Quintero la Silla (EU)
Holstein, 1998, Dark Bay, 16,3hh
Sire: Quantum, Dam: Ibara (by Chamonix)
Quintero is the first licensed Quantum son. Big-framed with an extremely powerful back he is considered as one of the Holsteiner Verband's most talented jumpers. The athletic stallion stands out thanks to the carefulness, power and overall quality of his jump.
All from heavier mares that need refinement through to middle weight mares that lack sparkle will benefit from breeding to Quintero. He is well noted for mares with weak backs, and those that are a little cold blooded. He already has fine examples from Caretino and Cento mares.

Scoring 144 index points, he was the best jumper in his stallion performance test group. Ridden by Lars Bak Andersen, he qualified for the Bundeschampionat at five and six years old, placed 3rd at the Bad Segeberg state championship, placed 5th at the Lanaken young horse world championships at the age of five and took 7th place at 6 years of age.
In 2007 he and Rolf-Göran Bengtsson wrapped up the Schleswig-Holstein jumping championship, along with wins and placings in the Falsterbo, Paderborn, and Munich Grand Prixs. In 2008, Quintero impressively continued his streak of successes at Grand Prix and nations cup level at the horse shows in Bremen, Neumünster, Aachen, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Geneva. Also in 2009, he repeated his success at the Grand Prix in Leipzig, in Bremen, Hagen and at the Aachen nations cup. In 2010, he confirmed his exceptional quality as a jumper by wins in Paris and Geneva. In 2011, he won the Grand Prix in Bremen, the Barcelona nations cup with the Swedish team and - for the third time in a row - the Gucci Challenge in Paris. 2013 again proved a very good season for Quintero and saw him finish 6th at the Gothenburg world cup final, along with other achievements.
