Already as a young stallion Belissimo M gave prove of his outstanding qualities: Top auction horse, record breaking stallion performance test winner, Bundeschampion, finalist at the World Championship for young dressage horses. After a longer sport break he started in 2011 directly at the advanced (S) level and achieved straight away victories and placings in Grand-Prix classes under Hayley Beresford. He finished the Olympic qualification for London 2012 as best horse of the Australian team.
As riding horse maker, Belissimo M set records: Nine stallion performance test winners and four vice performance test winners among 46 licensed stallions are probably world record! 85 state premium mares, among them, champion mares in Hanover, Bavaria and Westphalia as well as the 2012‘ Rhineland Champion Mare speak for his stability in inheritance. In addition, there are five Bundeschampions and, with Blickpunkt, there is a double bronze medal winner of the World Championship for young dressage horses in Verden. Callaho‘ Benicio became with fantastic scores Bundeschampion of six-year old dressage horses in Warendorf in 2011. Further winners of championships and many high-priced auction horses worldwide – with 572,000 Euro (Denmark) his daughter Belandra was one of the top horses at the PSI in Ankum – are caused by Belissimo M‘s resounding inheritance of riding quality. In 2011, his oldest offspring could compete in the advanced (S) class for the first time – already 15 of them were successful at this stage in 2012, several times even as winners. Meanwhile, there is even a Grand Prix winner, named Bella Rose under Isabell Werth, among them!
According to FN’s estimated breeding value statistics he is positioned, for years, nationwide among the top sires as dressage sire (153 index points in 2012) – and this also with a positive breeding value for the inheritance of jumping (106 points). The Hanoverian estimated breeding value statistics place him with 147 points for the dressage quality of his performance tested daughters with the very best – and that with impressive evaluations also for the inheritance of riding horses (142 points) as well as the fundament (159 points!).
This resounding inheritance is the result of systematic performance breeding. The 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; also the Celle State Stud sires Brentano I and II as well as Beauvalais (e.g. 2002‘ vice world champion in Jerez, Olympic bronze medal in Athens 2004) belong to them. Belissimo‘s dam Roxa produced, when bred to Boss, three in dressage up to advanced (S) level successful full siblings: Bonnie Bianco, Baccarole and Boutique.
As recognition of his breeder’s significance Belissimo M has been honoured in a way that only a few top stallions has been given to: He now is allowed to perform as representative of his homeland, as Belissimo NRW! Also the Holsteiner Verband honoured his extraordinary breeding qualities already in 2010 and granted him exceptionally the approval to breed Holsteiner mares as a sire of a foreign blood-line.
He has 22 licensed sons (Han) 51 state premium mares, and 73 auction horses.
