Questing R is a fascinating addition to the Ryans' stallion band. He was bred by Michelle and Judith Buckley from Hunterveiw Stud, Scone and is by Quarterback, who carries the QuandoQuando bloodline. Quando Quando represented Australia in 2006 at the WEG in Aachen, Germany, and at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Quando has the most amazing temperament and this has found its way all the way down to Questing R. Quarterback, the sire of Questing R, was the Bundeschampion 3yr old riding horse. He scored a 10 for his rideablilty. On Quarterback's dam line is Poesie who is by Brentano II. Poesie is the mother of Poetin who won the Bundeschampion as a 3yo, 5yo and 6yo. Poetin sold for 2.5 million Euros!

Questing R's dam is by Brentano II out of a Wenzel mare. Brentano II is famous for producing international Grand Prix dressage horses including Brentina, winner of the World Cup Final in 2003 at Goteborg, Sweden. Right down the bottom of Questing R's pedigree is Stirling Desire, with Donnerhall, Pik Bube and Salute bloodlines. Questing R has more scope in all of his paces than previous stallions here at Ryan’s. Providing he can piaffe and passage as can the Regardez Moi and Jive Magic babies this could be our best stallion ever!

As an outcross for our broodmares he is perfect and already his competition career is stellar and has everyone talking. His first season competing has been 2016/2017 and he already boasts a massive 89% at Novice level. Questing R has gone through the 80% mark on two occasions and through the 70% mark on 12 occasions.  Massive over track in the walk, incredible balance, scope and bend in the trot and just the most beautiful beautiful canter and canter extensions. 

This may be the horse to put Australia on the map in the Olympic dressage arena!
