I am happy to introduce Floriscount, a sparkling new young stallion that will be available for the first time to U.S. breeders in 2010.
He has already received high praise for his basic gaits and ride ability. In his HLP in Schlieckau he earned a total of 128.80 points and was placed 2nd out of 39 participants; scoring 10 from the test riders; 10 for his gallop, and 9 for trot, 8.38 for walk! He was first placed in the dressage portion of the test.
Floriscount is a highly modern, long legged stallion with so much presence in person, exceedingly high ride ability and super character.
His sire, FLORENCIO, is a former World Champion of the 5 and 6 year olds who is now competing Intermediare I on his way to Gran Prix.
The dam of Floriscount is the Elite Mare “ARKONA” by DONNERHALL. She is creating her own stallion dynasty, having already had 3 licensed sons out of 6 colts born!
The grand dam is the StPr/Elite mare “ARWALDIS” by “WALLDORF”. She was the reserve mare at Rastede in 1991 and was one of the highest priced riding horses after her first foal at the Vechta Elite auction in 1993.
I see him as an excellent type to use for our market here, where we want to produce “rider friendly” horses in a nice type.
He stands at stud through Landegestuet Celle in the Hanoverian region and Hengststation Boeckmann in the Oldenburg region.
