Fabienne QC, New Hanoverian Premium
Mare Candidate

September 2023

Continuing Tradition

As a foal, Fabienne QC was named Top Filly at the large AHS inspection at Hilltop Farm. As a three-year-old, she was Champion Hanoverian Mare of the Mid Atlantic Hanoverian Breeders Club Inspection with an overall 8, and this year she returned to Morven Park with glowing scores to complete her mare performance test and the first component of her Hanoverian Premium Mare title. As the first foal from our program, "Fiji" has done a wonderful job representing the Quantico name and this continued with her MPT scores.

Fabienne QC
Ridden by Breeder/Owner Quinnten Alston

Dream score of 9 on trot!

All Gait Scores Above 8

Presented under saddle by breeder and owner Quinnten Alston, she received the scores of 9 on trot, 8.5 on walk, and 8 on canter. Through the jump chute she was given a respectable 7 on both form and ability, and for rideability a 7.5, finishing on a super overall score of 7.67. Along with her inspection score of 8, this finishes the requirements for her Hanoverian Premium Mare Candidate title. We were super proud of this young mare in her first public outing under saddle and for answering all of the questions asked. She always tries for her rider and gives a wonderful feeling. The judges commented that this was one of the best MPTs they have observed here in the US!

A big thank you to our dear friend and eyes on the ground Hannah Heritage for being a part of the Quantico team for the weekend! We couldn't have achieved this success without your input. Also, much appreciation for the volunteers from both the Mid Atlantic Hanoverian Breeders Club and Morven Park for running a top notch event. We always love the environment here, catching up with the people, and the education this provides to our program. Now we can continue to focus on the future with this special homebred mare, both in performance and in breeding.
