Baron is now sold to Mexican Olympic rider Berna Pujals. We wish them every success togerther and look forward to breeding from Baron in the future.
Baron de Ley is a beautiful dark bay stallion. He is licensed by the Oldenburg studbook and is from a line of proven competition horses. Baron was bred by, and remains in training with, Wolfram and Brigitte Wittig who have founded a dynasty of successful sport horses descended from their Grand Prix winning stallion Breitling W out of Devisa, a prolific producer of quality by the thouroughbred stallion Diego. Baron is currently focussing on his training prgram with Wolfram and Brigitte and we are excited about his prospects as a top competition horse. Baron competed in the finals of the pretigious Bundeschampionships in 2010, a magnificent achievement as it was only his third competition. He qualified once for the finals in 2011 dominating the field at the Hille qualifier.
Breitling, Baron’s father, is currently number one in the German breeding index and is known for producing quality yet trainable offspring who include several licensed sons such as Berkeley, Benvenuto, and Baron’s full brother Bertoli. He has also fathered many hugely successful competition horses such as Balderassini, Biagotti, Brioni and Blind Date. For further information please see Breitling’s page in our Sires section.
Baron’s mother is one of the most spectacularly successful of the Wittig’s mares, Devisa is by the Thoroughbred Diego out of a grand-daughter of the great Westfalian jumping sire, Polydor. The Wittigs are rightly proud of the foals Devisa has produced for them. Her first foal Baldessarini born in 1999 is by Breitling, and is now owned by Gina Capellmann-Lütkemeier and competing at Grand Prix. The next one is Biagiotti W, she finished third in the six year old class at the Bundeschampionate and is currently competing small tour. Following her is the stallion Brioni who is now winning at international small tour. Then there is Bertoli who is a breeding stallion and was reserve champion at the World Young Horse in Verden, finalist at the Budeschampionships and now competing at small tour. Next is Balmoral another Bundeschampionship finalist. Then Belstaff another stallion, followed by our own Baron de Ley. That is quite a dynasty from one mare! All of these horses are full siblings to Baron so he has very large shoes to fill in the competition arena.
