PREMIUM GRADED BROODMARE in foal to BIG STAR. Proven Broodmare, dam of Champion and Elite Graded Offspring • UK

USD $12,257


Tayvale Illusion is a SHBGB Premium Graded Mare.

She has a superb temperament, is kind and easy to do. She is bold, talented and full of scope.

Tayvale Illusion has an excellent front and length of neck, a well defined topline and very good quarters. She has expressive paces with great extension and adjustability. She oozes presence and has abundant quality. Described at grading as a “beautiful” mare.

Tayvale Illusion is by Balloon (see Video) who is by Balou du Rouet. Balloon was a 1.60m Grand Prix show jumper and competed on several Nations Cup Teams. Tayvale Illusion’s damline exudes the very best of Irish Show Jumping and Eventing Breeding. She is out of a mare by Master Imp with Cruising, Highland Flight and other top class blood in her pedigree. 

Tayvale Illusion has bred two foals. Smiling (2022) was SHBGB Elite graded and SHBGB Chamption Foal (Eventing) and his full brother Tarry Flynn (2023) was also Elite Graded and 3rd placed SHBGB graded foal that year. 


This is an unfortunate but necessary sale due to persistent illhealth.
