Moreover, his daughters are also excellent broodmares.
Quite Easy is top Grand Prix competition stallion. He has been successful in sport up to 1.60 meters, and was 2nd in Sweden's outdoor championships and the winner of the Swedish seven and eight year old championships. His tremendous scope and careful technique have made him extremely successful in sport. His pedigree unites the brilliant talent of his sire Quidam de Revel, with the reliable athleticism of Germany's Landgraf and Capitano, lending the blood influence of Ladykiller xx, Ramzes, and Cottage Son xx. Quidam de Revel helped win the team bronze medal for France in the 1992 Olympics and placed fourth individually. That year he was ranked as the number one show jumping stallion in the world. He was sold to Denmark in 1993 and continues to win many international Grand Prix's in show jumping under Thomas Velin. Quidam de Revel is a stallion of legendary status, with 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 also-legendary Landgraf I, out of the full-sister to the stallions Capitol I, II, and III. Birte II is also the dam of Quite Easy II and Casir Ask, a successful Grand Prix jumper. Birte II's damsire Landgraf I is one of the world's most renowned sires for producing successful show jumpers. Quite Easy's offspring rideable and increasingly successful in showjumping and dressage careers. In 2001, Quite Easy was Flyinge's most popular stallion and in 2002 he was Sweden's most popular stallion on both the national and international level. In 2007, Quite Easy was leased to France, where he bred over 200 mares in one season. Quite Easy has approved sons in Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Holland, and Sweden. His son Quattro was Reserve Champion stallion at his performance test in Wilhelmsborg, and two offspring participated in the 2002 Danish National Jumping Championships at Wilhelmsborg. Son Quite L won the qualifier and was 8th in the final. Quite Easy has had Class 1 foals at all foal championships. At the 2003 Three-Year Old Performance Tests in Sweden, Quite Easy demonstrated a 70% rate of producing premium jumping offspring and 64% premium offspring rate in dressage. Quite Easy's daughter Quillabamba J was the Champion three year-old jumping mare in 2003.

QUITE EASY USEF LEADING HUNTER SIRE
With the beautiful type, scope, quick reactions, and correct gaits, it is no surprise that Quite Easy offspring have become a top consideration for hunter riders. The 2015 show season proved to be an exceptional year for the Quite Easy offspring, earning Quite Easy the coveted position as the USEF Leading Hunter Sire. While it takes the results of many offspring to earn this status, there were definitely a few offspring that shone especially brightly this year. Susan Baker’s Q (ds. Ahorn) racked up top ribbons at major shows across the country in the Second Year Green Hunter under Peter Pletcher’s guidance and in Amateur-Owner Hunters with Susan. In the Junior Hunters, Pamela Kahn’s Quite Ruffy (ds. Krocket) and Tyler Petrie earned numerous championships and top ribbons at the Washington International, Pennsylvania National, and The National Horse Show. Over Fences Farm’s Quite Chocolate (ds. Elmshorn) had a successful year in the High Performance Hunters under Maria Rassmussen, and once again competed at the USHJA International Hunter Derby Championships. The beautiful Quasar (ds. Calido I), owned and bred by Laura Connaway, consistently earned top ribbons in the Adult Amateur Hunters. It’s rewarding to see both the US-bred and imported Quite Easy offspring competing with excellent success.
1Breeder: Harm Thörmahlen
Quite Easy is an example of one of Harm Thörmahlen’s favourite crosses – Quidam over his home bred Holstein mares. He is out of Birte II – by Landgraf and out of U-Capitol, the full sister to Capitol.
Once again, we have a discrepancy between the ‘blurb’ and the reality. While Quite Easy is sometimes described as successful at Grand Prix level, I can find no trace of him on the usually authoritative sja.it database. There is no doubt that ridden by Peter Eriksson, Quite Easy was 2nd in Sweden’s outdoor championships and was the winner of Sweden’s 7-8 Year Old Championships.
Quite Easy’s first foal crop went through the national performance testing for 3-year-olds in 2002, a test for all stallions’ progeny in both jumping and dressage. Of 48 foals born to his first foal crop, 14 were presented in the performance testing and 12 received Class 1 awards. Six of these received awards for jumping and three were highlighted with dressage awards. Quite Easy’s multi-talented son Qalle passed his stallion licensing in 2003, with high marks and went on to stand at Flyinge in Sweden.
Quite Easy has had Class 1 foals at all foal championships: the filly Philippa S (dam sire Caretino) won Sweden’s 2001 National Championship in Tingsryd. From the results of the 2003 Three-Year Old Performance Tests in Sweden, Quite Easy demonstrated a 70% rate of producing premium jumping offspring and 64% premium offspring in dressage. Quite Easy’s daughter Quillabamba J was the Champion three year-old jumping mare in 2003.
In Sweden, Quite Easy is the only stallion with winners in both dressage and jumping, ranking 3rd for dressage, and 2nd for jumping. In yet another of those global moves, 2007 saw a swap – the exciting young French jumping stallion, Jaguar Mail went to Flyinge to be ridden by Peter Eriksson – with instant success taking out the stallion championship at Lanaken before going on to represent Sweden at the Beijing Games – while Quite Easy came to Bernard le Courtois’ Brullemail Stud in France.
He had already been available through frozen semen and his first French foals were born in 2005. According to Bernard: “Everyone is unanimous when judging their model. Several of the top breeders have already used him in 2004 & 2005 and have bred some beautiful foals. His foal Ramses Paluel was placed 4th at the French Championships for foals in 2005.”
As usual M le Courtois is fairly frank, even in the assessment of his own: “Quite Easy has seen a fabulous success throughout Europe and the demand was immediate when he came onto the French market since 2004. He is a pretty bay horse of an average size and very easy to breed with. He is athletic, well balanced out, with a beautiful top line and strong hips. He is virile but with a very handsome head (even though he is blind in one eye). Like many Quidam sons he could use a bit more bone. He develops a remarkable step, a very light and lovely airy trot and an excellent balanced and energetic gallop. When jumping he is very elastic with a good technique, with quick reactions and strength in his back. His products look very much like their father in every way.”
In 2013, Quite Easy was represented by some interesting performers. At Drammen***, there was Easy Contact (out of an Electro mare) with Mariano Maggi, 3rd in the 1.50 class and Miebello (Cardento) and Johan Lundh, 21st in the Grand Prix. Quiet Riot (Cortez) and Fabio Crotto, 9thin a 1.45 at Copenhagen. Spike Jones was a member of the Swedish Team that finished ninth in the Nations Cup at Rome with Sandra Carlsson. Qurint (Cardento) was 4th in a 1.50 class at Rome with Olivier Phillipaerts. Rico Revel (Zeppeln) won a 1.50 class at Canteleu CSI*** and was a member, with Eduardo Alvarez Aznar, of the Spanish team that finished 10th at the Lisbon Nations Cup. Quite Quick (A’Khan) and Karina Rie Truelsen won the six bar at Sopot***.
The star of the bunch was Harrie Smolders’ Jackson Hole (Robin I Z) who won the 6 bar at Vienna and was second in the Grand Prix.
