About Quite Easy

Occasionally Hilltop Farm imports frozen semen from exceptional sires in Europe to offer to our breeders.  We developed a wonderful relationship with Flyinge, the Swedish National Stud, during the time Bugatti was leased to them and we were very excited when the opportunity arose to offer one of their most popular stallions, Quite Easy, to North American breeders. In late 2009 Quie Easy was sold to the prestigious French stud Haras de Brullemail and we are thrilled to be able to continue to offer this exceptional stallion to US breeders.

While at Flyinge, Quite Easy stood to a very large book of mares each year and then competed after each breeding season. Quite Easy was shown by Peter Eriksson, one of Sweden's top Grand Prix show jumping riders and was successful in sport up to 1.60 meters, or the Grand Prix level. He was 2nd in Sweden's outdoor championships and was the winner of Sweden's 7 & 8 Year Old Championships. He was a regular winner until age 12 when he moved to France and focused solely on breeding. His tremendous scope and careful technique are key factors in his success in sport.  It is interesting to note that an injury as a foal left Quite Easy with only one eye, making his competitive success even more remarkable and shows the heart that this stallion offers.

Quite Easy's talent is easy to recognize within the great names of his pedigree. He unites the brilliant talent of his sire Quidam de Revel, who brings Galoubet and Almé's influence, with the reliable athleticism of Germany's Landgraf and Capitano, lending the strengths of Ladykiller xx, Ramzes, and Cottage Son xx. Quite Easy’s sire, Quidam de Revel, is one of the most successful show jumping sires and his progeny are in high demand around the world. Quidam de Revel helped win the Team Bronze for France in the 1992 Olympics and placed 4th individually.  He was sold to Denmark in 1993 and continued to win many international Grand Prix’s under Thomas Velin.  He has been ranked as the number one show jumping stallion in the world for many years since then and has produced many internationally successful offspring, including Tlaloc M, Diabolo du Parc, Gandini Bianca, El Campeons Cirka Z, Eve des Etisses, and Nabab de Reve.

Quite Easy’s dam Birte II is by the legendary Landgraf and is out of the highly celebrated mare U-Capitola. Landgraf I has over 130 approved sons and more than 80 state premium daughters and is one of the world's most renowned sires for producing successful show jumpers.  Birte II is also the dam of Quite Easy II who was approved in Holstein and Casir Ask, a successful Grand Prix jumper. U-Capitola is the full-sister to the stallions Capitol I-III and produced four approved sons, including Landcapitol.

In Quite Easy’s early foal crops we saw Swedish National Champions such as Phillipa S and and Quite Lovely earning multiple scores of 9 and even 10.  Quite Easy's first foal crop went through the Swedish national performance testing for 3-year-olds in 2002. Of the 14 were presented in the performance testing, 12 received Class 1 awards. Six of these received awards for jumping and three were highlighted with dressage awards. Quite Easy's multitalented son Qalle passed his stallion licensing in 2003, with good remarks.  Quite Easy has several approved sons in Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Holland, and Sweden. His son Quattro was Reserve Champion stallion at his performance test.

As his offspring entered the competition arena, the success continued including Quilamba’s National Championships and QL’s 3rd place finish at the World Championships for Young Horses in Jumping as a five year old.  Two Quite Easy offspring participated in the 2002 Danish National Jumping Championships at Wilhelmsborg.  We now see these offspring moving up to the International level and Quite Easy is represented around the globe. We now see many offspring competing at the International level and being sought after by top international riders, including Jackson Hole who now competes at the CSI5*Level under well-known rider Harrie Smolders.  In 2013, Easy Contact Humlan, Aleqs, and Siri were all part of World Cup and Nations Cup competitions. 

In 2007, Quite Easy was leased to France and the response from breeders was immediate as he bred over 200 mares in one season!  From that first season, 10 foals qualified for the French Foal Championships and one went on to become the Supreme Champion. In 2011, the Quite Easy gelding Ramsa Villa Rose won the French Eventing Championships for 6 Year Olds and the Bronze Team Medal at the Junior European Championships.

North American breeders are lucky to have access to a stallion of Quite Easy's caliber.  His quick reactions, scope, and strong hind end transmit consistently to his offspring and he is a top choice for serious jumper breeders, but he also sires offspring with high-quality gaits and can offer an interesting outcross for a dressage breeder. Quite Easy offspring typically show a beautiful modern type, average height, and a strong supple back.

 

“We are thrilled to once again offer North American breeders this exceptional stallion and look forward to furthering Quite Easy's international influence in the coming years.”  ~ Natalie DiBerardinis
