"An absolutely world-class horse with an incredible presence! A horse with great movements including the certain potential"...
...got the commentator Christoph Hess into raptures at the final of the Nürnberger Burg Pokal about Floriscount. With 72.97%, Füchtels Floriscount and Oliver Oelrich the second rank in the prestige duel for the best prospects in Germany and was unbeatable in the winners trophy with a round score of 9.0. In advance, he has already been awarded the title VTV Dressage Stallion, due to his outstanding athletic performance that is proven with victories up to international Inter I competitions. Right at the first publication of his breeding value by the German Equestrian Federation (FN), Floriscount OLD made it to be among the top top 1% of the best German sires for rideability – and that with a record-breaking breeding value of 170 points with a safety factor of 91 percent. This confirms the high estimated breeding value of his first progeny with their outstanding basic gaits and their excellent rideability.
Floriscount a dark chestnut born in 2005, looks just like his grandsire. His pedigree: Florencio I / Donnerhall / Walldorf / Tin Rocco / Vollkorn xx. He dominates the licensing sites in Germany with his first crops of colts: Eight sons have yet been licensed in Germany – two of them reached the Premium ring in Verden. In Great Britain, he presented the Reserve Champion Stallion Cathmor Florian at the beginning of 2013. In the Hanoverian Riding Horse Championship for four-year old mares and geldings, Floriscount could be found three times in the final list of results. His daughter Forever Love became Vice Champion, the mares Friedegund and Fleur took seventh and ninth place. In the championship for four-year old stallions Ferdinand collected the ribbon for the fifth place and in the group of three-year old stallions the Floriscount descendant Fidelio B placed himself in the final competition. Nearly a month later, Forever Love, who belongs with 2010 as year of birth to the eldest registered offspring of Floriscount, was found on third place in the winning ceremony at the Bundeschampionat.
In 2013 in Verden, the mare Fleur became Reserve Champion Mare at the Herwart von der Decken Show as well as Hanoverian Vice Champion. At the Bundeschampionat she placed fourth in the final of three-year old riding horses. In 2014 the mare Fräulein Hansemann was the celebrated Champion of the Hanoverian Friedrich-Jahncke-Show. At the Oldenburg Elite Broodmare Show in Rastede the Floriscount daughter Wega Contessa trotted in the Brillantring and the mare Rosche Flor and White Fleur have been qualified as well.
Floriscount outshone clearly all others at his stallion performance test and won dominantly the dressage index with scores up to 10.0 for his rideability and canter. In 2010 and 2011, Floriscount OLD achieved numerous victories and placings in test for young dressage horses and qualified repeatedly for the Bundeschampionat. Under the saddle of Christoph Koschel, he added his first placings in advanced dressage classes at the age of only seven. In 2014, Oliver Oelrich continued his further training and collected right away victories and placings on International level. So this pair won both St.Georges Specials in Verden and therewith qualified for the final of the Nürnberg Burgpokal as well as the Inter I competition in Nieuw en Sint Joosland/NED, where he placed second in the St.Georges and third in the Freestyle. Further placings with the best followed in Hagen and Balve. Floriscount OLD, who is member of the OLD Sport Promotion Team, is now on the way up to Grand Prix.
Fiori EdA is probably the most gorgeous foal to be born since our beginning as breeders. He has it all: Extremely masculine presence, very very good topline, impressive neck and movements. A rough start in life has postponed his sale, but he quickly found a new home in Kentuky, USA, and now his new onwer is the lucky one enjoying his cheerfull character and striking beauty on a daily basis. Fiori is the last foal of his dam, the State Premium mare Destemona, by De Niro. Destemona has earned her well deserved retirement, and she will stay with us to keep company to our old gal Automne.
