Astek Quatermaster is the epitome of the modern performance horse. A top quality modern warmblood type with an air of noble presence about him that commands attention.
His movement shows huge athleticism, elasticity and elevation including a "devine" canter, combined with the most kind, calm, intelligent temperament which makes him a true pleasure to work with.
Son of Bundeschampionate Champion
Astek Quatermaster's sire "Quaterback" was the undoubted highlight of the German Stallion Parade as a 3 year old after his undisputed victory at the 2006 Bundeschampionate where he was described as "uphill, superbly engaged, elastic, stunning, unbelieveable!"
Quaterback's scores for the Bundeschampionat: Trot; 9.5, Canter: 10, Walk 7.5, Conformation: 9.5, Overall Impression: 9.5. Quaterback quickly became the talk of the town in Germany known as a "moving sensation".
Grandson of dual talented Quattro
Quaterback's grand-sire “Quattro” has the bloodlines of many superior jumpers tracing back to Galoubet, Alme, Furioso etc, yet this is also a line of superior movers with power and suspension. Quattro, himself, excelled in dressage, yet showed much talent over fences, competing at international World Cup level showjumping with success.
Generations of Rideability, Athleticism and Trainability
The depth of pedigree of athletic, multi-talented individuals is clearly displayed in our young stallion Astek Quatermaster whose own athleticism and naturally elastic gaits show these same attributes.
With his athleticism and temperament, we envisage him to be a serious stallion prospect for both quality Warmblood and Thoroughbred mares seeking overall quality, elasticity and suppleness of gaits including knee and hock action, and the super temperament and rideability his bloodlines are all so well known for.
His bloodlines hold both world class Dressage and Showjumping performers.
