Rivendell Bulgari’s sire is the imported Hanoverian stallion Florimon, who is an eye-catching Hanoverian stallion with an extraordinary, noble and elegant conformation. He has a fantastic character and rideability, which he passes generously onto his offspring. The aim is to have him lifetime licensed with the Hanoverian Verband on performance once he is successfully competing at Prix st George level. His pedigree features an exceptional bloodline combination.
Florimon was the winner of his stallion performance test and completed his 30-day test with highest scores for all three basic gaits. He scored 8 for trot and 8.25 for canter, the highest scores assigned in the field of 17 competitors. But he also earned above-average scores for walk (7.75) and rideability (8.38).
His sire Falsterbo completed the 30- and 70-days performance test in 2001 in Prussendorf with above-average scores in all disciplines. He won various riding horse ability classes and show jumping ability competitions of novice and elementary level at the age of four and five.
In the meantime, he is a successful dressage competition horse with victories at Intermédiare I-level, and he just recently placed at Grand Prix-classes under Jonny Hilberath. Falsterbo supplied extraordinary foals, lots of them being top-priced auction foals and champions at shows.
Dam’s sire Defacto served as a stud stallion for a short time only, but with Donnerhall and Pik König, his pedigree features international top-class dressage horse genes. A convincing quantity of his few daughters was especially awarded. Walt Disney I in the third generation placed at the final of the German Riding Horse Championships in Mannheim, and he won the subsequent stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf. As he was the best stallion completing the stallion performance test in that year, he was awarded with the Fritz-von-Stenglin-Prize. He was trained up to Grand Prix-level and was for years one of the famous “Celle chestnuts”, the famous, worldwide popular quadrille formation of the Celle National State Stud. In his first breeding years at the Unterweser Insemination Station, he supplied fantastic, exceptional mares with a captivating, perfect exterior, approved stallions and extremely successful competition horses up to highest dressage level. The pedigree is complemented by Lemon xx who produced tough and long-living dressage and event horses, and the valuable Seefischer.
The dam, state premium mare Die Lady, was first-class awarded at the Ratje-Niebuhr-Show, and various other ancestors were also awarded with special prizes. Granddam, state premium mare Walt Lady, was the champion mare at the Louis-Wiegels-Show in Sandbostel in 1999. In 1998, she earned a first-class prize at the Federal Mare Show in Warendorf and in 2008, she supplied an approved son, also by Falsterbo. Her full sister, state premium mare Wendla, is the dam of the approved Oldenburg stallion Fin de Siècle by Florencio I. Great-granddam, state premium mare Larina, is also an approved and highly awarded mare, earning for example a first-class prize at the Louis-Wiegels-Show in 1999 and at the same event, the victory in the family division. Her daughter, state premium mare Wariness (by Weltmeyer), supplied the popular Marbach state stud stallion Epikur by Espri.
Florimon goes back to the Hanoverian mare family 657/Kareda resp. Kroatin (by Kirkland – Denar – Königsleutnant etc.) that has its origin in the area of the long-established Oiste Service Station near Verden. Among the 20 licensed stallions out of this line, Alpdruck (privately owned stallion Westphalia, Bavaria), the important black stallion Amor (privately owned stallion Westphalia), Can Can (state stud stallion Neustadt/D.), Equitano (privately owned stallion Bavaria), the Celle state stud stallions Ernö, Grandseigneur, Lausbub (champion of the Stallion Licensing), Ludendorff and Weingraf, Reccio L (privately owned stallion Hanover) and the Dillenburg state stud stallions Adlerhorst, Weltpoet and Windfang as well as Freya, Fugosa and Faschingsfee, the successful show jumping horses in the 50ies and 60ies, are the most famous representatives out of this line.
