Fantine's Aria FH
2016 Floriscount x Dacaprio x Wolkenstein II
We lucked into getting another mare from Eliza Rutherford in Vermont, USA. We have Havannah FH, Safira and now Aria FH here. Floriscount has been a stallion we noticed when he was 3 years old in the stallion shows over in Europe. Colour us impressed. He was one we noted to keep an eye on and he has certainly impressed. He has produced rideable, talented, nice horses to have in the barn, and the Floriscounts are now showing up as great broodmares.
Dam, EM Dallara won her regional foal show in Germany and qualified for the
Hanoverian Foal Championships. She was the #1 yearling filly in the 2002 USDF Horse of
the Year standings. Dallara was presented to the AHS for studbook approval in 2005 (with a
foal by her side) and was Reserve Champion with an overall score of 7.5. In 2006 she was
Champion of her MPT and become an Elite Mare. She was the second highest scoring mare
in the country with an unbelievable 8.44 (8's and 9's on all scores!). Also in 2006 Dallara was
named Champion Mare and Champion Mature Horse at the Broadfield's Dressage Sport
Fantine's Aria FH had an extremely successful in-hand show career in the USA. Named top filly at her Hanoverian inspection, she has gone on to win countless ribbons as a yearling on-wards. She's shown under saddle in the dressage ring too, with a remarkably quiet temperament and excellent scores as well. She is able to be ridden, which greatly appeals to me who is hoping to get back in the saddle sooner rather than later. Aria may be one we consider doing ET on and I have to ride!
Aria is in foal to the superb stallion Iron (Ibiza x Hohenstein) for 2023. This foal is sold.
