Buckskin gelding 3/10/08 17.1hh
SOLD for $72,600 at Auction of the Stars December 2015
By Byalee Briar (imp) out of Byalee Miracle (Richmeed Medallion (imp)/Salute (imp)
Byalee Breathless justifies his name and must surely take your breath away. The horse is naturally soft and supple beyond what is normal … he is capable of being ridden by riders who are not lucky enough to have advanced riding skills, however, he is a horse that is particularly exciting for a rider with top-of-the-range skills because he can - and does - respond brilliantly with great expression. He shows sensational extensions, is showing signs of wonderful, wonderful flying changes, he is good in all the two-track work while the canter pirouettes and piaffe do look to be extraordinarily gifted. At his first medium competition Breathless won both tests and was champion medium horse. He is by Byalee Briar (imp), by the world’s top Grand Prix dressage stallion for seven years, Bjorsells Briar 899. His dam is Byalee Miracle, a full sister to Grand Prix champion Byalee Magic, sold for some $300,000. Miracle is by Grand Prix stallion Richmeed Medallion (imp) out of Stirling Savannah (Salute/ Ludendorf/Monopol, all imported). Breathless is genuine in all ways and we already know that we will be regretting selling him; we do however have the sire and dam! Breathless has the potential to be a truly international horse with an amazing future ahead of him.
