Gold medalist of the 2014 Nuernberger Burg-Pokal Musical Kur, the VTV 2014 Dressage Sire of the Year, and the 2nd highest ranking stallion on the German 2014 FN Breeding Value Index list.
Floriscount is surpassing even the highest expectations. At the 2014 Nuernberger Burg-Pokal held in December, he was fantastic. Second in the qualifying round and silver medalist in the Pokal final wasn't enough. Under Oliver Oelrich, he went on to a standing ovation from the audience in the Musical Kur earning an outstanding 9.0!
This victory wrapped up a wonderful year which included being honored as the 2014 VTV Oldenburg dressage stallion of the year given to 9 to 10 year old stallions based on their own performance as well as that of their offspring. Since the FN had rated him with an incredible Breeding Value Index of 170 with a 91% assurity and his offspring were winning in the shows and selling for top prices at the auctions, it wasn't a surprise when the Oldenburg Breeding Committee bestowed him with this award.
With his first crops, Floriscount dominated the 2012 and 2013 Hanoverian licensings in Verden having had the largest amount of offspring selected for both main licensings. In 2012, three of his sons were licensed and one was awarded premium making him the most successful sire there. In 2013, two were licensed and one was again honored as a premium stallion. In Great Britain, Floriscount also presented the 2013 Reserve Champion Stallion, Cathmore Florian. The 2014 licensings were no less impressive. Two of his sons were honored as Premiums at the Hanoverian licensing and one of his sons was selected for the KWPN licensing as well.
In 2013, his first crop of three-year-old mares won several mare shows and did very well at their performance tests. Two black mares qualified for the Oldenburg Elite Mare Show in Rastede after a very good performance test where they received the State Premium award.
He also had four mares selected for a Hanoverian elite mare show in Verden, the prestigious Herward von der Deeken Show. The mare, St.Pr.A. Fleur (Floriscount x Wild Dance), was the reserve champion and later went on to qualify for the German national championships for young horses, known as the Bundeschampionate, when she was again the reserve champion at the Hanoverian State Championships under saddle. At the finals of the Bundeschampionate, Fleur finished fourth overall in the 3 year old mares division.
At the 2014 Hanoverian Fall Elite Auction, Forever Love who had been the bronze medalist at the 2014 Bundeschampionate sold for the top price of the auction. Forever Love ridden by Dora Asendorf scored 8.5's for all three of her gaits, a 9.0 for training and 18.0 from the guest riders in the finals of the Bundeschampionate. Three other Floriscount offspring sold for high prices at the same auction.
Füchtels Floriscount is also omnipresent with his foals at the auction sites and shows throughout Europe. In 2013, Der Lord was the champion foal in Great Britain and the highest scoring Supreme Champion of the British Hanoverian Horse Society.
Füchtels Floriscount, a dark chestnut born in 2005, clearly outshined all others at his stallion performance test and dominantly won the dressage index with perfect scores of 10.0 for his rideability and canter.
In 2010 and 2011, Füchtels Floriscount achieved numerous victories and placings in tests for young dressage horses and qualified repeatedly for the Bundeschampionate. 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 will continue to prepare him for his first competitions at Grand Prix level.
His sire, Florencio I, was the World Champion for young dressage horses in 2004 and 2005 and won the VHO Trophy in Prix St. Georges. This 2004 Oldenburg Dressage Main Premium winner has so far produced over 40 licensed sons.
Floriscount's dam, Elite Mare Arkona, presented the Premium Stallion Sandakan (by Sandro Hit), who is in breeding at the Swedish National Stud, Flyinge, as well as the 2009 Mecklenburg premium stallion, Füchtels Floriscount II, who was sold at the P.S.I. Auction. Arkona's dam, State Premium/Elite Mare Arwaldis, was the Oldenburg Reserve Champion Mare in 1991.
Floriscount's dam's sire, Donnerhall, is a legend and stands for the ideal synthesis of breeding and sport. In 2013 as well, he is among the top ten of the world's best dressage sires according to the WBFSH (World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses).
Due to the Holsteiner sire Tin Rocco by Tin Rod xx and the legendary Vollkorn xx, Floriscount's pedigree is also filled with the best refining genes.
Füchtels Floriscount combines type, size and charisma with excellent rideability and character as well as outstanding basic gaits which he passes resoundingly on to his progeny!
