Byalee Wow Wie rw is a stunning stallion with extreme trainability, resulting in him scoring over 60% at Grand Prix at the age of 8, and placing at open CDI level at Medium Tour (Sydney CDI).
His talent and versatility come as no surprise, given that his sire, Wie Weltmeyer, was a Grand Prix showjumper and Grand Prix dressage horse before concentrating on the international dressage arena with UK rider Emma Hindle.
A compact and very attractive young colt by British Olympic Grand Prix sensation, Wie Weltmeyer, Wow simply oozes charm. His elastic and extravagant paces show scope in his movement with an exceptional hind leg and also free, flash front leg mechanics. Jumping is no problem either as his father, Wie Weltmeyer, was known to win 1.40m classes on alternate weekends to his FEI dressage commitments up until 1997! Wie Weltmeyer is a seriously versatile stallion that has crossed very well with the Australian thoroughbred mare Lawsuit.
This young stallion is an enormous asset for a smaller rider wanting a horse with versatility, scope, power and presence! One the judges and riders will love - and those after colour will note that his flaxen mane and tail are in fact white, so only time will tell what kinds of chrome may be achieved! Wow is that sought-after warmblood stallion, small enough to ride comfortably but offering Grand Prix dressage and jumping bloodlines ... fulfilling a popular niche market in Australia.
On top of all of that, Wow has a beautiful temperament and despite having mares in foal continues to act like a friendly labrador!
Wow's incredible trainability has flown
through the ranks from medium to advanced, on to Small Tour and Medium tour before
hitting Grand Prix just in time to place at his first CDI, Willinga CDI! Wow is campaigned by Dimity Lourey, and like mother, like daughter, she has completely
focused on training him to Grand Prix level. This is the first horse that
Dimity has trained herself to that level and he just keeps finding more gears
as they advance through the training! Wow is a stallion with a great
temperament, naturally sound, and although few people make this journey to
Grand Prix with success, he is one of those special horses! Wow’s dam
is the impeccably bred TB mare Law Suit, from the highly sought-after
bloodlines of Son In Law, Blue Peter, Precipitation and Vain. Wow’s offspring
are just under saddle with Byalee Wishes at just 4yo winning his first champion
dressage rugs with 14yo rider Tanisha Cragg and moving on to win at novice
level while Byalee Warlock is the new special partner of Kiwi Sarah Holmes and B.... is fresh back from the breaker and after a couple of months at Byalee is ridden by a 14yo schoolboy around the paddocks on his family property! We
find that Wow really does throw his amazing temperament and look forward to see
his youngstock advance to FEI.
'I think this is a high quality horse with a lot of potential,' wrote one FEI judge of Byalee Wow Wie rw back when he was beginning elementary. And they were right!
