Just a week after the announcement that Danish Olympian Anna Kasprzak parted ways with her rising Grand Prix horse Quarton, Danish born American Charlotte Jorst has added the 10-year old Swedish warmblood to her string of horses.
Quarton is bred by Per-Arne Persson and is by Quaterback x Don Schufro.
Under Finnish Yvonne Osterholm, Quarton competed at the 2014, 2015 and 2016 World Championships for young dressage horses. In 2014 he was 15th in the consolation finals as a 5-year old. In 2015 he finished 14th in the Finals as a 6-year old and in 2016 he was 13th in the Finals as a 7-year old. He also won the Swedish Young Horse Championships in 2015 and 2016.
After the 2016 Swedish Nationals he was sent to Helgstrand to be sold. In 2017 Bettina Jaeger competed Quarton in the small tour at the CDI Herning after which he sold to Kasprzak. Anna rode the gelding at the CDI's in Uggerhalne, Aachen and Herning that year. In November 2018 they made their international Grand Prix debut in Randbol with 69.913% and 70.596%.
Kasprzak swapped Quarton for Addict de Massa. Jorst has already bought numerous Grand Prix horses at Helgstrand Dressage: Nintendo, Akeem Foldager, Lorenzo , and Deep Impact. She has also sent a few horses back (Ray Dance, Lorenzo) and got new ones. Quarton is the latest addition.
"While I was in Denmark I tried this beautiful horse Quarton," said Jorst. "I had tried him before a couple of years ago but at that time not buy him. This time I did! I love this horse. He’s 10 and perfect in every way. This will be a great journey."
Jorst is the 2018 U.S. Grand Prix champion and currently U.S. team short-listed with Nintendo for the 2019 Pan American Games .
