Leafy Bullet Rissla Leafy Bullet
GSB #696

Color: Golden Chestnut
Sex: Mare
Foaled: 1917

Sire: *Berk (Seyal x Bukra by Ahmar)

Dam: Risala (Mesaoud x Ridaa by Merzuk)

Breeder: Crabbet Park Arabian Stud. Sussex, England.

Dam of world-wide influence with 13 registered purebred Arabian foals (4 colts and 9 fillies) of which her daughters Risslina and *Rifala both carried forward mid-pedigree the Rissla branch of this Rodania dam line in our foundation bloodstock at Arieana Arabians.

From our Arieana Notebook: Rissla has been described as one of the best mares ever bred at Crabbet. Inheriting the remarkably brilliant action of her sire *Berk and numerous qualities from her dam RisalaRissla certainly was a wonderful broodmare and became famous throughout the world for the exceptional qualities she herself possessed and passed on to her descendants. A golden chestnut with a blaze and four white legs, Rissla was a most beautiful type of mare with a splendid front and good deep body. Her outstanding attributes were her lovely head, great quality and perfect style and action; these traits were very largely inherited by her foals and their foals. Thus Rissla established a dynasty of her own while ensuring an international reputation for her sire *Berk as a breeding horse. For us at Arieana Arabians we find Rissla's superb qualities coming down to us mid-pedigree through her daughters Risslina and *Rifala.

In 1945 at the age of twenty-eight Rissla was put down, but the memory of this wonderful chestnut mare with her beauty and true floating action will live on through her descendants in countries all over the world.

Notes on Rissla are derived from an article by Rosemary Archer which first appeared in the Spring 1972 issue of Great Britain's Arab Horse Society News and then was reprinted in the Arabian Horse World, May 1975, with the kind permission of its editor, Margaret Greely. We thank Windwalker for sharing this article with us.
