(AES & Breeders Elite Graded stallion)

Sire of many successful International Showjumpers

168cm, 16:2hh Bay (1997)

STUD FEE: £500


Bred by Paul Schockemohle and one of the few stallions in the UK branded with the famous “Z” from the Zangersheide stud.

DICK Z  was purchased by a syndicate as a 2 year old, and was later owned by C. A. M. VAN DE OETELAAR BV, the owner of the world famous Concorde & Oklund, and producer and finder of some of the best horses the International circuit has seen.

Dick Z, was graded in Europe and was competing very successfully, until a tragic accident ended his competitive life. He then retired to Stud in Holland, before being imported to the UK in 2004, to stand with us here at Greenvale Stud.

He is an amazingly handsome horse with an intelligent and kind temperament. His full sister  was an Internationally successful mare as too were his Sires and Dam; Quick Roxan. His natural ability over a fence is outstanding with a back leg action that leaves you in awe, this seems to be inherited by all his progeny, as too are his extravagant paces and natural athleticism. There are few horses that can credit such impeccable bloodlines and proven talent and I feel honoured to own one of them.

  • The Anglo European Studbook  & Breeders Elite stallion DICK Z is a product of the Hanoverian sire DROSSAN. This son of DROSSELKLANG II is a highly promising sire because of his large number of talented offspring in German Show jumping.

    At the Verden stallion licensing in 1986 DROSSELKLANG II finished in first place in the jumping with a jumping index of 141.54.

    He is one of the last sons of DON CARLOS in the Hanoverian breed, who himself was one of the most successful of Hanoverian jumping horses after World War II, producing over 283 principal studbook mares, of whom 43 went on to become states premium mares, 24 approved stallion sons and 467 competition horses who won close to DM1,300,000 in prize money.

    DROSSELKLANG II was one of his most famous sons and at the 2001 stallion licensing in Verden he was declared the Hanoverian stallion of the year.

    He is sire of three licensed sons; DAGOMBA, DON PAPAS and DROSSAN. The Don Carlos group from the famous Hanoverian “D- line” is remarkable because you find horses of good “modern type ” conformation, from very old Hanoverian bloodlines with hardly any Thoroughbred influence.

    DICK Z is out of the mare QUICK ROXANNE (who retired to stud with us here), she competed 1:30’s and 1:40’s in the US and in Europe and had scope to burn, says her previous owner.

    She is daughter of the world famous QUICK STAR, who needs little introduction. This miraculous jumping stallion belongs amongst the most legendary sires of the 90’s.

    Under his rider Meredith Michaels, QUICK STAR accumulated an impressive track record in International Show jumping, earning en amazing 375,000,000 Euros.

    He is the son of two international Show jumpers GALOUBET A and STELLA.

    In present day Show jumper horse breeding, QUICK STAR (View video) is considered to be one of the best progenitors, being recognized by 21 stud books.

    He is the sire of the record breaking PSI horse fetching 8,5000,000 French Francs. Quick Star is not only world famous for his own achievements but for producing some of the current international winners that shine in show jumping circuits all over the world, notably: SPHRELLA STELLA, the CSIO internationally winning mare; QUILOT Z, QUIKSY, QUICK SILVER Z, QUICK LAURO Z and QUEBEC.

    The dam’s line goes back via the Hanoverian stallions GLETSCHER (GLANDER-GRANDE), LUGANO (LUGANO II – DER LOWE XX) and DUFT II (DUELLANT) to the reputable state premium mare ADELSFREUDE (ABHANG II)

    This big Hanoverian family has also produced many world famous licensed stallions and QUICK STAR is Sire of Nick Skeltons Twice Olympic Gold winning stallion BIG STAR.
