About Brillante

This is a great sporty PRE stallion with the gentle character and inner calm necessary for a competition horse. He performs the same home as away and he has the most impressive lineage for breeding.

When you are a professional breeder of PRE horses you know the value of the line Ermitaño III. The first horse to become both Elite and Improver Breeding Stock. He obtained the genetic assessment for his descendants by means of a positive Global Genetic Index, with a repeatability score greater than 0.6 in the PRE Breeding Program. Thanks to this result, this stallion inaugurated the LG PRE ANCCE Elite Breeding Stock register.

Ermitaño III has bequeathed an impressive legacy in the PRE Stud Book, with 260 sons/daughters and 1907 grandchildren. Over the years, several of his progeny have obtained the category of Young Recommended Breeding Stock. Brillante los Arcos is line bred on Ermitaño III and carries this famous stud in both paternal grand fathers.

Brillante los Arcos carries the signature movement of this famous elite stallion. Few PRE horses have three natural paces like Brillante los Arcos. If you are looking to breed pure sport PRE horses made for the international FEI arena, you will not fail with this stud.

We use Select Breeders Southwest, Inc. for our collections and shipping. Download their shipping request forms below.

Yes, however, you should check on Brillante’s availability, which is not guaranteed out of season. His availability will be scheduled around shows, expos, travel and other considerations.

While each year varies, Brillante is typically not available for fresh cooled semen collections before February 28th or after August 19th.


  • Frozen semen can be ordered in advance and stored to be used when the mare is ready.
  • It may be able to be shipped on a day that fresh collection is not possible due to collection schedule, shows, breeding season etc.
  • Multiple doses can be sent at one time. For owners interested in breeding multiple mares and/or multiple years this may be a potential cost saver.
  • Frozen semen is the only way to breed mares being inseminated outside of the United States and Canada.


  • Shipping is more expensive then fresh cooled.
  • Ideally a storage tank is available to transfer the semen into, however, with correct timing, frozen semen can be used from the shipping tank.
  • A Veterinarian should be familiar and experienced with frozen semen.
  • It requires more frequent checks of the mare.

We send out 8 straws per dose.

There is additional paperwork and import permits that need to be done regardless of semen being sent fresh or frozen.

The expense of shipping to Canada and the added hassle of additional paperwork and potential transport/customs delays makes frozen semen more appealing to some mare owners, especially owners breeding more than 1 mare.

It is important to note that same day service is not available to Canada, but the every other day collection schedule remains the same during Brillante’s breeding season. This is another reason some mare owners in Canada prefer frozen semen use.

Fresh cooled semen generally makes more sense for mare owners in the Eastern half of Canada; however, fresh cooled semen is available for all of Canada.

Without a new or amended contract, it is illegal and a breach of contract to use frozen semen in any way other than it’s intended contracted use.

To legally use extra semen you have in storage, additional stud fees must be paid on new contracts. The per dose fee is only paid once, once you have shipped breeding doses only the stud fee would need to be paid for added mare(s) or year(s).

All frozen semen not used or on an open contract must be destroyed. Please be sure to read your frozen semen contract.
