Westpoint Quickfire passes on to his progeny attributes essential for today’s top performing showjumpers
- intelligent, sharp balanced reactions

Former Olympian and professional competition horse breeder Rowland Ferneyhough, is an admirer of Westpoint Quickfire, having bred numerous progeny by him.- to quote ”Progeny by Quickfire possess his impressive elasticity through the back, trainable willing temperament and in a positive manner his sharp reactions”.
