Combining two of the most successful, modern dressage lines in a beautiful package, Fuerst Belissaro is a stallion who is always motivated and moves with elasticity.
His active hind leg, freedom through the shoulder in trot, the perfect walk, and uphill canter won everybody over at his licensing, and he received a 9.0 for character and good scores at his 70-Day stallion performance test taken at the young age of three.
His sire, Fuerstenball was champion of his licensing and performance test. His excellent gaits, 9.5 for trot, 10.0 for walk, 9.0 for canter made him the champion of the Oldenburg championships for young dressage horses and the German champion of the 5 year old stallions.
From his first offspring, Fuerstenball produced the champion stallion, Follow Me, who became the price highlight (400,000 Euros) at the Oldenburg Stallion Days 2012 in Vechta. In Verden in 2013, Fürstenball presented four licensed stallions, including Fuerst Belissaro and the price highlight Farrell (€ 460,000, Blue Hors Stud). Ten sons have been licensed so far.
At the German Foal Championships in Lienen he presented the Champion Colt as well as another son in the top ten. For years he has produced top foals, which have been sold many times in the six-figure price bracket at German auction sites.
His first offspring won young horses competitions in 2014 and have brought their father with 170 points to be amongst the top 1% of the FN's breeding value index list.
The offpring of Fuerst Belissaro's dam sire, Belissimo M, have also set records: Nine stallion performance test winners and three reserve performance test winners from the first few crops is probably a world record! In addition, there are five Bundeschampions and, with Blickpunkt, there is a double bronze medal winner of the World Championships for young dressage horses in Verden. Currently, Callaho's Benicio - the eponymous hero of the 2011 Hanoverian licensing in Verden – became, with fantastic scores, Bundeschampion of the six-year-old dressage horses in Warendorf. Benicio also won his stallion performance test with 9.88 in dressage (a 10.0 for trot, walk and canter each) and an 8.43 for jumping.
Belissimo M has produced more championship winners, and many highly priced auction horses such as his daughter, Belandra, who sold for 572,000 Euro to Denmark at the PSI Auction in Ankum. All are the result of Belissimo M's resounding inheritance of riding quality. In 2011, his oldest offspring competed in the advanced class for the first time – already five of them were successful at this stage, several times even as winners.
This resounding heredity transmission is the result of systematic performance breeding. Belissimo M's sire, Beltain, was himself successful in the dressage arena up to advanced (S) class and originates from one of the most successful mare lines of Hanover. His dam is full sister of the Celle State Stud sires, Garibaldi I and II, and granddam of Wolkenstein I and II as well as of the Grand Prix dressage horse Little Big Man, the Celle State Stud sires Brentano I and II, as well as Beauvalais who was the 2002 World Equestrian Games silver medalist, and 2004 Olympic bronze medalist.
The dam of Fuerst Belissaro was also very successful in her mare performance test. Her dam line has already brought internationally successful sport horses like Codex One and Airway.
