Fantine's Aria FH
The Full Story
Floriscount x Dacaprio x Wolkenstein II
Our newest mare, and one we are so excited about. We've followed Floriscount since he was 3 years old and showing at the stallion shows in Europe. He was one I saved in my head, as one that we need to follow. Lo and behold, Floriscount has turned out to be one of the top rated sires for rideability and temperament. Christoph Hess exclaimed Floriscount as "An absolutely world-class horse with an incredible presence! A horse with great movements including the certain potential” We are now starting to see Floriscounts showing up as broodmares and they are very impressive producers.
Dam EM Dallara (Dacaprio x Wolkenstein II) 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 Horse Show.
Fantine's Aria FH has had an extremely successful career, even at her young age. Champion at her foal inspection, impressive show record as a yearling on-wards as well. Many awards to her name, and lots of off farm experience which will be a plus for me. Aria will be my personal riding horse as well as a trail/beach horse. We plan to potentially use her for ET's so I can ride and show her. She is a mare I am very excited about! Many thanks again to Eliza Rutherford for selling us another wonderful mare!
