Belissima. Beautiful. Wunderschön. A real lady.
Belissima’s performance horse ancestry and prestigious pedigree give her the perfect gene mix.
For many years Vivant van de Heffinck has been one of the best international jumping stallions in the world. This impressive horse jumped many Grand Prix tracks with Australian rider Chris Chugg. He then became a Nations Cup and 2012 Olympics horse for Ukraine-based German rider Katharina Offel. Vivant has a very interesting pedigree. He was sired by Fuego du Prelet, a horse with an Almé Z lineage that competed at 1.60m level with Dirk Demeersman. Grey Holstein stallion Cento (Capitol I – Caletto II) was one of Germany’s most successful-ever jumping horses in partnership with German national trainer Otto Becker. They won a team Olympic gold medal and came fourth in the individual competition at the Sydney Games in 2000, team bronze at the 2004 Olympics, a gold medal at European Championships in 2003. They were also winners of the World Cup final in 2002, the Aachen Grand Prix in 2000 and the Calgary Grand Prix in 2003. But Cento wasn't just a famous competition horse, he is also a famous sire. Cento‘s many progeny in Germany have already amassed more than one million euros in prize money. Belissima’s pedigree is refined by Baloubet du Rouet, the phenomenal sire and one-of a kind jumping horse.
Belissima is a beautifully athletic mare with a powerful take-off, a dynamic action and plenty of ability. She has faultless technique, unlimited scope and lightning-fast reactions. She has the muscular and athletic build to be a great show jumper, and she always makes the jumps look incredibly easy. Belissima even has the perfect temperament: always focused, willing and calm.
Belissima is no stranger to national and international showgrounds and she’s already built up an impressive track record: 75% of her international rounds have been clear and she’s won four international youngster tour classes. On top of that she’s been placed in international and national classes for young horses up to 1.30m.
Her pedigree is everything a rider could want.
Three Grand Prix horses in one superstar. Belissima.
