Cor de la Bryere:
Cor de la Bryère (1968-2000), nicknamed "Corde", is one of the most influential sires in modern warmblood breeding, the stallion that revolutionised jumping horse breeding. He is known as the "Reserve Stallion of the Century", second only to Landgraf I. His name astute breeders like to see, especially on the mare line for 'Cord' tends to give great form over a jump. He stood 16.2½ hh (169 cm). 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: 'The 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.'
