"Fuechtels Floriscount OLD" rocks the Frankfurt Burgpokal final 2014!
It was an incredible year and the show at Frankfurt was unbeatable for everyone with Floriscount and Oliver Oelrich at the final of the Burgpokal 2014! Only the 15 winners of the qualifications all over Germany were allowed to start at Frankfurt!
His incredible appearance, his great suppleness and super gaits made him second in the warm up on fryday morning with just 0,1 percent less than Isabell Werth and Emilio. He was the one to beat in the final round on saturday everyone was sure.
But Matthias Alexander Rath as second starter had a top show getting 74,5 percent with his Samba King. Füchtels Floriscount began great, still improving from the day before but then had a little mistake in the pirouettes in his really engaged show. Even though everything else was just perfect he received only 72,97 per cent but this was the "silver medal" and rank two in the final!! A great success for an "amazing, or just really a world class horse!", this was the comment of Christof Hess.
In the Winning round of the Burg Pokal final as Kur to Music he showed this to all spectators: Incredible appearance, sensational gaits made the crowd shout out their enthusiasm for a brilliant achievement with standing ovations. He got an incredible score of 90 percent and was the undoubtable winner!
It was an unbeliveable moment seeing him there in the ceremony standing absolutely still and looking around in the arena! We are so proud and happy about this success.
Now we prepare him for the breeding season and will show him next time in his first Grand Prix in 2015! Have a good new year everyone!
"VTV Stallion of the year" award 2014 for "Füchtels Floriscount"
What a great success!! Our "Floriscount" received the prestigious "VTV stallion of the year 2014" award at the Oldenburg stallion show on saturday at the stallion parade.
With an incredible show under rider Oliver Oelrich and with a comment of his collegue Hans Heinrich Meyer zu Strohen Floriscount showed his super elegance in combination with power and fantastic gaits up to the highest levels. The crowd and spectators were really amazed how he develops and improves from year to year and there is no question why he is coming along so popular with his offsprings and his sport carreer.
We say thank you to the VTV sponsor, to our team and Oliver and Hans Heinrich as well as to all our breeders who trusted us and Floriscount in the past! We now go on to the Frankfurt Burgpokal final and hope to see you all there!! Here you see him at the 2014 Stallion Show
