|I'M QUITE DASHING CSF
2018 SELLE FRANCAIS COLT
QUITE EASY X AMARETTO D'ARCO
Fancy hunter-jumper prospect
|Super-social, brave, sensible and balanced, I’M
QUITE DASHING CSF was bred with the American
amateur hunter-jumper market in mind. His
pedigree includes some of the most successful
European bloodlines: Quidam de Revel, Darco,
Rosire. Like his dam and granddam (both have
been trained by this colt’s breeder/owner), “Dash”
shows all the promise of being just as sound-
minded and athletic. We have been so impressed
with this colt’s superior disposition and also his
conformation. His natural inclination to jump the
smallest things is QUITE amusing.
Dash’s sire, Quite Easy is the current #1 USEF
Hunter sire although he, himself competed in grand
prix jumpers up to 1.50m. Interestingly, maybe the
best attestation to Quite Easy’s superior “heart”, he
was a successful showjumper with just one eye.
Quite Easy is known to bring scope, carefulness
and willingness to work to his offspring. Trainers
consistently describe Quite Easy’s offspring as very
rideable, sensible and barn favorites.
His dam’s sire, Amaretto D’Arco by Darco, stood at
Spy Coast Farm (Lexington, KY) was an alternate
for the London Olympic team (2010) with Shane
Sweetnam. He competed on Nations Cup teams
and was successful internationally at 1.60m.
Although Amaretto D’Arco had only a small number
of offspring before he died at the young age of 14,
they have been consistently rideable and careful.
Emmaretto CSF, Dash’s dam, is only 4 years old
but showed tremendous willingness under saddle
during her initial training at 3.
Dash has had a preliminary PPE and was found to
be normal. Expected height at maturity: 16.1-16.2h.
Price includes care through weaning and
registration with SF and lifetime registration with
