

Quaterback was the radiant Bundeschampion of the three year old riding horses in 2006 with the highest scores for his trot and canter. The test riders in Warendorf even gave him this dream score of 10.0. Prior to this test, he had won several tests for young riding horses. After the Bundeschampionates, he went on to win his 30 day test at Neustadt/Dosse with outstanding scores:

   Int.: 9.0

   Trot: 9.25

   Canter: 9.75

   Walk: 7.63

   Riding Qualities: 9.75

   Jumping: 7.75

He was also the winner of his 30-day test with a final score of 9.14 in dressage, an 8.43 for jumping and an overall score of 8.88. As if it were not enough to have unbelievably dynamic movement, he was also blessed with an outstanding type.

Quaterback comes from one of the most successful mare lines of modern day. His dam Passionata is a half-sister of the unforgettable World Champion and double Bundeschampion, Poetin. Her full brothers Samba Hit I to IV put on convincing presentations at the Bundeschampionate. Samba Hit I was also a finalist in the 2006 Nürnberg Burgpokal and the sire of Samba’s Diamond who became the Champion Stallion of the licensing in Berlin-Brandenburg and Sachsen-Anhalt that same year.

Quaterback’s successful advanced (S) level sire Quaterman also participated in several Bundeschampionats and is deemed one of the best sires for passing on good movements in the new German States. The grandsire Quando-Quando took 15th place at the World Championships in Aachen in 2006 under Kristy Oatley-Nist. With a pedigree geared for performance from all sides and from the famous Neustädter P family, all doors are open for Quaterback

His pedigree is steeped in the traditions of the Brandenburgisches Landgestuet. His sire, Quaterman, was bred there and is by Quando-Quando, the excellent dressage competition stallion that Christy Oatley-Nist rode.

His career in sport and breeding has been exemplary, beginning in 1995 as a top colt at the Vechta auction, continuing to become the 1c Premium winner at the stallion approval and the undisputed winner at the stallion performance test with the highest possible score of 10 for character and willingness to perform, a score of 9.5 for rideability and a score of 9 for temperament, walk, trot and canter. Highlights in sport have been participation in the Bundeschampionat finals for 5 and 6 year old dressage horses, 5th place at the World Championships in the class for 6 year old dressage horses as well as 5th place at the Nürnberg Burgpokal 2003, prior to which he won the VTV Dressage Stallion of the Year Award. With first places in international Grand Prix in 2004 and winning World Cup B finals in Dortmund , he was then nominated for the Olympic Games in Athens.

Quando Quando is by the significant stallion, Quattro, whose bloodlines speak of great jumpers, yet also super movers with power and suspension. Quattro, himself, excelled in dressage, yet showed talent over fences. And well he should, being by Qredo de Paulstro. That sire line goes back to French blood through Galoubet, Alme, Z, Ibrahim, Furioso xx.

A French stallion with an outstanding performance record and off-spring to prove his qualities as a sire. With a score of more than 130, he finished his performance test in Medingen on 2 nd place. In 1994 he became the Reserve Champion Stallion at the Oldenburg approval. In the meanwhile he has been successful internationally at shows in Caen (FRA), Leeuwarden (NL), Berlin, Munich, Geneva (CH) and Moscow. Along with many State Premium mares, he has also sired 13 licensed sons so far and has supplied jumpers as well as dressage horses in series that have reached top international level, particularly Oliver Q under Ryuichi Obata for Japan at the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004.

Quaterman, himself, has been a very good sire and competition horse, having qualified for the Finals of the Bundeschampionates in 2003, 2004 and 2005.

The dam line of Quaterback is a very well known and respected mare line in Brandenburg. His dam “Passionata” is by the Beach Boy son , “Brandenburger”, who made his performance

as a jumper, and whose sire line (Beach Boy) goes again to French blood through the stallion Zeus.

On Brandenburger’s dam line comes the excellent Hanoverian stallin Wendekreis, admired for the excellent riding horses he produced.

Quaterback’s grand-dam is the famous mare Poesie by Brentano II. Poesie is best known for her Sandro Hit daughter, Poetin, and also the Sandro Hit sons, Samba Hits I, II, III and IV.

The list of accomplishments of these offspring is tremendous. So, in Quaterback, we have depth of pedigree of athletic, multi-talented individuals.

Quaterback comes from one of the most successful mare lines of modern day. His dam Passionata is a half-sister of the unforgettable World Champion and double Bundeschampion, Poetin. Her full brothers Samba Hit I to IV put on convincing presentations at the Bundeschampionate. Samba Hit I was also a finalist in the 2006 Nürnberg Burgpokal and the sire of Samba’s Diamond who became the Champion Stallion of the licensing in Berlin-Brandenburg and Sachsen-Anhalt that same year.

The grandsire Quando-Quando took 15th place at the World Championships in Aachen in 2006 under Kristy Oatley-Nist. With a pedigree geared for performance from all sides and from the famous Neustädter P family, all doors are open for Quaterback.

His off-spring are very popular because of their modern, noble looks, outstanding rideability and strong movements and they also have the good jumping ability his pedigree promises. All of these characteristics are impressively documented in the FN’s 2004 Predicted Breeding Value statistics.

In 2012, Quaterback was the sire of a Vice-Bundeschampion.

Quarterback uses his body as nothing you have ever seen. He is the talk of the town in Germany, with movements that can only be described as incredibly supple, strong and uphill. Over 50  sons of Quaterback are now licensed, including the 2009 and 2010 young stallion champions in Neustadt/Dosse. In addition, Quaterback has produced several premium stallions at almost all German licensings.
