Imported from Sweden as an unbroken 2yo. Byalee Briar is an amazing opportunity to acquire a highly sought-after European pedigree without the frozen hassle! Bjorsells Briar 899 was for 7 years a legend, the world’s number one dressage breeding stallion!
On the dam line, Byalee Briar is out of a Bernstein mare, Bernstein being another Swedish warmblood stallion and sire of many approved stallions, with offspring in Grand Prix in Europe and the US. Bernstein was stallion of the year in Sweden and now has offspring with amazing piaffe and passage.
Both Bjorsells Briar and Bernstein are elite-listed performance stallions and together these bloodlines have now produced Byalee Briar, who is just beginning to develop what will be an amazing competition trot. He has inherited Briar’s incredible uphill canter with strong shoulder and knee action, and shows that ever-essential correct walk. 

Bjorsell Briar 899 

Ranked World #23 dressage sire! A proven competitor and sire, Briar offers breeders the full package. He is a medium weight stallion, with long elegant lines, length of back and very correct conformation.
“I would give my soul for this horse” Kyra Kyrklund speaks of Bjorsells Briar 899

Bjorsells Briar 899 Performance
Briar was approved after his stallion test in 1995. He scored the second highest total points 57,2 and had the best scores that year for ridability. In 2006 Briar became Elite.
Briar was placed in all starts in the Championships for young horses as a 5-, 6- and 7-year old. He went to 8 World Cup finals, he has 7 gold medals from the Swedish Championships, and he did all the Equestrian Games during the last 10 years including 2 World European Equestrian Games and 3 Olympic Games. He also participated in the world’s largest outdoor competition, Aachen in Germany, 10 years in a row, and won the Grand Prix 2005. He has had 16 international wins at Grand Prix level.
Briar has been the highest ranked dressage stallion (sports results) in the world almost continuously during 8 years. Together with his rider Jan Brink, they have been the most successful international couple historically in Sweden, regardless of discipline. No other horse in Sweden has ever come close to these results. Briar did his last competiton in Las Vegas 2009, that was his 8th World Cup Final.

Briar’s pedigree is a combination of Swedish Warmblood and Hanoverian champion lines, with a touch of Thoroughbred. His sire, Magini 695, was by the Elite stallion Maraton 600, who fathered numerous Grand Prix dressage and show jumping horses, 6 Approved stallions and 54 Diploma mares.
Briar’s dam’s line, includes the outstanding mare, Medea who was by Gaspari 340, one of the most famous horses in the history of dressage stallions. He sired the legendary Piaff, who won the individual Gold Medal at the Munich Olympics in 1972.

Briar has produced over 10 Approved stallions in 4 different countries. Of these, 2 sons have been stallion test winners in Sweden. He has also produced a large number of Diploma mares.
Briar is the 2015 World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses #23 Dressage Sire. He is known for his temperament, strength and movement, which he consistently passes onto his offspring. Many of his offspring compete at Grand Prix level in both dressage and show jumping!

Byalee Briar won a bronze medal from Dressage NSW for his achievements at medium level in 2013/2014 and qualified for the National Dressage Championships at advanced level with an average of 65%. He is schooling in piaffe and passage and tempui changes. So quiet he can be campaigned by a teenage pony clubber, and his babies are friendly with great conformation and amazing movement. He jumps, practises polocrosse, and rides out like a gelding babysitting the young horses. His youngsters are a joy to ride. And as a bonus, Byalee Briar is a palomino, with the colour dating back eight generations of Swedish warmbloods. Now AWHA, ISSA and palomino registered.
