Quality Time TN
Everything indicates that Quality Time is going to be a true foundation sire of showjumpers. His son Floris TN has been approved by the KWPN and every year again sons of Quality Time earn tickets for the second and third round or even the performance test of the KWPN Stallion Selections. In addition, his daughters Féline and Fadessa H2 received fantastic scores of 83 and 86.5 points for the KWPN Mare Test IBOP.
The famous breeder Floris van Leuken bred Quality Time, who is a son of the well-known Quantum – sire to Grand Prix showjumpers such as Quintero la Silla, GK Quentin, Karatina and Quin Chin. In addition, Quality Time was bred out of an excellent damline as well: granddam Jessika II produced the valuable stallion Goodwill and out of this same Holsteiner damline 1463, the Olympic showjumpers Lanciano (Philippe Guerdat) and Lucilla II (Princess Haya) were bred.
Ridden by Jeroen Dubbeldam, Quality was among the Netherlands’ best combinations. In 2011 they became Dutch champion and one year later they won the Grand Prix of San Patrignano. Last year the talented rider Zoï Snels took over the reins of the experienced Quality Time. “Quality Time gets me to a higher level in the sport, I really owe that to him. Quality Time is careful and has unlimited power and has an dedication of 100%. He would always bring me to the finish, in any class. And this top attitude he passes on, because his offspring have it as well!”

Approved Son - Floris TN
Ridden by Zoï Snels, Floris develops in one of The Netherland’s most talented young showjumpers. With his huge scope and extreme carefulness, Floris proves to be competitive again and again and jumps clear round after clear round. Some common characteristics for horses from the famous Sina-damline, from which Floris was bred.
Ridden by Jeroen Dubbeldam, sire Quality Time was among the best horses in The Netherlands. Quality Time, bred by famous breeder Floris van Leuken, became Dutch champion in 2011 and one year later he won the Grand Prix of San Patrignano. Floris’ grandsire Vancouver brings in the genes of Le Tôt de Semilly and jumped Nations Cups himself with Wim Schröder.
The direct damline of Floris is an unique one; dam Arsinaa is none other than the half-sister of Mac Kinley, the famous Olympic showjumper who won team silver with Rolf-Göran Bengtsson and achieved an individual fourth place at the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004. The approved stallion Baedeker (Heartbreaker x Concorde), who jumps at international level with Daniel Augusto Da Rios, and the approved international showjumping stallion Rocco (Fuego du Prelet x Purioso), ridden by Ahmed Tolba, are also closely related to Floris.
