Dante FQ a seven-year-old Friesian stallion, bred and raised by Tammy Hildreth and Robert Hildreth DVM, Friesian Quest LLC, in Southern California, brings into focus the amazing athleticism and versatility of a breed whose athletic talent is often overpowered by its stunning beauty. At 17.2-hands, Dante certainly has the beauty but his physical appearance is only secondary to his proven performance ability.

A charismatic and formidable competitor, Dante started his show career as a three-year-old winning the 2004 IFSHA Western States Regional's, Grand Show Champion In-hand. In 2005-2007 Dante then campaigned in saddle seat, winning Horse of the Year titles from both IFSHA and the USEF. Dante continued his saddle seat career winning the 2007 IFSHA World and Grand National Championship Show, as World Champion Park Horse & Senior Stallion In-Hand. In the same month as the IFSHA World Show, Dante was presented to the FPZV and was chosen to go to the FPZV 50-day Stallion Performance Test, where he demonstrated his skills in driving, dressage and cross-country jumping to achieve his status as an Approved Friesian breeding stallion. In typical Dante fashion, he won the driven dressage competition, and his overall scores once again placed in the position of the Champion Stallion among the rarified peers of stallions competing for approval.

Dante's career and success is owed not only to his stunning talent, but also to the dedication of his owners. The Hildreth's have never stopped to consider what a Friesian should do, but have continually looked to allow Dante to compete where his talent lead them. In one year, Dante moved with the grace of a true dressage horse and the courage of a jumper into 15 championship titles in 2008, among them hunter pleasure/hack mount. A phenomenal ambassador for the Friesian breed, Dante embodies the qualities of all great horses: presence, courage, determination and most of all heart. For all who questioned what a Friesian can do, Dante has proven that not only can Friesian's compete, but they can excel in and transition virtually to any discipline. Dante always delights the eye, but he has proven he can move the soul.

A small example of the magnificent horses owned and bred by Friesian Quest.
It is one thing to be born of royal blood and from champion stock, but it is quite the other to be in pristine condition, trained and presented to the ultimate status of a winner.
At Friesian Quest no detail is taken for granted. All their horse are groomed and condition in Summerwinds Products, resulting in healthy, shinny coats, long breathtaking manes and tails, that sets them one step above the rest of their competition.
Summerwinds motto is: In a world of ordinary and conventional only the most distinctive will ever leave a truly lasting impression.
Friesian Quest without a doubt is truly leaving a lasting impression.
