Andorra is by double World Champion Stallion Florencio and bred by the breeders of Reserve Champion stallions Fürst Grandios and First Final. Andorra's dam is a State Premium mare who has already bred a licensed Stallion - Doc Martens by De Niro and a State Premium daughter - we hope Andorra will follow in her footsteps when she is presented for grading later in the year!
Andorra has given birth to a fabulous filly by the sensational young stallion Sezuan who made history when he obtained a record breaking result of 10 x 10.00 at his performance test!

Sire Florencio
Double World Champion, Florencio is undoubtedly a great gain for the dressage breeding. His unbelievable beauty in conjunction with his naturally light-footed, uphill movements makes him a revelation to every dressage lover. Florencio is a stallion who is bred for dressage from the cream of the crop of stud stallions in the Westphalian and Hanoverian studbooks, he carries with him all the blood and expression necessary for the dressage breeding.

His sire Florestan I is the outstanding dressage ambassador of the Westphalian Studbook, Florestan I has several approved sons such as Fidermark, Fleurop, Fürst Heinrich, Faveur, Neostan, Flores, Freestyle and Flieder. Damsire Weltmeyer won his licensing, his performance test, and was Stallion of The Year 1998.  He has over 70 licensed sons, and his high Breeding Index (152) from the German Equestrian Federation comes with a 99% reliability coefficient. He now shines as a damsire (seen in Danone I and II and Bentley) as do his sons - as with Jack Sparrow, Desperados and Don Frederic.   Further on in Florencio¹s pedigree we encounter the famous dressage progenitor Pik Bube. All in all, the dressage genes are very firmly anchored in Florencio. Florencio completed his performance test in Zweibrucken and earned a huge score for all the dressage elements. Character: 8.5; Walk: 10; Trot: 8.2; Canter: 9.2; ’Rittigkeit’: 9.5. In 2003 Florencio was Reserve Champion of the whole of Germany in the prestigious Bundeschampionate. He was also overall Champion of the 4 year olds in Westphalia.

Florencio was Dressage World Champion at Verden in 2004 with Hans Peter Minderhoud. They achieved the highest score ever given: 9.80!! Florencio became World Champion Dressage for the second time in 2005!! Florencio had six sons approved in Oldenburg and Westfalen out of his first crop and at both selections one of them achieved the title “Premiehengst”. His offspring are noteably outstanding by their enormous presence and three very good basic gaits.

Dam St.Pr.St Agentin
Dam Agentin is a very proven broodmare not only is she a State Premium mare but she is also a stallion mother! She has bred some exceptional offspring including Licensed stallion Doc Martens by De Niro and State Premium mare Agraziella by Gracieux. Three of her foals have been selected and sold through the prestigious Oldenburg Auction. We hope that Andorra will also grade premium when she is presented later this year.

Agentin's sire Enterprice was a top show jumper as was his sire KWPN Licensed stallion Nabuur. Nabuur's sire was the the great Thoroughbred stallion, Uppercut XX. He was awarded the very rare Crown Predicate by the KWPN. He was an international show jumping champion himself, and he produced many international show jumping champions, stallion sons and highly awarded daughters. Argentinus needs no introduction he is a legend! He was Champion Stallion in Oldenburg, Stallion of the Year in Hanover – but the statistics on his internationally successful off-spring show the true dimensions of his greatness. His son, Arko ESI, brought 130,000 Euro, making him at the time the most expensive warmblood foal ever sold at an auction in Germany. A full brother of this price record breaker, Arko III, was the most successful show jumper in the world twice under Nick Skelton.
