Brilliantly HW already scored up to 76% in Dressage Horse classes (A-level), he loves to show!

Brilliantly HW, a young super star, flashy, fancy and oh so pretty! His sire Ballettmeister won the dressage portion of his performance test with a score of 146.42. This is not surprising, since he is a son of Brentano II, noted sire of dressage excellence. We also think of Brentina and Debbie Mc Donald if it comes to Brentano blood, it's proven to work perfectly in breeding and competitions. Brentano II has sired the fabulous Olympian, Brentina, and her full brother, Barclay. Ballettmeister is out of a full sister to the also-excellent dressage sire, Wokentanz, who has a sire production index of 157 for dressage, with a 97% heritability. You will find no better genetics for dressage production than the combination found in this talented young stallion.


Ballettmeister is by the Hanoverian stallion of the year 2003, Brentano II.

The Celle state stud stallion Brentano II is the Hanoverian stallion of the year 2003. At the Verden stallion licensing, the chestnut stallion was awarded this prestigious title. His breeder, Dr. Max Schulz-Stellenfleth, Stellenfleth, was honored with a check for EURO 10,000.00 and a valuable Wohlklang-statuette. The Uelzener insurance company always generously supports this award that honors important Hanoverian stallions who have a tremendous influence on the breed. In 1983, Brentano II was born on Dr. Max Schulz-Stellenfleth's farm in Kehdingen. His dam, the Grande-daughter Glocke, descends from one of the most important mare families in Hanover, going back to the Schumann-daughter S449. The stallions Garibaldi I and II, Wolkenstein I and II and Beltain as well as Beauvalais, one of the internationally most successful dressage horses with Beatriz Ferrer-Salat, belong to this equine family. Recently, Beltain caused a sensation in Warendorf: Under Holga Finken, his son Belissimo M became federal champion of three-year-old stallions. After having won the stallion licensing, Brentano II moved to the Celle National Stud. At his stallion performance test, he presented the best dressage performances, and with a final score of 129,97, he ranked second. One year later, he achieved the fourth place at the Federal Championships of the German Riding Horse. He is trained up to advanced dressage level, and he has been belonging to the Celle Quadrilles for years now. Since 1987, he has been stationed in Artland, first in Natbergen, later on at the Ankum insemination station. That is were Brentano II met suitable mares. The chestnut stallion is the sire of 68 state premium mares and 15 licensed stallions. In 2000, his daughter Bona Dea II left the Ratje-Niebuhr-Show as the winning mare. Together with her full sister Bona Dea, she won the Ratje-Niebuhr-Prize. Brentano II supplied totally 19 horses for elite auctions, among them the first-class horses Brentina, Brasseur P, Bandito and Bon Jovi. At the World Equestrian Games in Jerez, Brentina won the team bronze medal under the American Debbie McDonald. Her right brother Barclay is just about to start his international career with Gonnelien and Sven Rothenberger. In the youngster division, Bernstein and Christian Ritter are a successful and important equine pair. This year, Bon Jovi was especially successful: He won the federal championship title of four-year-old horses in Warendorf. Apart from that, he is the dam's sire of the Brandenburg mare Poetin who is on everyone's lips after having won the World Breeding Championships Dressage of Young Horses and the Federal Championships. Brentano II is a dressage stallion with an exemplary inheritance, and his dressage breeding evaluation reaches the above-average mark of 137 points. With his successful offspring, he is one of the sons of the trademark stallion Bolero who ensured a revival of this bloodline in sport. Thus in October, Bonaparte (Heike Kemmer) was awarded the most successful dressage horse of the world.

 Westerland :

Brilliantly HW, an absolute dream horse! Very noble gray eye catcher, his fur shimmers in all kinds of gray and bronze colors and with his black forelock; he for sure catches the attention of the audience. This horse will blow everybody away with his freedom in the shoulders and a very strong motor and active hind leg. We love his elegant movement and his modern built, there are many reasons to look forward to a bright future in the highest levels of dressage with this young gentleman.

He has definitely three above average gaits, all clear and already well balanced with a good rhythm. Victory at 1st Level, solid at 2nd, training 3rd, many ribbons against huge competitions, successfully shown.

He is a dream for every rider, fun every day, over and over again. Well behaved at the show grounds, a huge love all around.

Brilliantly HW is a horse that does what he is asked to do. Nothing seems too much for him and he always gives 100% and more. He has super nerves and perfect ride ability. Friendly and sane in the barn and under saddle, he is a magnet for everybody alike. Vivienne Wiederhold (age 20) saw him in Germany and she is still begging to have him imported for her, his color, attitude, character, just everything about him is mesmerizing. If she'd have more time (she is in college and has a job), he'd already be here!

He has tons of airtime and hang time, floats above the ground and is a teddy bear that loves to cuddle and have his own person to take care of him. He has the energy to do it all, but he is relaxed enough to concentrate and be safe and reliable.

With Brilliantly HW, there is no limit to any level, he will compete in the big ring and he will be a phenomenal FEI horse. Judges will love and remember him with his fancy color, you can be sure to attract the attention. He is very elastic and a fast learner, he works with schwung and ease.

He'll make the perfect horse for everybody alike, for a young rider, an adult amateur, a professional (professionals want sane horses too!!!) or even an older person looking for the perfect young horse for the future, without sacrificing the super gaits and the ability to go all the way to the top with a future FEI horse.

This horse is a true diamond in the rough, he loves to learn, is easy to sit and light in the hand. He is a safe horse, especially for his age and gets even ridden without the fuzz of longing first.

He works as well inside the covered arena as he does in the outside arena. After his workout, he gets to go with long reins around the barn and loves it. Brilliantly is used to go in the hot walker, loves his solarium time and grooming is his favorite! He stands for the farrier, loads and bathing is fun for him too. Super uncomplicated, a truly rare find.
