Beautiful chestnut mare 16hh 6 year old by Floriscount (Florencio/Florestan) out of our foundation mare Latona. Our first home bred and we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect horse. 3 top paces. She really moves through her body and is so elastic, soft and swinging. Incredibly good in the rein and is always in a super, easy self carriage. Floriana was awarded a First Premium last year at The BEF Futurity at Hartpury gaining an overall mark of 8.3. Coupled with a truly outstanding temperament we are extremely excited about her future. Currently in training with Abbie Newbury. Scoring low 70’s Elementary and placed top 15 Badminton Young Horse Championships 2016 on a mark of 39 with the winner on 41.
Floriscount dominated his competitors at his performance test, winning the dressage index with scores up to 10.0 for rideability and his canter.
His debut as a sire in 2010 was a sensation and everyone talked about his strong type foals. All over Germany, they won foal shows and brought top prices at the Verband auctions.
Floriscount qualified for the 2010 Bundeschampionat and placed in numerous elementary (L) level tests for young dressage horses. In autumn 2012 Floriscount moved to the stables of Jurgen Koschel, where he will be prepared for the PSG and Grand Prix tour by Jurgen’s son Christoph. His sire, Florencio I, was the 2004 and 2005 World Champion of young dressage horses and in 2009 he won the coveted VHO Trophy at St. Georges level. The winner of the main premium for stallions with emphasis on dressage in 2004, he has meanwhile sired nearly 40 sons that have been licensed.
The dam, El.St. Arkona, is also the dam of the premium stallion Sandakan (by Sandro Hit) who is stationed at the Swedish National Stud in Flyinge and Floriscount II who received a premium in Mecklenburg in 2009. The dam’s sire, Donnerhall, is a legend and represents the perfect synthesis of breeding and sport. According to the statistics of the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses, he still ranked second among the world’s best dressage sires in 2010. The granddam, St.Pr./El.St. Arwaldis, was the 1991 Oldenburg Reserve Champion Mare.
The pedigree is well shored up with Thoroughbred bloodlines through the Holstein sire Tin Rocco by Tin Rod xx and the legendary Vollkorn xx. Floriscount unites type, size and presence with outstanding rideability and temperament as well as excellent gaits and he passes on all of these traits to his offspring!
In 2012 Floriscount’s first crop of sons was assessed. In the UK, his son Cathmor Florian was the top scoring 2 yr old dressage horse in the Futurity series, and reserve champion at the BWBS stallion licensing. In Hanover, his three sons presented at the stallion licensing were all approved, with one being awarded a premium and selling for €87,000.
