World Champion Damon Hill with Helen Langenhaneberg
With his excellent character and great impression he wins the hearts of everyone he meets. Along with his "day job" as a Grand Prix dressage horse, he is also a breeding stallion in high demand. He captivates through his extraordinary ability, and convinces with his work ethic and desire to please. Dami enjoys the days when he can do his dressage training outdoors on the hills and has a lot of fun with the gymnastic jumping. Quote Ingrid Klimke: "It gives great pleasure to train such a talented horse"
Damon's Design HW's dam is by the World Cup Champion Florencio I
WC of the 5-year-old dressage horses in Verden/Florencio wins with a record-breaking score.
10.0 points for the canter, 9.8 for the walk, 9.7 for the trot, 9.6 for the suppleness, and 9.9 points for the overall impression. Astronomical results for a stallion which seems to be from a different sphere: Florencio wins the World Championship of the 5-year-old dressage horses. With the total score of 9.80, the dark bay Westphalian under his Dutch rider Hans Peter Minderhoud established a new championship record. Already during the qualification round Florencio proofed his exceptional quality. Unimpressed with the downpours and the heavy ground of the test arena, he won confidently achieving 9.8 points each for the trot and for the canter, 9.5 for the walk as well as for the suppleness, and 9.7 for the overall impression which added up to a total score of 9.66. In the final test, the sire from Ludwig Kathmann's stallion station in Vechta-Holtrup did his role as the favorite candidate justice. Despite the strong wind which was blowing in the stadium in Verden, the young stallion concentrated exemplarily on the aids of his rider. The expressive trot, the picture-perfect canter as well as the rhythmic, ground-covering and calm walk impressed both the audience and the judges. The comment of judge Jenny Loriston-Clark from Great Britain brought it to the point: "What a wonderful horse."
Last year Florencio won the Westphalian Championship under Simon Drop, and at the German Championship in Warendorf he became vice-champion of the 4-year-old stallions.
Susanne Sanal from Kamen bred the Florestan I-son Florencio out of Walessa by Weltmeyer-Pik Bube I. Florencio was approved by the Oldenburg breeding association. Six of the foals from his first foal age class have been admitted so far for the 3rd Elite Foal Auction in Vechta on the 20th August 2004 at the Oldenburg Horse Centre in Vechta. He debuted as a sire at the 60th Oldenburg Elite Auction in April 2004: At that event a Florencio-son was sold for 10,000 Euros to Great Britain.
Florencio is undoubtedly a great gain for the dressage breeding. His unbelievable beauty in conjunction with his natural light, 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 Westphalia and Hanoverian studbooks. He carries with him all the blood and expression necessary for 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, Fuerst Heinrich, Faveur, Flores, Freestyle and Flieder. Florencio's grandsire Weltmeyer is one of the most famous stud stallions in Hannover with countless approved sons and offspring in the dressage sport. He has sired over 88 graded sons. His 'Hall of Fame' features outstanding sons like Wall Street, Weltburger, Wee Weltmeyer, Weserperle S, Wesley, Wolkenkranz and the full brothers Welt Hit I 0, II, III, IV, V, and six VI. Weltmeyer's sire World Cup I, full brother to White Foot's sire World Cup III, sired sixteen graded stallions including Walt Disney I, Walt Disney II, and Warkant. His international dressage portfolio includes Welcome, Without A Doubt, Watusi, and Walzerkoenig. Progeny have accumulated winnings in excess of £310,000. Further into Florencio's pedigree we also encounter the famous dressage progenitor Pik Bube . Pik Bube , was a very successful dressage stallion and a top sire of breeding, dressage and sport horses including 30 graded sons of which International competitors Pikant, Plaisir d'Amour 002, Paddy and Pik Primaire are some of the most successful. All in all, the dressage genes are firmly anchored in Florencio.
