About - Bravissimo is a long legged yet compact stallion with outstanding suppleness and natural energy in all his paces. He has particular expression in his well balanced canter. His father Belissimo brings a great temperament which allows his offspring to be trained to their highest potential.
Performance - Bravissimo was Westphalian champion stallion at his licensing in 2006, and at the 2007 30-day performance test in Münster-Handorf he gained maximum marks for all three gaits, rideability and character. He won a Bundeschampionate qualifier to complete his licensed status, and has since been successfull up to Inter II under Johanna Klippert, and at grand prix with Ryuma Hieda.
Sire - His sire Belissimo M is a renowned sire of grand prix horses, famous for passing his good temperament, his rideability, and a pretty face! He competed at top level himself, and his offspring include Bella Rose, who was not only part of the gold medal-winning German team at the 2014 World Equestrian Games, but returned at the 2018 World Equestrian Games to lead both the Grand Prix and the Grand Prix Special on scores of over 84%. Belissimo also has five licensed grand prix sons; Biedermeier, Bestseller Royale, Benicio, Benidetto, and Barclay 20, and has produced more than a dozen grand prix horses.
Damline - Dam Lady Sinclair is a full-sister of the grand prix stallion Leroy 160, who competes for Japan, and she has also produced the licensed Totilas son, Tiesto. Third dam Cindy is full-sister to the dam of Isabel Werth's fantastic Bella Rose (by Belissimo), making Bravissimo closely related to this superb mare. The wider damline has produced the grand prix dressage horse Pirboy, licensed stallions Rock Me Amadeus, Gordon Gekko, and Quiram Jmen, and several grand prix jumping horses.
Progeny - From a small number of offspring, Bravissimo has a licensed son, Bond, who has competed up to small tour level, and Bobby Brown, who competes at Junior level under Katie Davies.
