Owned privately by John & Mandi Meer since he was a foal, Balinmore Irish Rebel is a true allrounder. A supremely powerful purebred Irish Draught Stallion with a magnetic presence he is a Breed National Male Youngstock Champion & Reserve Supreme Champion in his own right. He is recognised by HSI in Ireland & is also BS Approved for competition & is currently (or so we believe) the only purebred Irish Draught stallion to be licensed with Breeders Elite Studbook.
A highly athletic stallion he has BS winnings & British Dressage points & has also won working hunter & combined training classes as well as dressage. His temperament is second to none & whilst he is a powerful unit, he is kind to a fault & can often be found cuddling children. He travels in the lorry with any horse...stallion, mare or gelding.
With 5 Grade A Show Jumpers in his breeding & a wealth of blue bloodlines for the Irish Draught enthusiast, he is a natural choice for adding presence, power, bone & athleticism. He will often be seen promoting the Irish Draught Breed at major stallion parades including at Burghley Horse Trials.
He carries the now very rare Mountain Prince bloodline as a result of which he is on the Royal Dublin Society Genetic Diversity Programme & therefore has frozen semen available in Ireland for purebred mares. Sport Horse mares in Northern Ireland should contact us directly for semen shipment.
His progeny are now beginning to make themselves known. All have won or been placed at high County Level &/or National Breed Show level. They are also receiving excellent marks & comments from the BEF Futurities & in 2016 Arrathorne Lawbreaker& Arrathornes Alderaan gained a First & Higher First Premium, both being recognised as having star quality and superstar futures. Alderaan gave his sire the highest mark ever achieved to date by a purebred Irishd Draught Stallion at the BEF Futurities.
Available by AI only (fresh & chilled subject to competition schedule), frozen semen is always available. Come & meet him...his photos never do him justice & you won't be disappointed!
