Bojidar


Value
$17,000


Donated By
Butternut Ridge

When it comes to the finest bloodlines, this lovely filly’s pedigree is that of a superstar. Bojidar is a dark bay 2013 filly sired by Belissimo M while her dam is a premium mare by Sandro Hit - Rotspon. Born in May 2013, she is a very elegant filly with excellent conformation, a beautiful face, gentle eye and fantastic temperament. She is very friendly and a beautiful mover with three expressive gaits. She would make a super dressage prospect or lovely sport horse.

Sire: Belissimo M

Bojidar’s sire, Belissimo M, is a record-breaking stallion performance test winner of the Bundeschampion and a finalist at the FEI World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses. He competed successfully at the Grand Prix level. Many of his offspring have gone on to be stallion performance test winners of the Bundeschampion as well as winners at the FEI World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses and are now entering the Grand Prix level.

Belissimo M (Born 1999) Beltain - Romadour II - Lucius xx

  • Record setting scores in 30 day performance test
  • Bundeschampion Stallion 2003
  • Nine stallions from Belissimo M were performance test champions
  • Sired five Bundeschampions and, with Blinkpunkt, won double bronze medals at the FEI World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses
  • Another son, Callaho’s Benicio, was Six-Year-Old Bundeschampion scoring 9.88 in dressage at his stallion performance test, including a perfect 10 for his trot
  • Sired many high-bid auction horses including Belandra, who sold for 572,000 Euros at the PSI Auction

One of his off-spring, Bella Rose 2, competed at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France, under Isabell Werth as part of the winning German team. Bella Rose 2’s score was an impressive 81.5%.

Dam: Senora

Bojidar’s dam, Senora, is sired by superstar stallion Sandro Hit, often described as a Thoroughbred type with the most modern conformation. Sandro Hit’s unwavering breeding success has yielded numerous Bundeschampions, FEI World Breeding Dressage Champions, Grand Prix winners, and World Cup Finalists over the years.

Sandro Hit’s offspring are harmonious, strong, uphill, expressive movers and are gifted with great attitudes and charisma. His breeding record is apparent in many of the top horses we see today. Many of his progeny have won not only international Grand Prix classes, but gone on to be World Cup winners and Olympic stars. In 2010, 2011 and 2012, Sandro Hit won the USEF/Performance Horse Registry Leading Sire Award as best dressage sire in the United States. To date, Sandro Hit has delivered 11 Bundeschampions. Sandro Hit himself was the striking Bundeschampion and the Six-Year-Old FEI World Breeding Dressage Champion.

Rotspon, Bojidar’s grand sire on her dam’s side, was the sovereign winner of the stallion performance test in 1998, earning a top score of 148.82 points in the dressage category.

This exceptionally well-bred filly will make a wonderful addition to any program as an outstanding Dressage competition horse, hunter, or future broodmare for either the professional or amateur rider.
