Again and again, Florencio’s offspring prove themselves: several offspring scores over 70% at Grand Prix level – including the approved stallion Florenciano, ridden by Hubertus Schmidt, nearly 40 sons of Florencio are approved stallions, including the KWPN approved Charmeur, his son Borencio won the Pavo Cup for young dressage horses twice and many times his daughters turned out as true stars at KWPN Mare Inspections.
Sire Florestan I is an outstanding dressage ambassador of Westphalia, with many approved sons, like Fidermark, Fleurop, Fürst Heinrich, Faveur, Neostan, Flores, Freestyle and Flieder. Grandsire Weltmeyer is one of the most famous sires of Hannover with countless approved sons and offspring at the highest level of dressage, while great-grandsire Pik Bube is a world-famous sire too.
These outstanding dressage genes were expressed through Florencio at already a young age: in 2003 Florencio became reserve champion of Germany at the prestigious Bundeschampionat and as a 4-year-old Florencio became champion of Westphalia. Ridden by Hans Peter Minderhoud, Florencio became World Champion for young dressage horses in Verden in both 2004 and 2005. Later on, he dominated the Dutch VHO-Trophy twice at Prix St. Georges level.
