Anna-Katharina Vogel's successful mare Quintana P by Quality - Landor S retires

"I will never have a horse like you again". - this is what Anna-Katharina Vogel says about her successful mare DSP Quintana P.

"Quinn", as she is affectionately called, was able to achieve numerous successes with her rider Anna-Katharina Vogel, from her first novice-level eventing to a 5* placement.

Anna writes on her Instagram page:

"Quinn you're my once in a lifetime horse. My best friend, my partner in crime. You are everything for me and means the whole world to me. You are a queen and real rockstar.
I hoped this day would never come. But I only want what's best for you. You more than deserve a healthy retirement. And I think now is the time after a very little bone injury on the field. no worries she is healthy and happy and can still gallops across the fields. But she didn't deserves after everything she did to go another season next year with 17 years.
I want to give you back everything you have given me for the last 11 years."

The mare is sired by Quality out of Lady Sunshine P, who herself was successful up to CIC3* and is by Landor S - Frühlingsbote. The dam line goes back to the thoroughbred mare Orientsonne xx. The line has already produced numerous internationally successful eventing and show jumping horses and is cared for by the Pfitzmann family in Linde, Brandenburg.

"Almost exactly ten years ago, in the middle of August 2013, Anna-Katharina Vogel and Quintana took part in their first international eventing in Hambach and finished with their dressage result. The next milestone was the first two-star placement, in 2014 in Montelibretti (ITA). In 2017, the first three-star (now 4*) entries followed - and placings.

Then, two years later, the first big highlight: the first Senior European Championships in Luhmühlen, where they finished a strong 14th after a sensational cross-country round and fault-free jumping with their dressage result.

And finally, the first five-star event in 2022 in Pau. Here too: no obstacle faults in the cross-country. In the end they were placed eleventh. A great success!"
