The Holsteiner Verband had noticed the success that French blood had in the Oldenburg breed, which had used the stallions Furioso II and Futuro (both by Furioso) to upgrade their stock, and wished to introduce it into their own horses; the Oldenburg breeder Alwin Schockemöhle offered to part-lease the stallion Urioso (by Furioso). An inspection committee travelled to France to evaluate the horse, and happened to find Cor de la Bryere while they were there; the Verband purchased and imported the three-year-old to Schleswig Holstein, Germany, in 1971. The same year, he was the champion of his 100-day Test.
On April 27, 2000, at the age of 32, Cor de la Bryere was put down due to acute heart disease.

Described by breeders as a 'gift from heaven', Cor de la Bryere has been especially successful producing jumping horses, as he passes on his incredible bascule (see here ), scope, and jumping technique. Cor de la Bryere also passed on his willingness and trainability. Romedio Graf von Thun-Hohenstein described the stallion: 'The arching back, like a taut band of steel combined with the super elastic end gives limitless, but always expedient, springing capability to the natural dynamics of each effort. Add to that ease of riding, marvelous disposition, and a floating, highly balanced canter; these qualities are absolutely to the benefit of young horses, who will no longer have to pay with premature breakdowns caused by jumping and showing solely with a raw, crude jumping talent.'
Cor de la Bryere has had an incredible impact on the Holsteiner breed, occurring in more than 70% of Holsteiner pedigrees, and is credited for improving the breed's jumping technique, he also had a huge impact on the Oldenburg breed.
His influence in France was limited, mainly due to his jumping. Although he was quick to fold his front legs, he did not have great power; when crossed with Holsteiner mares, which provided this power, his offspring were very successful in the show ring. However, the French mares did not have this power, so they were usually a poor cross to Cor de la Bryere.
Cor de la Breyer was especially successful in breeding with certain mares. Tabelle (by Heisporn) produced five approved sons, including Calypso I and Calypso II. Furgund (by Colombo) bred with him 18 times, also producing five approved sons. Deka produced Caletto I, II and III, all by the stallion.
Cor de la Bryere stood at Siethwende from 1971 to 1984, Zangersheide 1985, Elmshorn 1986 to 1988, and Sollwittfeld from 1989 until his death in 2000. In his first season, he covered 70 mares, and four colts from his first crop were licensed.
