Florianus II, Crown is an international Grand Prix horse producing winning athletes, with exceptional movement, rideability and character.
Florianus II is everything you want in a modern sport horse. He is kind, with good conformation and supple, elastic gaits. His bloodlines represent the cream of the international crop. They are matched by his own outstanding and long career at Grand Prix in the most competitive arenas in Europe and North America. As a sire, his offspring have won at the CDI Grand Prix level, and are recognized for their extraordinary character, rideability and movement.
These sons and daughters earned him the blue ribbon in the prestigious Get of Sire class at Dressage at Devon for two consecutive years.
Among his performance offspring: the CDI-winning Grand Prix dressage mare Rhythm and Blues (formerly Florencia B), and the Approved Stallion, For Set, who's competing Prix St. Georges in Europe.
In 2020, several Florianus offspring earned USDF All Breeds Awards and top placings in the GAIG/USDF Regional Championships. Florianus is also a versatile sire, with winning eventers, hunters, jumpers and equitation horses.
In 2019, Florianus had several blue-ribbon dressage offspring: Freska, winning 4th Level; Fabienne SWF, winning in materiale classes, and Jelisco SSF and Kasarah both winning at Training Level. Also, in 2019, Nekoosa was #2 Hunter Yearling, KWPN-NA, and Odonata was #4 Hunter Foal, KWPNA-NA.
In addition, Flori's daughter Floraya ISF continued her winning ways in the jumper division in Florida, picking up numerous championships in 2019 and 2020.
ADR's Fuasto represented Florianus in eventing in 2019, qualifying for the Area 7 Championships and the Five-Year-Old Young Event Horse Championships.
Florianus began his international dressage career at the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Warendorf, Germany. He quickly ascended the levels to CDI Grand Prix with Karin Rehbein. Florianus II was named the most successful Westfalen dressage horse in Germany and won more than 22,000 euros in prize money. After his importation to the USA, he finished first in numerous Grand Prix classes before retiring sound.
Florianus II has an incredible work ethic. His flexibility and scope, along with an outstanding ability to collect, helped him excel in the most difficult movements of passage, piaffe and pirouette.
Florianus II is a son of one of the most popular and prolific sires of the modern era—Florestan I. Among Florestan’s many successful offspring are the young horse champions Florencio, French Kiss, Fürst Heinrich and Fidermark, as well as top Grand Prix horses such as Floriano, Forrest Gump and Glock’s Flirt.

Florianus’ damline is also exceptional. His dam, St.Pr.St. Die Dame, competed in dressage and jumped 1.2m before becoming a broodmare. She produced 12 offspring, including the Approved Westfalen stallion Funkenstolz, the international Grand Prix competitor Fur Immer, and international jumpers Lady Lancer D and Lucina 20. Die Dame is a full sister to the Westfalen stallion Dottore, who stood at the Warendorf State Stud.
