Belissimo (Beltrain/ St Pr ST Roxa) needs no introduction. One of the most brilliantly talented and successful breeding stallions in the world.
Belissimo M himself was a model student under saddle: Top auction horse, record breaking stallion performance test winner, Bundeschampion, finalist at the World Championship for young dressage horses. In recognition of his breeding significance Belissimo M has been honoured in a way that only a few top stallions have: He now is allowed to perform as a representative of his homeland, as Belissimo NRW.
His sons and daughters caused a sensation. Until the end of the last year Belissimo already presented 30 licensed sons, including numerous premium stallions, e.g. in Hanover (310,000 euro top prized Bentley), Oldenburg, Westphalia, Austria – there Bellheim became the 2009
Champion Stallion. After only three years in breeding there are already 51 state premium mares, including Champion Mares in Hanover and Bavaria as well as the 2009 Champion Mare of Westphalia, Brilliante.
As sire of rideability he eclipses all 8 stallion performance test winners and 3 vice performance test winners from his first three crops are possibly a world record! In addition, 3 Bundeschampions and Blickpunkt a celebrated bronze medal winner at the World Championship for young dressage horses in Verden 2009 – 5 offspring from his first crop (2004) were nominated for the World Championship! Further winners of championships (South Germany, Switzerland, USA) and many high priced auction horses world-wide – Belissimo M resoundingly stamps his foals with equestrian qualities for the highest demands. According to FN’s estimated breeding value statistics 2009 he is ranked fifth nationwide as a dressage sire with 169 points. This resounding inheritance is the result of systematic performance breeding
