Cor de la Bryere
Cor de la Bryere has been described by breeders as a "gift from heaven". Cor de la Bryere has been especially successful producing jumping horses, as he passes on his incredible bascule, scope and jumping technique. Cor de la Bryere also passed on his willingness and trainability. Romedio Graf von Thun Hohenstein described the stallion "his arching back, like a taut band of steel, combined with the super elastic end gives limitless, but always expedient, springing capability to the natural dynamics of each effort. Add to that ease of riding, marvelous disposition and a floating, highly balanced canter. These qualities are absolutely to the benefit of young horses, who will no longer have to pay with premature breakdowns caused by jumping and showing solely with a raw, crude jumping talent."
He has over 85 Approved sons and 86 State Premium Mares.
