Floriscount, an impressive, long legged, liver chestnut, with so much presence in person, high rideability and a super character. 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 for this rideability; 10 for his canter, and 9 for trot and 8.38 for walk.
He was placed first in the dressage portion of the test, but his score was dramatically affected by his poor jumping scores. In 2010 and 2011, beginning his dressage career, Floriscount won numerous competitions and qualified for the Bundeschampionat many times. At the same time his breeding career began to flourish. In 2011 two of his sons were placed in the final ring of the German Foal Championships; he dominated Europe’s biggest foal auction in Verden with 21 offspring; and his son Future Star was top-priced foal in Vechta.
His sire, Florencio I, is a twice dressage horese World Champion (he was world champion at both five and six years old), has excelled at Prix St. Georges level and is now competing Intermediare I on his way to Gran Prix.
His dam, El.St. Arkona, is the dam of the Premium Stallion Sandakan (by Sandro Hit), stationed at the Swedish National Stud in Flyinge, and of the Mecklenburg Premium Stallion, Floriscount II - which means that together with Floriscount I she has had 3 licecensed sons out of six colts born! The dam’s sire, Donnerhall, is the epitome of a successful synthesis between breeding and sport.
The granddam, St.Pr./El.St. Arwaldis, was the 1991 Oldenburg Reserve Champion Mare.
This horse is part of our breeding programme bloodline, we DO NOT offer semen.

Just thought I'd let you know how Rocco is doing - he is
absolutely massive I'm sure he's going to make about 18h at this rate!
But he'll be big anyway like you said and just what I wanted. He's a
lovely boy and stands very good when having his foal feet trimmed. He
let's me go into him and make a fuss - he's so easy to handle - unlike my other foal who is an evil monster in miniature! Hope you and horses are well x (Apr 2012)
'Monik is just super. A really happy lady to have around. She lives with
her best buddy Nora (a KWPN broodmare) and they are excellent mates!' (Oct 2011). 'She is a fabulous mum and was indeed five days early as you said
she would be! She is a joy to have around. She lives out with her other
broodmare friend and despite the ridiculous weather is pretty happy!' (Jun 2012)
